More Interesting Tidbits From Art Biz Blog - Quadrupling Art Sales Accidently

I follow Art Biz Blog and am always finding great information, for site and support from the posts.

The most recent post is a guest blogger Rani Garner and she shares her story about how, quite by accident on vacation, she wandered into an art gallery, struck up a conversation with the owner, well and the rest is history.  Take a peak for yourself and see what Rani wrote about here!

This post got me thinking about how I started selling in stores, the anxiety that sometimes would try to overtake me, being afraid to talk to anyone about my work, the fear of rejection - you know the drill. Looking back, I have been in several stores, shown in galleries, published in magazines, used in run way shows - all because I asked.

Don't get me wrong, it wasn't easy, and still today, I get a bit of the 'nerves' when I approach a new store or venue for my jewelry - but I am always looking. I am always on the lookout for a new boutique or gallery while I am out driving around doing my dailies. Cruising ads for artists and events, and google searching for 'call for artists'.

Thinking about all of this when I read this post made me curious - what do you do? How do you approach stores or galleries with your art? I would sure love to know!
