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.
