Building a successful career is entirely dependent on how fervent you are as an artist. If you are talented, creative and hardworking, you are preordained to be successful. Even though it does not happen overnight, but years of putting your heart and soul into your work helps you succeed in the end. You need to be consistent and persistent.
Getting gallery representation is not the only ingredient of your success recipe, but it is surely a crucial one particularly when it comes to galleries in Dubai because of considerable tourist visits to the region. With the arrival of internet, there is a misconception prevalent amongst artists that they do not need art galleries anymore as now they can sell their artwork to collectors. Internet is surely a wonderful opportunity, but you cannot ignore art galleries as well so, in order to build a successful career, you must utilize every opportunity.
Galleries provide collectors a wonderful and unmatched experience. People visit art galleries as they love to walk through the galleries and get enthralled by the mystical ambiance of the art gallery. They love to be presented with many options and finally they choose the best artwork. Internet fails to provide them such an experience.
Art shows and events fail to provide collectors the same experience. Galleries are able to create an atmosphere of luxury and they can also adjust temperature and light settings. Artwork that is sold in art galleries can easily demand high prices.
Best Way to Increase Your Audience Base:
There will be an audience interested in abstract painting and they will not visit your studio or online website if they know you are a portrait painter. But if your work is showcased at a gallery that they visit to explore abstract paintings, they will surely come across your work and chances are they will be influenced by your paintings and buy your painting.
So, it helps in increasing your customer base in this way. For example, galleries in art exhibitions in Dubai successfully showcase their artists and audience attending these exhibitions also get exposed to your artwork.
Saves Your Time & Energies:
Promoting yourself and your work online means you have to spare a lot of time and energy for this task. So, your work gets compromised because every minute you spend on your promotion is a minute you are not spending in your studio. You waste a lot of energy on promoting yourself which will still be not as fruitful as the promotion done by the art gallery.
Art Gallery management will make sure that they promote their artists. Besides, it is not necessary that the artist is also a good marketer, but art gallery usually hires people specialized in their fields to promote their artwork.
Minimal Chances of Financial Crisis:
When you expand your reach through galleries, and especially if you are lucky to have secured representation in more than one gallery, you will be able to have enough money to save for using at times of need. Even if you are not able to sell your artwork online, you can rely on galleries for sale of your paintings. For instance paintings in Dubai are usually sold more in art galleries than by artists in their studios.
Always remember to have more than one options. Those artists who have their artwork showcased in multiple galleries can always stay stress-free about going through financial issues.
