Visual Arts: Solo Shows, 1990-1964

"Despite the importance of one person shows for artist, dealer and the community, your long-range goals need more than a annual one person shows. I do not like the idea that an artist works for shows, except when shows create helpful deadlines." - Bill Ritchie, Author of The Art of Selling Art.

Visual Arts Exhibitions: Group Shows: 1992-1963

"For some people, shows and exhibits are validation and a way to establish higher authority. Art schools have a marketing and selling job to do, too. They qualify their guarantees to provide outstanding art teachers by shows and prizes they have. Sales are secondary. In reading art magazines, newspaper reviews, advertisements and announcements, can you tell when the intent is to sell and when the intent is to validate?" Bill Ritchie. The Art of Selling Art

"In this day of TV, movies, records and magazines, instantaneous communication and travel, the majority of people refuse to accept the validity of the print as an object of art because more than one exists. Such prejudice is an unwillingness to think beyond the times when art was thought to belong only in museums, palaces and cathedrals.... Art belongs where people are-where it can be seen and experienced naturally, easily and often ... Solution? The Print" (Excerpt from article by David Mendoza, 1969 Director of Richard White Gallery. Read The Print Hang-up written during prints exhibit by Ritchie--also Leo Kenney, Steve Hazel, Kathleen Rabel, Charles Stokes, and Keith Achepohl.)
