There are many benefits from supporting local artists, both individually and for the community as a whole. By purchasing from a local artist, you:
*…stimulate our local economy. In turn, this generates support for more of your own favorite local businesses. Sort of a ripple effect.
*…receive enjoyment from surrounding yourself with beautiful items that bring you pleasure. The first rule of buying a work from a local artist is… buy what makes you “feel”.
*…contribute to your positive mood. Art not only enhances the decor of a place, it more importantly fosters creativity and problem solving ideas.
*…gift a unique present for a birthday, a wedding, or any special occasion. Artworks purchased from a local artist make the perfect gift. They are unique pieces that are not ‘cookie-cutter’ mass produced art from ‘big-box’ stores.
“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ~ Pablo Picasso
