We all are looking for the next exciting activity. Oftentimes fun excursions are right beneath our noses! There's often a lot of pressure surrounding art gallery exhibitions, but they don't have to be stressful! If you have ever been to a modern art show, you know they can be a fun way to have snacks, enjoy great artwork, and make new friends! With summer just around the corner, now is a great time to add new fine arts to your collection. Whether your goal is to freshen up your home decor, or simply enjoy the vibes, here are three easy ways to prep for summertime as an art buyer:
1) Look for upcoming art fairs & exhibitions
Art shows are happening all the time across the world, but Summertime is an especially popular season for art fairs & exhibitions to take place (both in-person & online) because of the beautiful weather. Be sure to jot down any events that catch your eye and add them to your calendar so you don't miss them! Attending art fairs and exhibitions is a great way to discover new artists, connect with friends, and find pieces that fit your style & budget. Visiting shows are also perfect for those who want to stay up to date with their favorites artists' endeavors.
2) Set a Budget / Make a Wish-List
Before you start shopping for art, it's always helpful to set a budget and make a wish-list. It is important to identify pieces you're interested in, or artists you want to support beforehand. With one less thing to worry about, this crucial step makes enjoying the actual art so much easier. This will also help you stay focused and avoid overspending. Keep in mind that summertime is a popular time for art sales, so be on the lookout for deals and promotions. Your favorite piece might be a fellow collectors favorite piece, so if you really want a specific artwork, it's helps to be decisive!
3) Make it Summer-Themed
Summer is all about sunshine, warmth, and outdoor fun. Consider adding some summer-themed artwork to your collection to capture the spirit of the season. This could be anything from sand artifacts to glowing totem sculptures. Don't be afraid to experiment with unique materials and playful moods when adding artwork to your collection. Oftentimes new experiences can be the most rewarding...
In conclusion, summer is a great time to meet an artist and add new artwork to your collection. Look for upcoming events, set a budget / make a wish list, and consider adding summer-themed artwork to make the most of this exciting season.
