artists are you...

are you looking for someplace to sell your work? do you sell your work on commission or wholesale? where do you sell your art? do you invest in art shows? are you in a co-op gallery or other retail establishment where you have to work so many hours a week? these are just some questions i have been pondering lately.


i guess some answers for me are yes i amlooking to sell my art work someplace, i have it in several small gift/galleries across Michigan but i want to expand. how do i do this? i usually go door to door locally but not over a hours drive...


i sell my work on commission and wholesale but i would like to do more volume but not to have it commerically made somewhere else...does that make sense? sure greeting cards would be great to sell commerically but i am not sure i want to do that with anything else


i haven't done art shows in quite a while but i have been pondering doing a few locally to build up some customers, mailing list, etc.


as far as working in a gallery so many hours a week, unless they have a high volume of traffic i am not interested because my time can be better spent creating art then sitting around waiting for customers to come in the door...i have started with 2 of these type of galleries in the past and there is never enough traffic to make it worth my time.


well if you are reading this leave me a comment on what you are doing to promote yourself...next time i will talk about writing an artist statement. do you have one?
