About a month ago I in an art exhibit with other artists, and of course with an art exhibit you have an artist reception. The artist reception had a huge turnout and that included the artists and the guests which was about four thousand people that night. Well when it was all said and done, the facility wanted all the artists to pick up their work within the next 2 days. I realized that the piece I had did not sell and of course I was kinda disappionted, but hey, I had an opportunity to show my work. Well when I got up to the front to get my art work checked for pickup, there was this one particular artist that was in front of me who was so surprised that his artwork did not sell. So with that in mind, he went on to talk about how they should have put the prices on the paintings and because they didn't do so, his painting did not sell. Then he went on about how other galleries do the same and they said how galleries would not prefer to put prices on artwork because of this and that. The man went on an on about what they should have done or not done because his painting did not sell.
Well I'm sorry to say but I think if your art doesn't sell a one show then just suck it up and move on to what's next. Don't blame others for the why your artwork didn't sell. It could be so many reasons why. I'm learning that just because you run in to art collectors doesn't mean they will buy or even like the type of artwork you have. You won't always sell your art at an artshow unless it you are hosting an artshow of your own. I just feel that you should just move on and get over it! Move on to the next opportunity and keep your head up! And just because your work doesn't sell doesn't mean that your art isn't good, it could just mean you may not have what they need at that time.
Keep painting and paint with all your heart!
