  1. I’ve just started mailing out my new Nice Art postcards so I hope these elusive Collectors
    start Buying! Look forward to the talk cuz you can never have enough eager Collectors!

    Cheers + Peace! Billy 😉

  2. My husband owns a frame shop and gallery outside Seattle and so far, artists have been from the Pacific NW area. At this point, the gallery aspect is a constant loss, because even if the art is affordable and high quality, it is NOT moving. In order to avoid closing the gallery and shop, we need a major shift. It would be great to match collectors with art, and find more artists who have collectors! We are going to revamp the website, so it would be great if you include a little about that too.
    I don’t know how to find the collectors who are out there. I’ve started posting photos of works along with artist name, medium, price, and size of the work, on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest, but need more tips beyond using #artcollector in my posts. Would partnerships with interior designers be one way to go? Looking forward to some tips! thanks.

  3. I have registered for a booth in both outdoor art shows and juried art shows both outdoors and in galleries. Which do you prefer to get the clients buying your artwork?

  4. Is there a secret to getting clients to visit your 10 x 10 tent? I try to engage them and smile a lot. I have some of my large 36 x 40 canvases hanging so that they can see them without having to come into my tent, to draw their interest.

  5. Looking forward to the broadcast. I have collectors that purchase, but feel they are becoming saturated with my art. Finding new clients / collectors / patrons is one area that is changing all the time. Hearing you guys talk about the best ways to get work in front of them will be interesting. My question is probably how often to contact the prospective client when they have not purchased anything yet? My work is very traditional and it seems to not be as popular as the more “contemporary” look. I am in three physical galleries, participate in shows and events, send occasional newsletters, have a blog, use Facebook, Pinterest, Etsy, Dailypaintworks, FineArtAmerica, among a few others … and your online site at Xanadu Gallery which I don’t seem to get around to updating often. All these take time… and needing to figure out where to really spend the time is critical. Sorry for the long comment.

  6. What about starting your own gallery featuring your work or a co-op gallery that you can rent wall space and still show your work, do work shops, etc. I haven’t done any research of what such a venture would cost, but I’ve know of artist who have done such things, but their budgets are pretty tight.

  7. Thank you for another great broadcast! I have made a note of the book for introverts that Mr. Davey mentioned, and am planning to take Mr. Horejs’ advice about going to more art shows so I can learn a bit more about the experience. There is a local show this Saturday that I have already put on the calendar. Thank you for reminding me that it is easier to sell to people already in your circles; I had forgotten to pay attention to “low-hanging fruit”, as I learned to call it. And some good news: I found out just today that, if all goes well, a gallery located in a historic hotspot area here in NJ is interested in doing a live show of my work early next year. This will be my first live show!
