Glimpses of Recent Sales at Xanadu Gallery
Summer & Fall, 2015

2015 is on track to our best year ever for sales. The steadily improving economy, our ever-growing base of collectors and our expansion into a second gallery space, have all contributed to great sales this year.

From time to time, I like to post images of recent sales. It’s fun to see work that has caught our buyer’s attention, and it’s a good reminder that art is selling – something that is easy to forget if your sales have been a bit slow.

It’s important to remember that this is not a reflection of trends in the broader market, and I hope no one will look at this artwork and say “I guess I better paint abstracts, because that’s what Xanadu is selling.” You will see a pretty broad range of styles and subject matter, but it is a reflection of our focus over the last several months. This sampling of some of our recent sales reflects a combination of in-gallery sales, online sales and sales from our Art Catalogue.

It’s also fun to see where some of our buyers are coming from (We’ve also had buyers from Canada, Germany, and England):

  1. Jason, What a nice service this is to your artists and to your collectors! It was a treat to look through all the art that has sold. Thank you — and congratulations on a successful year!

  2. Wow, a lot of sculptures sold…love the bronze artist painting and kids twirling other kids. All beautiful work! Very interesting to see some of the art in the collectors home and where the collector displayed it!

  3. I’m honored to be a part of Xanadu’s success. I couldn’t be more grateful for all you do to help countless artists realize their dreams. Thank you for your diligent support 🙂

  4. Well done Jason! Looks like Xanadu has done well. That’s interesting how well sculptures have done. Vibrant colour also seems to have been popular. It’s been a good year here too. Lots of sales, commissions and a huge amount of work. From appearing on national television, magazine articles, all workshops sold out early and an invite to appear on television in the US. I can’t say I’m disappointed with 2015 at all! It already looks like 2016 is going to be just as busy.

  5. Thanks, Jason, for a glimpse of the Xanadu Gallery successful sales. It is obvious that a nice variety of work appeals to your collectors. With the opening of Xanadu 2, I’m hoping that your success will double. Let me know how I can help, please.

  6. Hi Jason,

    It’s always interesting to see what you sell…very informative. I’ve sold 5 pieces since Oct 1st and several with some serious interest. I think the economy is getting better.

  7. I would say that when it’s all calculated I will be down a bit overall, but having been hit by illness for about 3 months I would say I’ve had better sales for the time invested. I’m in the process of retooling and I’m excited about 2016.

  8. I’ve always wanted to see from galleries, like XANADU, what art sells. What’s wonderful is that it’s diverse in theme and medium. The only similarity is the excellent quality and craftsmanship.
