20 Under 40: Artist Chuck Dayton finds he has knack for the art of finance

Helping others reach their dream

He said he was surprised being selected as one of the 20 Under 40 honorees.

“I was caught off-guard,” Dayton said. “Every year I look forward to the announcement and to see who was named, and I looked up to those people because it takes time to get ahead in business and climb the ladder and get that kind of recognition. I thought it would be cool to be one, but I never imagined I would be. Getting the call that I was one was the coolest thing.”

He said the pandemic has resulted in constant changes in the business, many of them making the process more intense and labor intensive. The threat of layoffs has resulted in some people getting their dream of owning a house pulled out from under them at the last minute.

“The stress motivates me and keeps me on my toes to be ready for whatever comes my way.”

He and his partner Justin, a real estate agent, married in Canada in 2005. Dayton said they occasionally refer clients to each other but try to avoid that. Justin did serve as their real estate agent when they bought their own house.

“I’m really happy where I am,” Dayton said. “I get so much satisfaction from the job, and I can’t think of any other thing I could do to get that. I can’t think of another career where I would get the same sense of fulfillment.”

In the latter cases, art gadgets may be called archeological artifacts. Surviving art from this era comprises small carvings in stone or bone and cave painting. The first traces of human-made gadgets appeared in southern Africa, the Western Mediterranean, Central and Eastern Europe Adriatic Sea, Siberia Baikal Lake, India, and Australia.

How to Show Art Work when the Gallery Says No Thanks

There are places in the town where you live where you can show your artwork when the big gallery you solicited said, "No, thanks." Other artists may need to find venues other than galleries to show their artworks as well. Visual artists living in art-rich communities where there is a lot of local competition will need to get creative about display opportunities. Or on the other hand, in towns without large art venues, it is important for artists to find smaller and less obvious places to show your art. How to Show Art Work When The Gallery Says No Thanks 1. Show Where You Go The most successful approach to finding a place in your town to display your artwork is to solicit a place that you go to frequently.
