Several weeks ago I blogged about the importance of artistic consistency from a gallery owner’s perspective. The post generated a lot of discussion from a variety of perspectives (just take a look at the comments). I appreciated all of the comments, especially those that challenged my advice.
I also received innumerable emails from artists asking, “could you take a look at my work and tell me if I am consistent?” While I was able to respond to a few of these requests, my busy schedule prevented me from replying to more than a small percentage of the total requests received.
From these emails I could see that there is room for additional discussion about what it means to be “consistent”. Instead of responding individually or writing a post, I feel that the most effective forum for this discussion will be a broadcast. I invite you to join me for a live broadcast on consistency Tuesday, September 4th, 2011 from 4:00-5:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time for the discussion. This will be an interactive forum where you can listen to my presentation and then ask questions live via your computer or telephone.
Submit your Art for a Review of Consistency
If you are willing to brave the critique, submit your art to me for possible review and feedback about your consistency during the broadcast. Please follow these instructions carefully to submit images of your art – artwork submitted in any other way or not following these instructions will not be reviewed.
Share up to 4 photos of your work on my Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/jason.horejs (be sure and like my page while you are there). Sharing photos on the page is easy, simply click on the photo/video button, then click on the upload photo/video link. Type the title, size, medium and price into the comment. You must be signed in to your Facebook account in order to post the images.
Ask a Question

Can’t attend live? Sign up anyway! We will be recording the session and anyone who signs up will receive a download of the broadcast. By signing up you will receive reminders of the start time for the broadcast – just ignore them – it’s not problem if you can’t actually attend, you’ll still get the recording.

6:00 p.m. Central
