Visual Artists' Sustainability Survey

Raising Artists

Are you surviving or thriving? Please give us your feedback in this survey!


If you had asked me five years ago if I would be willing to spend over $45,000 of my own money, and volunteer nearly full time for four years while scrambling to pay my own bills and hardly ever make it to the studio, I would have laughed at you. I started Generous Art so I would have the chance to sell art in a way I could stomach, and to support nonprofits that help me survive. The more stories I heard from artists about our struggles to financially survive while still appearing as working professionals, the more dedicated I became. When I talk to people about the broken business models in the art world, they are shocked; but they can relate it to the music industry which has done a much better job advocating about the problems. There really are not many people or agencies advocating for Visual Artists, locally, regionally, or nationally.

Please share your data so we can advocate for you, so you have a chance to do your best work. And then please share the survey with your artist friends.

Thank you-- Jennifer Chenoweth

Curator's Roundtable Luncheon 2014

Curator's Roundtable Photos

On Tuesday, February 18, we invited Austin's community of curators and our board of directors to meet for lunch in the Crenshaw Room at the Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum. We discussed our new Curatorial Board, Artwork Criteria, and Curatorial Statement, developed by Independent Curator Salvador Jaime Castillo and the Artist's Liason to the GA Board Eleanor Droll. We talked about our mission to empower artists and sustain communities, and how we've grown.

The curators in attendance provided great insights on how to design our new Curatorial Board. We look forward to having their input on our next call for artists.

We plan to create more opportunities for curators to participate in Generous Art's dynamic shows and professional development for artists.

Many thanks to the Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Trento for hosting and catering this event!
