In May of 2022, GAC partnered with the Business Centre Guelph-Wellington to provide a free workshop on the art of pricing for visual artists. Like most arts business related topics, pricing your artwork can often feel steeped in uncertainty.
This workshop walks artists through some of the different ways that artwork can be priced. We focus on a variety of specific mediums and artistic practices including 2 dimensional works, photography, selling reproductions and 3 dimensional works like jewelry and sculpture. The session also covered artists rights, commissions and contracts.
Please note, there are as many ways to price artwork as there are artists. Guelph Arts Council believes that there is no ‘right way’ to price your artwork, only a system that works best for you!
Do you have a different way that you price your artwork? Reach out to us at [email protected]. The Guelph Arts Community has a wealth of knowledge and experience that we would love to share with our readers!
