Jon Manteau, Part 2, video

A subject many artists and others in the art world avoid is one that Jon and I think is important to talk about, selling art. How can serious artists be expected to continue to buy materials, rent studios, ship their work and the countless other costs associated with being an artist without making sales?

Teaching is one way some would respond. Jon does that too, he is an adjunct professor at Temple University. We met at a local diner where he talks about the ups and downs of teaching.

Another thing critical to artists is having an opportunity to exhibit their work. We taped the opening reception of the the Wind Challenge 2 Exhibitions at Fleisher Art Memorial, where Jon showed two very large paintings and a number of smaller works on paper and panel.
