What’s Your Experience of Art Galleries?
Recently, I ran a poll on LinkedIn because I was interested to discover more about people’s experiences with art galleries.
I know that sometimes people feel a bit intimidated about walking into a white space full of masterpieces that they can’t touch, or challenging pieces of art that they don’t understand.
I’ve heard lots of horror stories and I know the experience can be a bit of a mixed bag for buyers.
These were the final results from the poll, which totally reflect my experiences, and what people have shared with me in person.
I really want buyers to LOVE their art buying experience. Whether in a gallery, or directly with an artist. I love it when people are so enthused, and they tell you about the whole encounter.
I’ll tell you a secret – you don’t have to love every piece of art that’s on display! Everybody connects with something different, and we all understand that.
You don’t have to be an art critic to appreciate art, have it transform your space, and transport your soul to a magical place.
Maybe in the past, you’ve felt perplexed by artwork that’s revered by others. Perhaps you looked at a so-called masterpiece and thought to yourself “I just don’t get what’s so special about it”? It might be that you’ve come away from the whole thing feeling distinctively underwhelmed. Often just understanding more of how a piece came about helps, other times, it’s fine, it’s just not for you!
My mission is to change the perception of art as something that leaves the viewer feeling alienated.
It’s not scary to contact artists (honestly)! We love creating our pieces, explaining the processes behind the work and we’re very happy to connect you to a perfect piece.
If you have a blank space on your wall or a nook in your home that you’d love to fill with artwork that speaks to you, visit my treasure trove of current collections to browse for the perfect piece here: https://artyheaven.com/julie-anns-art/
I also love creating special commissions and bespoke pieces that speak to you. Helping clients to translate the idea in their heads into a real-life piece that they will treasure. Find out more about my personalised commissions and how I work by visiting https://artyheaven.com/commissions/
You can also come and talk to me, at our upcoming online art exhibition on 29th and 30th January 2o21. Three sessions, across two days, from the comfort of your own home!
I’m planning to share a few pieces from each stage of my encaustic journey, so it’s a unique opportunity to ask questions and chat my art process through.

Wherever, and with whoever you discover your art, I hope it’s a really enjoyable and memorable experience!
