Use your Art Sales to leverage your own financial future and AIC can help.

By Paul Constable, Director March 5, 2017

START TODAY – FOR FREE!

As an independent artist you need to be creative when it comes to planning future income for you and your family. As you know income is derived from many sources to make up your living wage though commissions, art gallery sales, shows, grants and exhibition fees including a second job. So you might be able to sustain a fair living while you are younger, but most likely times are thinner than you would like. You work hard and are positively optimistic, but sometimes these efforts just turn into promises of 'exposure' and an 'experience' – we all know that too much.

So what is the alternative to secure your future?

As I mentioned 'Every Artist needs a Juke box' – I will explain.

Bill gets a Juke Box.

Years ago I met Bill, a small Ice Cream Parlor and Sandwich Shop owner. One day Bill bought a Juke Box and 4 decades of record albums (50's, 60's, 70's and 80's) and he installed it in the corner by the eating area. After a few months I asked him where he found the Wurlitzer and was it worth installing in the shop. At first Bill was a bit hesitant in answering, but he knew me, so he got a coffee and sat at my table while I ate my sandwich.

"Paul" he said, "do you see that restored Model 'T' in front of the shop?" I said "yes", I was admiring it when I came in today. "Well" said Bill, "I was able to finish the restoration on it because of the Juke Box. You see a lot of regulars come into the Ice Cream Shop and they plug the record machine with quarters they would otherwise leave in the drawer by the bed. They enjoy music of their choice during a meal or ice cream and off they go. No one asks for receipts, it's self managed and I change up the music every month. The biggest chore is to wipe the sticky fingerprints off the front of it each day. It's kind of like my retirement play money".

Wow! The light came on at that point. I thought to myself, I have to find my own version of a Juke Box.

The Artists in Canada Pension Plan – your Juke Box for life.

Returning a steady income doesn't have to be complicated or require a huge investment, just time and contributions when you have money. Flexibility is what SPP understands, but more important is that you contribute regularly, even a little bit throughout the year. You will also receive the tax benefits.

Artists in Canada will help contribute to your Pension Plan.

Coming shortly, Artists in Canada will be offering to help sell artist members art work - online - through our newly developed Art Sales Gallery. To qualify for this you need to sign up for the Pension Plan. Do it now, its free to sign up and you will be queued to start receiving contributions from art sales made on your behalf by Artists in Canada (Must be 18 – 71 years of age). See about how AIC will contribute to your pension and other details about the plan.

On behalf of Artists in Canada, I look forward to selling your art for you and putting money directly into your personal Artists in Canada Pension Plan.

Paul Constable, Director
