Get To Know The Artist
It has never been easier to get to know an artist. With the mass proliferation of the Internet and social media, for the first time in history, you can learn about the art and artists that you like from the comfort of your home. If you have the opportunity, it is always worthwhile to meet the artist in person at an event or a studio visit.

While there may be a variety of reasons that motivate a person to buy and collect art, at the end of the day art is about humanity and relationships. People buy art from other people. The more you know about the artist and their work, the more meaning the art will most likely have for you. If the art is interpretive, having a relationship with the artist is very helpful to understand the unspoken. I love to talk with my buyers and collectors about my artwork. It brings me a lot of joy to share the details and my personal thoughts about every aspect of the journey that went into the creation of the art they are interested in or have purchased. Many of my buyers have told me that they never look at my print the same way again after talking to me.
There are also a lot of perks that you would otherwise most likely miss when you get to know and build a relationship with artists that you are interested in. Many artists today have newsletters, email distribution lists, and other means of communications where they share information not available on the websites or social media. Some artist host open studio events or parties and other social events. Jump at the chance to attend any of these events.
