Association of Professional Artists

Those who create art do not always have the time to sell their work. Many art galleries and shops will sell art for a percentage fee. There are also shops that will allow rental space for artists. This involves paying rent for the space and the shop takes a smaller percentage whenever an item is sold. Associations for groups of professional artists are another outlet for sales. There are many different types of art and networking as a group will enhance sales. A customer who purchases a painting may also want a large vase. The painter would then recommend someone who makes pottery from their group. This leads to direct sales for the artist and helps to support their work.
