Re: Should visual artists be paid for exhibitions?

While gallery shows in the USA don't usually pay an honorarium, outdoor sculpture loan programs usually DO. The honorariums are typically in the $500-$2,500 range. I like them.

Generally, in getting paid as an artist: You get what you settle for, as long as there is enough demand for what you are supplying.

There can be intangible benefits to some low-dollar shows/commissions/sales, but exhibiting for free "for exposure" is usually not very productive.
