As artists it’s a wonderful moment when a piece we’ve created touches a person so much they decide to take it home. Every day we talk with people who love art and want to start or add to their art collection. Our goal is to help that happen. Here are the most common roadblocks to purchasing we hear:

1. “We can’t afford it”
2. “We don’t have room”
3. “We don’t have enough experience buying art to trust our judgment”

In the next few newsletters we will talk about some solutions to art-buying roadblocks—starting with #1.
Art may be a luxury, but to quote an art-lover, “what would we do without art that makes the heart sing?

We are now offering a Patron Program along with standard lay-away. The Patron Program works like a savings account. A set amount is put in a fund every month until enough is saved to purchase. Along the way the “patron” might settle on a specific artists work, learn more about their approach, see art in progress and more. Stay tuned to hear more about this innovative program.

There are other affordable ways to start an art collection:
•Buy small pieces—they’re like little jewels. When you have a few, group them for more impact. Buy from a variety of artists for an eclectic look.

•Consider Giclee’s—Limited Edition, signed and numbered fine art reproductions are very high-quality. Many of our artists have giclee’s available.
