Writing Text for Artwork with Dave Geada –Coronavirus For Artists – Art Marketing Tips

Writing Text for Artwork or artwork descriptions are an essential factor as to why people buy your artwork.

They can be most often seen on your exhibition art labels, in your image descriptions on your website or social media.    Although they are not essential for your website, they are great for increasing your SEO and keywords. In addition,  inspirational artwork descriptions make your artwork more enticing to share on social media. Read more about describing your artwork here.

In this conversation, Dave Geada, Chief Marketing Officer at BoldBrush and FASO, chats with Graeme Stevenson OAM – host and founder of Colour in Your Life TV Show. They discuss the importance of writing the descriptive text for your artwork, and how these ideas can relate and apply to your own art career, and most importantly get you selling more work.

What does Dave say?

By introducing emotion into our storytelling, into the descriptions of our artwork, that increases the likelihood that those emotions will resonate with our buyers and cause them to buy from us.

This is even more relevant as many of us are in self-isolation because of COVID-19. Online selling through efficient websites, like FASO, using clever marketing campaigns and video like Colour in Your Life are the best way to get our art out to the world.

The coronavirus pandemic is an especially challenging time for artists.

We hope to be able to help you through these times with useful tips on all aspects of your practice. Graeme Stevenson will be talking to industry professionals and professional artists, and sharing this information with you as part of the Survive and Thrive YouTube Series – Covid19 For Artists. We hope you gain some tips to help sell your work during and after the coronavirus pandemic.
