Taxes for Artists

One of the biggest hurdles artists have wrestle with every single year is filing their taxes. Between choosing which Schedule to fill out, how many qualified deductions one can make, and deciding if ones studio practice is a bona fide business, artists make many common mistakes when reporting to Uncle Sam.

Hamiltonian Artists Board Member Richard Kamenitzer, Executive Director of the International Center for the Management of Arts & Culture, Program Director and Professor of Arts Management at George Mason University, College of Visual & Performing Arts, will help clarify the different avenues artists can take when administrating the business of their art and speak about:

  • Fact vs.Fiction
  • Record keeping
  • What is required to be declared income and what is deductible expense, including the "home studio"

The talk will begin promptly at 7pm at Hamiltonian Gallery, on Wednesday, February 3, 2010. Please RSVP to Jacqueline Ionita, Director of Hamiltonian Gallery, and for all other related inquiries. jackie@hamiltoniangallery.com, 202.332.1116

Please DO come prepared with questions that will help you understand the tax process for artists!

Please DO NOT come with your W2's, as we are not preparing your taxes!

The creativity does not end on the runway – fashion designers of all skill levels may submit proposals for cutstom T-shirt and/or jean designs. All submissions will be presented on the Crystal City BID Web site and through digital projection at the event. Audience members will vote on a winner – on Tuesday night, voting for the T-shirt design will take place and on Wednesday, voting for the jean design will occur. Prizes will be awarded.

Local non-profit groups will also be on site to collect donations of new or gently used clothing and footwear. Go Red for Women will also have a presence at the event.

Spooky art space under Dupont Circle

Image: "Old Entrance" by M.V. Jantzen

It would be so cool to have an avant garde art space underneath Dupont Circle, in the old trolley tunnels. There was a failed food court down there years ago, and after years of legal wrangling, the city is finally ready to consider some proposals to bring it back to life. Pink Line Project has joined the Arts Coalition for Dupont Underground to submit a proposal that would activate the space in a way that would put DC in a prominent position on the cultural landscape. A bunch of us took a little tour of the space yesterday morning and came away spooked and inspired. More about Dupont Underground HERE.

And Now: Your 2010 DCist Exposed Photography Show Winners

From DCist:

We love judging the DCist Exposed contest. We already see every day how talented our regular contributors are, so you might imagine how much we look forward to this annual "best of" pool -- and how hard it is to pick just a handful to showcase in our annual show. If you have a couple hours free, head over to the pool and hit "slideshow" in the upper right to see all of the 2010 entries.

In this fourth year of Exposed, you broke records again, ending the contest with 1130 photos from 435 photographers -- that's almost 400 more entries than last year. We added a few judges to our panel this year to handle all the entries and debate over which phenomenal images would make it in the show, so let me thank DCist contributors Kyle Gustafson, Lynne Venart, Ian Buckwalter, James Calder, Meaghan Gay, and Samer Farha, along with Long View Gallery owner Drew Porterfield for spending their entire weekend judging the entries to bring you the 2010 DCist Exposed Photography Show winners.

We'll have more details about the opening when we get closer to go-time; for now, just make sure your calendar is marked for March 6 to join us at Long View, and we'll move right to the good stuff.

Check out this year's winners!

Attention Visual Artists!

DC Advocates for the Arts wants to let visual artists know about an issue their are currently pursuing.

Since July 2001, DC has had no provision that pertains to artist/gallery transactions involving works of art. In the absence of a statute, works of art owned by artists but in the possession of galleries (e.g., loaned for exhibition or otherwise in a gallery's inventory) can be seized by creditors of the gallery if a gallery goes bankrupt. There have been several recent high profile cases where artists, collectors, and estates of artists have been screwed by this.

DC used to have such a law (DC Code Section 28:9-114), but this section was omitted when the new Uniform Commercial Code Secured Transactions Revision Act of 2000 was adopted.

Over two dozen states currently have statutes that govern consignments of works of art with galleries. Several more are working on them. We are working with a lawyer, who is working with councilmember Cheh, and we have a draft of a bill that would fix this loophole. But we see this as a chance to educate visual artists also about what they need to do to protect themselves.

For more info check out DC Advocates for the Arts.

DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities announces 2010 Grantees!

$7.25 million invested to support arts in the District

Washington, D.C. – Tuesday, January 12, 2010, The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH) is pleased to announce its FY 2010 grantees. In total, the Commission will distribute $7.25 million. This includes support to 18 organizations who received funding through our American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. From our 9 special events, artist resource partnerships, public art project, and 16 grant programs we are proud to issue 515 grants to support artists and organizations in the District.

“This is the time that we get to thank our artists and organizations that enhance the quality of life in the District. The works produced will impact 45,000 youth through arts education programming, provide iconic public art displays, as well as contributing to our city’s growing creative economy. This year we goal to raise the profile of these grantees, both individual artists and arts organizations” says DCCAH Executive Director Gloria Nauden.

The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities received about 900 grant applications - a 55% increase across all grant programs from last year. This increase can partly be attributed to the Commission’s targeted outreach efforts, revamping our monthly ArtNewsLetter, producing a monthly gathering of creatives called Art Salon, implementing a viral marketing arm, and building upon our relationships with partner organizations.

“These grantees represent the strength of the creative community in our city and I am honored to celebrate their achievement,” said Mayor Adrian M. Fenty. “This investment in the city's arts community plays a vital role in the District’s transformation into a world-class city.”

For a full listing of our 2010 Grantees go to click here.

The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, which is in the cluster of DC’s Office of Planning and Economic Development, provides grants, programs and educational activities that encourage diverse artistic expressions and learning opportunities, so that all District of Columbia residents and visitors can experience the rich culture of our city.
