Episode 40 - Preserving Relationships

Today’s episode is part of a series called “Nine Relationship Skills for Artists.” In the series we look at relationships skills that artists can nurture so as to become more effective advocates for their creative work and more comfortable players in the art marketplace. The series focuses on the relationship issues of visual artists but the lessons are directly translatable for creative and performing artists in every discipline and for creators in any walk of life. Today’s show, the fourth in the series, is called “Preserving Relationships.”

The episode begins this way:

“Sometimes it is distance that begins to wear relationships down; sometimes it is interpersonal difficulty; sometimes the demands of life seem to steal all our time and leave little time left for even family and friends, let alone our contacts in the marketplace. This is a large theme, preserving art relationships, and I want to focus on just one aspect of it: preserving your relationship with “difficult” marketplace players, folks who are important to your art life but whose relational style sets you on edge.”
