Calling all artists!!
Our LocalArtLA.com organization was recently contacted by the producers of the TV show “Home Made Simple” which airs on the Oprah Winfrey Network. The reality show details creative ways to tackle household projects and as part of their show they are looking for artists who would be willing to donate their artwork in exchange for airtime promotion on one of their shows.
If chosen, your artwork would appear in one of the shows and be permanently placed in one of the home that the show is showcasing. In addition it is possible that you might also appear on the show itself hanging your work.

Los Angeles may be to art what Paris is to fashion, providing an array of eclectic creations in every style and medium, yet in this recession-ravaged economy even die-hard collectors have scaled back on their gallery splurges. This poses a serious challenge not just for gallerists but for the glut of ambitious artists who seek to attract their attention. Localartla.com spoke with a few gallery representatives about what they think of the city's art market, how they choose artists to feature and what type of work is most in demand now.
Paying your dues is not something foreign to most artists, especially those who dedicate their lives to the profession and strive to maintain a focus on that artistic drive that we all feel inside. And nothing less could be said for Daniel Henigman, a life long artist who moved to Los Angles, immersed himself in the local art scene and established himself both as an artist and a successful, sustainable businessman.
Henigman has a lot of good, sound advice for artists trying to establish themselves and develop a fruitful business. â€œYou have to make it affordable,â€ he says. â€œGet more into art reproductions. Youâ€™ll make more money in the long run.â€ As for who is likely to pay more he goes on to point out that companies and businesses frequently pay better than individuals.
â€œIâ€™m more aware now of what the market wants,â€ says long time artist Jinx. Itâ€™s taken many years but Jinx is now focused on a major project that has the elements she hopes will make her work and talent attractive to the marketplace.
The new body of work that Jinx is currently developing represents what a lot of artists are tuned in to. A full portfolio that reflects a focused theme is something an artist can go to galleries with.
After a career in art that began when she was a child she has more recently been able to focus her ideas for more effect. â€œIn school they donâ€™t teach you what the market wants,â€ she says. â€œNothing about the art business at all.â€ But Jinx has keen thoughts about the local Los Angeles art market. She points out that $20 prints are more sellable than something going for $500.

â€œThink of art as a beautiful thing.â€ What words could be any more inspiring coming from a true artist? Kermit Frazier, long-time metal worker and artist, has a vision for the direction of the artwork that he does and the potential market for his work.
Frazier realizes the value of his work and what it has to offer potential buyers. He has been metal working for decades and he put that talent to use as an artist completing an exceptional full-scale, dimensional sculpture of a winged human skeleton. And itâ€™s the quality of the workmanship, the quality of the materials and the vision for a top quality product based on months of planning that makes his work superior to that of other shops heâ€™s seen that churn out high volumes of metal sculptures that fall apart within years of being sold.
