In today's uncertain economy the love and desire for art remains at
the hearts of collectors, decorators, and pure lovers of the arts.
Artist's have recognized the "Need for Change" to remain fluid
within the Visual Art Industry and when exhibiting at annual art events.
They simply modify their art works, via downsizing and
creating Small and Mini art pieces, resulting in lower pricing.
Smaller paintings sell for less money, but they don't take less skill
Exhibiting Small Art
are painting larger size formats (16" x 20" and larger) but
are also offering smaller paintings ( 8" x 10", or even as small as
5” x 7”) to be more affordable to a wider cross section of buyers.
To cite an example of how good small paintings sell, a regional
watercolor artist participated in a prior year Holiday show
where the maximum allowable size is 8" x 10", and its normally
attended by local and regional artists.
The show is a sell-out nearly every year without fail! Also, they sell
a few of the larger paintings because the customers will buy the
small works to give as gifts, and buy the larger ones for
themselves, so it's a great ‘appetizer’ to get buyers into the
annual event !”
