Why buy original art from Zatista? We'll tell you here
Fair Thee Well

Greetings, art fans! Thinking of heading to an art fair this year?

I find art fairs appealing for a few reasons, including:

  • Safety in Numbers: art fairs draw crowds, which is a good thing. You won’t be a solo shopper which often happens in a gallery setting

  • Lots to Look at Under One Roof: depending upon the show you choose, you’ll see a comprehensive survey of work in a variety of media

  • Maximum Exposure to Fine Art: the more experience you have viewing fine art in person, the more comfortable you will feel buying art on-line.

Intrigued yet? I’d like to hit a contemporary photography fair this year so I’m sharing some of that imagery with you here.

Art fairs whet my appetite for new inspirations and remind me of work I’ve loved for a long time. Try it out. Surrounding yourself with all that creativity may be just the motivation you need to invest in your own collection of original fine art.
