Purchasing original art is an intimidating prospect for many. Where do you go to buy it? What’s a fair price? Will it look good in my home? Where is the best place to hang it? How do I hang it? I have a great little anecdote that answers all of those questions in the context of JWV Artists. May I share with you… ‘THE STORY OF ERIN’…a JWV Artists success story.
I invited Erin to the JWV Artists Fall Show. She told me that she probably wouldn’t be able to make it, so I was surprised when she showed up bright an early the first morning. She brought her camera filled with pictures of her lovely home and existing art collection, as well as potential art spaces. After walking through my home gallery for an hour, she pulled me aside and told me that she liked three pieces in particular, but she didn’t know where they might work in her home. We looked through her catalogue of pictures and I was able to help her envision repositioning her existing art and capitalizing on the WOW factor of the fabulous pieces she had selected. We loaded the art into her car and she took the pieces home on loan with the understanding that I would meet her at her house after the show that day to help her with this process.
When I arrived, she’d already hung one painting herself and I could tell by the smile on her face that she was thrilled with the change in the light and energy of the room. I helped her reposition her artwork and found the perfect spots for the remaining two paintings. All that was left was to show them to her husband and make sure he loved them as much as she did. After a weekend of enjoying the pieces in her space, she called and told me they wanted to keep all three paintings, but she was very nervous about hanging them. I let her know that when you buy artwork from JWV Artists, installation is FREE! So I drove over the next day and hung her new paintings, as well as her existing pieces. Everything looked amazing and I could tell that she understood the impact original art can make in your home.
JWV Artists is a full-service gallery. As I sell from my home, I am able to keep overhead to a minimum and pass that savings along to my clients. My in-home consultations are very reasonably priced and applied towards any future purchases. Consultations and Installations are FREE with the purchase of artwork.
