They Really Make Money from their Art?

Did you know that one of the biggest struggles that artists face is making their art an actual career?

When we meet artists, immediately one of the first things that we think of is, really? How can this person really be making a living off of their art? For the majority of artists, their biggest challenge is to be creative and be a business person.

One of the ways that we like to help artists make a living is to help them sell art. When you visit our show or follow our social media, you’ll see that we love to share and post art for sale from our vendors. At the event itself, we also have a silent auction and when you bid on the art from the auction, the artist receives 50% of the sale. Some sales are big, some smaller, but each sale of art in the auction supports the artisans in our event.
