Episode 033 – Supporting your fellow artists with respect and etiquette


Today’s episode focuses on how you can support your local artists by not only visiting them and supporting them at their shows, but to be sensitive of the time you spend with them in respect to their other guests.

I know many of us who have had shows, will know that the time spent with a collector can be a profitable and rewarding experience, and as much as we love family and friends to visiting us at shows, it’s critical that they understand that our time at the shows is not all glamour, it’s a lot of work. 

Now, I have been a fan of other people’s art and have attended many exhibits and exhibitions and I want to support. I don’t expect them to spend a lot of time talking with me but I do want them to know I’m there to support them. If there is a guestbook at the event I make sure to put my name in it and write something nice to let them know that I was there. If I do have the opportunity to see them, then I tell them briefly how I enjoyed  their show. But I also want them to know that I realize that they’re busy and simply just want them to know that I wish them the best. 

Sometimes when having an exhibit it’s always good to have an extra support person there, almost as if they were a “handler”. Someone that can keep you moving along if for some reason you get trapped into an in-depth conversation where you may not have an opportunity to break away. 

Now I don’t think that I’m being snarky saying this, but it is a reality. They can be  losing potential sales and relationship building with someone who may want to learn more and is ready to buy their work.
