Why do creative people work in silos?
In a bid to reach the innermost depth of your creativity, you may seclude yourself from the world when putting a new piece together. That’s understandable. But when you are finished with your work of art, the best way it reaches its potential is when you share it with the world.
So, whether you are a painter, a sculptor or an artist of any form, the best way to bring the best out of your work, is to share it. Indeed, it is only fair that you put out your beautiful art pieces out there on display after spending hours to create them. This way, people get to appreciate your work, analyze and criticize them (which is good for growth), and of course buy them off you.
You can display your works in a physical art shop and attract people around your neighbourhood, but an online gallery is a better exhibition ground because the benefits are more. Here’s why you should get your artworks online.
You’ll reach a wider audience reach and gain more exposure.
Rather than go through the stress of visiting you physically, any and every one with internet access can view your works from the comfort of their gadgets in just one click and at any time of the day.
You get more opportunities to network with enthusiasts and peers.
Online art shops usually have focus group events where artists meet regularly to learn, network and explore arts. For instance, art635.gallery organized a couple of such events like “ARTmosphere” and “The Hard Part of Arts” in 2017. More of such events are scheduled for this year.
You get to make sales.
Online auctioning is the biggest thing that can happen to you. With so many people willing to pay for your works, only the highest bidder gets to own them at the end, which is good business for you. As for sales, it is inevitable even while you sleep.
You enjoy the FREE-dom
Why pay rent for a physical shop when you can display them online for FREE? So, if you are an Artist, Painter, Sculptor, or photographer, you can showcase your artworks to the world at no cost. All you need to do is sign up and get featured on Art635.Gallery, an online gallery for African artists across all categories.
