03 THE STUDIO DOOR


With weeks of remodeling completed at The Studio Door, my ‘free time’ has opened up to more fully engage with the greater arts community and begin to expand our Art-to-Market programming. There is nothing like the exhilaration one feels when experiencing art, talking about the possibilities and discovering new opportunities. As I meet with fellow artists, I often am asked what is ‘Art-to-Market’ and why does The Studio Door focus on it. Let me take a moment to try and break that down. When I look at my own experiences and the artist marketplace, it seems that passion and talent aren’t enough for artists to succeed. Just as technology has turned us into life-long learners, today’s career artist needs to embrace becoming a savvy entrepreneur. As a professional artist, you need to consider the following: • who am I, as an artist • what makes my work unique and stand out from other artists • who does my work appeal to • where does my potential patrons seek out art • how can I better identify potential opportunities to create diverse revenue streams • how do I build community and engage with a network of artists • what technologies should I use to market my artwork The process of moving from the act of creation to selling your art is literally the path of Art > to > Market. It’s my passion to have The Studio Door be a community space for San Diego artists to develop those skill sets through workshops, classes, exhibition and networking. The Studio Door is an incubator that offers connections to people and ideas, in addition to a working artist and exhibition space. All of the artists currently participating at The Studio Door share in the belief that they can be true to their creative voice and make a living at their passion. As seen through the eyes of an artist, The Studio Door programming seeks to offer you a basic understanding of marketing, branding, revenue generation and sales techniques. Naturally, you are welcome to come by anytime to learn more about the opportunities that we have. Whether or not you call this place home, if you want to be a professional be bold, be true to your unique voice and don’t give up. Its your life and your career. Own it! Throughout August, The Studio Door is filled with opportunities. Take a look to see how we can help you become the professional that you want to be.

I envision a painting in almost everything I see. Adding drama and mystery through the use of powerful lighting effects, reflected surfaces, exaggerated contrasts and unusual compositions, I strive to transform simple everyday life into un-ordinary, not-so-still life. I like to take an ordinary subject and enhance the perception of it, invite the viewer to take a closer look. If you look closer, you may discover something new about yourself. I love how the medium takes command. The artist starts the process, but the paint takes charge and leads the work to a sometimes unintended outcome. It’s always exhilarating.

GARY PATERSON

I am a self-taught painter – which in my definition means that I followed the classic method of close study of the masters of art. While adapting the work of Matisse, to pick one example, to my own style, I learned not only about his ideas, techniques, and color use, but also how to make my own ideas work. The geometric basis of my work is derived from either textile patterns (primarily needlepoint and quilting) or the decorative concrete blocks used in Mid-century architecture. I value the textile connection to my family’s creativity, as expressed for generations by female family members, and concrete block privacy walls in Palm Springs are a continual inspiration. The patterning coming from needlepoint and concrete blocks has a surprising similarity. The images seen “through” these patterns vary widely, but all of my paintings are meant to be – well, FUN! Titles and subjects are meant to be descriptive and humorous. Theoretic concerns, like the interplay of detail on the surface versus the depth created by images and color value differences, are serious – but also a lot of visual fun. I pay particularly close attention to color and color values. I was born in upstate New York and have lived in Illinois, Massachusetts and California (in the Bay Area and Palm Springs). While I have always painted, periods of full-time painting were necessarily sandwiched between jobs - in retail (California College of Arts & Crafts, department stores), advertising (advertising agencies, Macy’s), web printing (sales), and in event coordination (Palm Springs Art Museum). I have been painting full-time since 2012.

Ex-Starving Artist Teaches Local Artists to Prosper as Professionals

Professional Artist Crystal Daigle offers series of Art-to-Market workshops at The Studio Door

CRYSTAL DAIGLE Saturday workshops for artists featuring successful DIY Crowd Funding and playful sales techniques are being offered by professional artist Crystal Daigle throughout the summer months at The Studio Door in North Park. Frustrated with the cultural belief that artists should give away their work, time and energy for free; Crystal changed the approach that she takes as a professional artist and now teaches other artists to have a prosperous approach, too. Her workshop material comes from her 30 years of personal experience, including being awarded an $18,000 grant to develop her art business and a successful crowd funding campaign she ran for her project “PUSH DOWN & TANGO” in 2014. Beyond raising thousands of dollars for the project, Crystal organized 120 backers, makers and community business partners to create a unique, loving tribute to survivors of serious illnesses in Tempe, Arizona. 120 Resiliency Roses made of fabric radiate above leaves made of 150 pill bottles, covered in photographs of Tango dancers. Backers sponsored the roses in honor of their resilient loved ones, whose names were hand lettered into the artwork. “PUSH DOWN & TANGO” was publicly exhibited for four months in Tempe’s Post Office storefront window in the heart of that city. Projects such as “PUSH DOWN & TANGO” clearly inform her series of workshops. “I breakdown the complicated process of Crowd Funding into manageable pieces and that’s really gratifying to me because Crowd Funding is very democratic, anyone can do it! If you know 50 people who will support you at $20 each, you can raise $1000 for your creative project rather than funding it yourself. And since you give supporters meaningful rewards, everyone wins.” said Crystal Daigle. “I want artists to get a paycheck, so I am teaching them how to have a successful studio sale and tell stories about their art as a way of selling."
