I’ve recently received several emails from artists who have put the principles of How to Sell Art to use and have seen great sales results. If you’ve read the book and it’s had a possitive impact on your sales, please leave a comment below or email me! If you haven’t read it yet you can order at http://xanadugallery.com/howtosellart/
I thought I would provide you with some positive feedback regarding your book, HOW TO SELL ART.
First of all, the book arrived just as we were starting a 3 day outdoor art show. So I got to read the book.
I had to read it quickly so that I could use the ideas in a real live environment as soon as possble.
So on the second day of the show, I became enthused with your suggestions. I reached out vocally to
people who came to the tent. I worked at getting to know them and what they were looking for.
And, I think that I did a pretty good job using some of your ideas and they worked.
We were able to sell a few pieces (originals) that day.
Also, during the show we asked people who appeared really interested but wanted to check size of walls etc.
to give us their email address. The Monday following the close of the show, I sent out emails (at least 6) with thumbnail
images of the pieces and details and pricing information to those individuals that had indicated an interest.
I received 2 responses back and one of them is asking to buy an original.
So, I just want to say thank you for the timely information. Your ideas work!

Yesterday, I got your email about your new book on “How To Sell Art”. I
read your sample chapter 5 and knew instantly that your book was full of
valuable insights on selling art. I ordered your book immediately. The
following day I had an open studio tour at my house and I thought I would
try some of your sales techniques that you talked about in chapter 5. I
started to engage the potential customer in conversation about my
photographs. This is something that I haven’t done too much of in the past.
I told the story behind the photograph that they seemed to be attracted to.
I started asking questions about what they liked about my work. This is all
lead to a closer bond to that potential customer. At the end of the day I
sold 3 large piece and I am so thrilled that I thought I would say thanks.
I don’t even have your book yet and I made 3 sales! I am looking forward to
tomorrow’s open studio and trying more of what I learned in that one
I loved, loved, your book, how to sell my art!
I did great at my last two open studios: 10 sales for sure + 12 commissions and many more people
to visit or who will come and visit me, this coming week…
