Here's what I imagine happens in an art collector's brain when they decide they NEED to have that art in their lives:
... and the collage stopped them in their tracks. The husband loves maps, and he'd mentioned he would like "something more 3D" for this spot on the wall.
If you've been itching to take home original art, you're in good company. This weekend, the Seattle Art Fair returns for its fourth summer, drawing collectors and art galleries from around the world.
A few things to remember:
- Buy what you love (of course) and buy local if you can
- Your support makes it possible for the artist to make MORE art (and pay their bills)
- You can always pay for the work in installments -- just ask
One last thing: Wear comfortable shoes if you're going to the art fair. Wouldn't it be a shame if you had to leave your favorite new artwork at the booth/artist studio just because your poor feet couldn't support you for one more minute?
