Recently I have been asking everyone: “Why handmade art?”
The market is saturated in mass produced low cost art reproductions that can be found in Target, Walmart, World Market, Crate and Barrell….just about everywhere!
So why do you specifically choose to buy art that costs more from an artist?
Here are the top reasons I’ve found:
- Meet the Artist- you get to know their inspiration, hear their story, make a new friend and get an awesome piece of art all at the same time!
- Supporting our local/national economy
- Originality- no one else has one just like yours
- Beauty is more essential in our lives than most people realize and there is nothing like a handcrafted item
I’d love to hear if you have any more reasons. Comment below and thanks for sharing.
