Let’s say you’ve decided to sell your landscape photography because friends, family or co-workers have offered to purchase one of your prints. Often, the next step is to see if you can sell your landscape photography in your local area? At first, getting noticed can seem difficult. However, there are places locally you might not have thought about where you can display your work. I’ve listed a few to get you started.
There are many camera, art clubs and organizations that may be in your local area worth looking into. Some art associations include many types of artists. They often have annual shows and exhibits where you can display along with others. These groups may do all the publicity to attract the public. Many times their exhibits are in local malls; art museums and can attract a large number of people.
Art Walks can be a fun way of getting your work noticed. Also, it’s a great way to make connections with community members as well as other artists. By talking to other participating artists, you may learn about other ways to promote your work in your town.
Local festivals can be fun. However, you should know up front that they are a lot of work and can be expensive. Not only will you need to have a significant amount of inventory, you’ll often have to pay the festival fees and insurance. If you choose to go this way, the right festival can be profitable. If you live in an area with a high amount of tourism, you have the potential to make good sales.
There are medical centers, restaurants and other businesses in you area that may be willing to display your work in their establishments. You need to look for the opportunities and be open to try new things.
Many libraries showcase local art on a monthly basis. Contact your library and find out how you can get on their list. Often, they will let you have a reception during the month. Generally, the library coordinator will send out a press release to local media about your photography display. In addition, they may even share it on their social networks.
Now, you’re ready to start showcasing your work within your local area!
