No meeting next week (Feb 21st) as there is a show at the church so our room will be in use
Three of us went on the Leeds Art Walk this evening to the Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery at the University followed by Leeds Art Gallery, Leeds College of Art and the newly opened &Model gallery on East Parade. Stanley and Audrey is always excellent and walking through the installation at the Art Gallery was an unusual and interesting experience. The highlight was &Model which featured some simple but very pleasant pictures - well worth a visit!
It's often amazing how some people value their art when it comes to their expectations as to what they are worth. Saw an interesting article about pricing paintings today. It suggested that initially you should price your paintings very low as it is better to get them out there than to have an attic full of pictures. When you are selling them faster than you can paint them then you should put the price up. When you are selling them at the rate that you are painting them then you have hit your point in the market.
