Emotions pass over time, but what they have done remains
To engage with art is the best way to explore emotions, to experience them, to feel your real self. This is why I am inviting the readers of Beautiful Lifestyle Magazine to learn about art, to engage with it, to unfold this world full of beauty.
#Artfair season is upon us. #Art fairs can be overwhelming for any #artlover.
Even if you’re not an #artdealer or an avid collector, one of the best ways to #discover new artists, #buy the latest works, and follow the trends of the #artworld is to attend an #artfair. However, to make the most of your visit, there are a few things you may want to consider before you head out.
Discover the world’s most exciting art fairs of this autumn and the upcoming winter, join KSHTN tours and heed of the following advice.
1. DO YOUR HOMEWORK
Art fairs can be overwhelming for first timers and veterans alike. Do yourself a favour and visit the fair’s website first to check out the layout. Familiarise yourself with the #galleries and #map out your route to ensure you don’t miss any noteworthy galleries or #artists.
2. DON’T BE SHY, ASK QUESTIONS!
Believe it or not, gallerists are there to talk to fair visitors! They are obliged to share what is on display in their booth and how awesome the artists they represent are even if sometimes it doesn’t seem so. If you see something you like, have a question about a certain piece, or just want to chat, don’t be afraid to strike up a conversation!
3. DON’T GET OVERWHELMED – JUST HAVE FUN!
That’s what you did your homework for! You made the notes of what and who you want to see, so take a deep breath and follow your plan. You don’t have to see everything, just what YOU want to see! Plus, fairs span over multiple days, you can always come back another day!
4. PARTICIPATE IN PROGRAMS AND FEATURES
Most art fairs include some very interesting programs and features. Whether it’s a talk, tour or a performance piece, these added bonuses will enhance your overall fair experience. Don’t miss out.
5. TAKE A BREAK
With so much to see, you could be at the art fair for a long period of time. It’s more than okay to take a step back, grab a snack, and just enjoy the flow of your surroundings.
6. SNAP AWAY, BUT DON’T FORGET THE LABELS!
Guests are encouraged to take photos of the artworks throughout the fair. These photos can help you decide on purchasing a piece. Just don’t forget to take a photo of the booth number and the artwork’s label! There’s nothing worse than trying to navigate your way back through a busy fair when you can’t remember where your favourite piece is located.
7. FOLLOW YOUR HEART
When you fall in love with a piece of art, you simply fall in love. If you find yourself still thinking about it as you walk through the fair, you know you’ve found your fit! Buy the art that will make you happy every time you look at it! There is no other reason as great to purchase a piece of work!
8. STAY CONNECTED
Art fairs are the perfect place to go crazy with social media, plus you can keep up to date with galleries and artists easily! Watch them travel the world from art fair to art fair!
