Vincent Van Gogh is said to have only sold two paintings in his lifetime. Emily Carr sold her pottery at craft sales, and often traded her paintings for art supplies. Fine art can be a tough sell. Why? Often because many people believe that original art is beyond their means. The truth is that affordable art is all around us. Emerging artists especially, offer reasonably priced work, often for less than mass produced prints at the mall.
Local art and artisan sales allow you to buy directly from the person who made the piece. You have the benefit of meeting the artist, hearing the story behind the art, and enjoying the thrill of owning something that is truly one of a kind. Selling art also gives artists more than just an income, it is a validation their work is appreciated by others.
