"Artists who try to go it alone often stop making their work. It’s just too difficult, and there’s so much business stuff to navigate that does not get taught in art school … When you’re in a group of artists, the camaraderie helps."

"Artists are becoming central to the art market, connecting with audiences directly, and cultivating collectors digitally. To ensure they are the ones shaping those market forces, working artists are starting to organize consistently around contact and skill exchanges, art-business education, and collaborative selling.

The Map is Growing

The Artist Federation joins together diverse local and regional chapters of self-organized artists who have chosen to determine their own destinies Members meet regularly to assist each other and collaborate. Federated under one banner (like a franchise), the organization is directed by its members. The Clark Hulings Fund for Visual Artists provides a common virtual platform, structural support, and thought leadership at a national level.
