Art Etiquette Lesson for today. For All, when an Artist invites you to an art opening, it's not because they are looking solely for sales, they are wanting to see you, to share with you their latest creations that they have worked diligently on and are excited to share their visions with the rest of their friends. If you are on an invite list, consider yourself very blessed to have a friend who cared enough to send you an invite. To good artists that care deeply about their "Children", i.e. their originals and what home they go to, you are considered a friend, not just a sale or client. Artists aren't looking just for sales, they need your support by simply showing up, saying hello and staying to have some wine or horderves that are offered. It's just like being invited to a party. Even if you can't afford to buy anything or even if you simply don't like their latest work, you just might tell a friend who will like it and they will be grateful to be invited to a cool social event. Also, when you accept to come out and support the artist just by showing up, it helps the show look better. If you decline an invite please give a reason why as it is also considered good manners or if you are tired of being invited; please let the artist know that you want to be removed from their mailing list. Artists like most people need to have a good count of who they can count on to show up. Also, if you want people to support your business, you need to help support theirs.
