open studios: the day after

Frankly, Open Studios didn't go all that well. Bishop and Tammy sold a few things, Forrest sold one print to a friend, and I sold squat. I was disappointed that ArtSpan seems to have done a poor job of promoting the event, as very few people who walked through the door were even aware that this past weekend was the official ArtSpam Open Studios Weekend ® in our neighborhood. Most of them just saw our sandwich board and wandered in off the street. These folks weren't really out to buy art, they were just out for a nice weekend stroll (and the weather was fantastic yesterday) and perhaps a few easily-found bargains.
Anyhow, I'm not sure Open Studios is the right venue for selling sculpture, or any kind of art over $100.

By the way, we're in the process of setting up a simple online shop where we can sell some of these pieces. Posted by todd at October 17, 2005 10:52 AM
