Seven Things to Say to an Artist When Discussing His/Her Art

Seven Things to Say to an Artist When Discussing His/Her Art

  1. Be sure to give constructive and irrelevant criticism while comparing your relative, who knows how to “draw”.
  2. Always measure success in terms of sales, because that’s what matters, right? And no one creates art for art’s sake!
  3. Inquire about the price of a particular piece or a commission, then make a substantially lower offer to purchase or start a bidding war like akin to swap meets and flea markets. After all, You are doing them a favor by making a purchase.
  4. Make the Artist acutely aware of said favor being bestowed.
  5. Refer back to aforementioned relative and how he or she could do it cheaper, free, and/or better.
  6. Let the artist know that the work is not especially creative, and how so and so or you could do it better, IF you really wanted to.
  7. Stand there gawking in awkward silence (Artists love that).

Share your funny stories.
