There are 5 more months until I host my first open studio. Gulp! In some ways I am ahead of schedule. I have art, a social media presence and a mailing list. Since I am one of 18 open studios in my town, where the event will take place, this gives me their expertise and marketing support.
Have you held an open studio or attended an open studio? If so, what do you recommend? My primary goal is to let my local community know about my art. It would be great if someone wanted to purchase or a commission a work of art. However, because my artwork is on the high end of open studio work, I am not expecting that. So, should I spend time making small artworks that could be bought on impulse or not?
Time Well Spent?
One idea I have is to sell greeting cards with mini fiber art inserted into a frame or aperture. I have a pack of notecards with matching envelopes that work. The inserted artwork can be removed and perhaps framed or hung after the card had been read.
