The Mid-Career Artist:
An artist who has created an independent body of work over a number of years and who has received regional or national recognition through publication or public presentation of his or her work. A Mid-Career Artist has had a significant number of solo exhibitions at significant galleries and museums, located nationally or internationally, rather than locally.
Notice this category says nothing about age of the artist or even a specific number of years in their careers. Look again, because this is very specific. To be considered a mid-career artist, you must have recieved regional or national recognition through “Publication” or “Public Presentation” of your work. What does this mean? The publication part means that you have had significant publications about you and your work, most likely through a major museum or publishing house. Public presentation also indicates museum exhibitions, rather than just commercial galleries. Mid-Career Artists have established a national or international following and exhibit in many different states and countries, rather than in a local or regional area.
The Established Artist:
An artist who is at a mature stage in his or her career and who has created an extensive body of independent work. An established artist has reached an advanced level of achievement by sustaining a nationally or internationally recognized contribution to the discipline.
This type of artist is considered a ‘blue chip’ artist in the market. Their work’s value has been decided through consistent years of sales, and confirmed at auction. This is a catch-22: many artists and artist’s dealers don’t want to risk an auction sale at Christie’s or Sotheby’s because there is a chance the work could decline in value. Rather than putting it up for auction, many artist’s dealers will buy back the work, keeping the value consistent. Many artists remain in the “Mid-Career” category until after their deaths for this reason.
