  Alliance of Artists Communities

A page of links to the organizational members of the AAC. Ninety-five percent of these have appeared in Art Opportunities Monthly, but if you are interested in pursuing a residency, here is a good place to find all the links together.

Alliance of Artists Communities 
  Selling Out

A personal observation: artists whose work sells well to "the public" are usually not "painting down" to the public, no matter what they claim; they tend to have approximately the same taste as their buyers, although they may have more education.

The corollary is that artists who honestly try to paint down in order to make their work sell usually don't do a good job of either. In short, they are wasting their time, time better spent developing their own way of seeing and presenting the world. Even if that doesn't result in more income, which it could, they will be making a contribution to humanity and to themselves. 
  Imperfect Practice Makes Imperfect

There is a right and wrong way to do everything, and it is always a revelation
to find fully grown people continually making the same mistakes, never having
observed closely enough to copy the expert craftsman who has found the best
method by long experience.
~Malvina Hoffman, _Sculpture Inside and Out,_ 1939
