We’re artists who have built lives doing what we love. So, when we won a community grant, we decided to use the funds to help others get here, too. That’s how The Artist Show Podcast started.

We chose to create a podcast because it makes the possibility of remotely listening in on the interviews of some of the most talented artists out there, that much more accessible.

Gaining knowledge is the first step to wisdom. Sharing it, is the first step to humanity.

Our Mission

We’re changing the narrative from Starving Artist to Thriving Artist. We’ve learned that artistic talent is just one part of the equation. The other parts are business and marketing. We also know that equipping the next wave of artists will only make the industry that we work and play in, that much better. So, welcome to our little movement, where we hope to make a career in the arts more possible, one conversation at a time.

Without art, the crudeness of reality would make the world unbearable.
— George Bernard Shaw

Being a talented artist is one thing, creating a business around your art is another. That’s why, with every artist we speak to on the show, we don’t just limit the conversation to talent and technique- we make it a point to cover every aspect of artpreneurship, including:

  • The transparent stories of artists who have ‘made it’

  • How-to: get press, market art, build an audience, change careers to become an artist

  • The business of art: networking, pricing, gallery representation, artist residencies

  • Creating art, exhibiting art, selling art

  • Tips and resources on how to build an art business

  • Formal education in the arts vs. self taught and building credibility
