I’m new to selling art.
As a self-taught ’emerging’ artist, the usual channels to build a profile and sell work aren’t available to me. Most competitions and art fairs for emerging artists require the entrants have completed academic study in the arts (I studied business) or be in the final stages of post-graduate study.
So for me, the oppourtunity to show work the Albert Park College Art Show was invaluable. I’d encourage other Melbourne artists to take a peek: http://www.albertparkcollege.vic.edu.au/artshow/index.html
The work was incredible this year, I was thrilled to be accepted and overall received some very positive feedback. My downfall is always ensuring I have quality images to document my work, here are a few happy snaps of the piece that was snapped up…thank you new owner, I hope it makes a nice new talking point in the home.
