I am going to an art market this weekend, hope to get some costumers:) In our country this art markets are very popular right now, it is good not just for selling artworks but to meet other artists.

Where is your art market?

I plan on going to a down town area next time and selling. Its much more classy and will bring more artistic clients/ buyers and ts a great way to make contacts and see how people react to your art! And Its a learning experience.

Yes it is a great experience. I am from Europe, so that doesn't help you a lot, right? :)
I expect your feedback how was it:)

Well yeah i suppose art in Europe is a big deal! Never been but i suppose you all are more artistically advanced than the US :P

Is this your first one or do you go to these things often.

As an artist, half of the work is marketing yourself.

Oohh yes i had forgotten about the other thread u created this one and put a side note but yes i sold two paintings! And am planning another trip but instead of the flea market Im aiming a little higher in a Down town area actually surrounded by local galleries that way Im able to sell my art for a more reasonable price. I am more excited about this one because its a different level of exposure. But i did get a lot of great feedback on my art and made a few contacts for a couple of requests. It was a learning experience and found many ways i can improve also!

I don't know if we are advanced or not, but at this time I notice a boost of home-craft business. Because of the low employment situation many people try to do their best at home and create different pieces of art (paintings, jewlery, sewing ect.) and then sell it on art markets. But I wouldn't say that sales are so successful that you could make a living of it. Maybe for few individuals.

 

Posted by: Kiara Reynolds on 05/09/2013 - 2:34 AM

True never know til you go out there. May not make a lot but I think its an experience worth having as far as making a name for yourself, creating contacts, n getting personal exposure.

 

Posted by: Home Art on 05/10/2013 - 2:22 AM

I agree:) can't wait tomorrow!

 

Posted by: Home Art on 05/12/2013 - 2:23 AM

Well I went to an art fair, it was nice, because of the rain there were no lots of visitors, I didn't sell much but I met lots of other srtists, it was really really great. We exchanged our experiences and talked about our art work. Was really fun!
