19/02/11: VAI Research Used in New publication


In The Irish Times of Saturday, February 19th, Jane Humphries reviewed the new publication:  ART HISTORY: Movers and Shapers 3: Conversations in the Irish Art World, By Vera Ryan, and published by Galley Head Press

In the article the following VAI research was mentioned as significant:

“If the number of artists has also been increasing, it is sobering to read that a survey carried out by Visual Artists Ireland in 2008 found that 67% of artists earn less than €10,000 a year with women artists earning less than men. Ryan cautions that creative expression is threatened if too much time is spent out of the creative environment. A lot rests on the shoulders of those distributing public funding, future movers and shapers, if good art is to survive.”
