Membership Benefits: Selling your work while hosting
Membership benefit: Selling your own work while you are hosting the gallery.
Do you take advantage of this great benefit?
You can bring in your work to sell for the hours you are hosting. It’s like your own special private show.
Here is some advice from BAA members that take advantage of this benefit.
“For me, being able to bring in small items of my own to sell while hosting is a big bonus.” says Darlene. When hosting she brings in a small display of note cards or small canvas prints. Visitors will comment and then she can talk about her art and hopefully make a sale.
Laura uses the desk or a small table to display her art while hosting. She also says, “It’s great opportunity to see what it is people like, and purchase and what other artists are creating. It’s inspiring.”
“I make eye contact with visitors, and after greeting them, often watch to see what catches their eye. What they are looking at is where I try to start a conversation.”
