My son, a successful potter with an Etsy site is now a manager at Pewabic. His comment is taxes will be a breeze this year. The business end of his own pottery business was a complicated nightmare. His wife, good at details....agrees.
Put a specific dollar amount on your time when you calculate the cost of creating something.
An MFA is a very expensive, unnecessary, sometimes-counterproductive path to "legitimacy" in the art world. Things are shifting so fast right now that unless you're dead and your last name is Van Gogh, nothing is a sure thing, so a highfalutin degree isn't worth your time or investment. If you've proven that you have the gumption to put together a portfolio worthy of being admitted to one of the top 5 MFA programs, unless they give you a full-ride, tell them "thanks, but no thanks". Then take that momentum of energy you put into your portfolio and use it as a foundation to network and self-educate non-stop 50 hours a week for the next two years (and also commit another 40 to your studio practice). That's basically grad school sans institutional condescension. And, a side note, the MFA is unfortunately the only way a college will let you teach for them, but, what's not mentioned is that, even if you go this route for a "stable income base" to support your art career, you're very, very, VERY unlikely to rise above an adjunct position that pays more than $4K a semester. That's $8K a year for a $75K degree...not a ROI for rational people, folks.
An exhibit of work by Albion artist Keli Spears Hindenach opens Saturday in O'Flynn's Art Gallery in Cedar Springs and runs through March 20. Jewelry by Keli is available at Yesterday's News in downtown Albion. A portion of the sales benefits Friends of Albion's Animals. ... See MoreSee Less

We especially invite musical groups to share a post to their musician’s Facebook page or for visual artists to share a link to their artist Facebook page. Likewise, we are happy to see performing artists share links to their theatre site, or to share special events on this page. We hope this page will be a resource for not only the artists, but also for the patrons of the arts in Albion, Michigan.
