Art in the Professions
Many people sell their art to make extra income, or as a full-time job. But how, and where? Surprisingly, there are quite a few options out there. And this works for physically made items such as jewelry, postcards, and traditional art, as well as digital items like t-shirt designs, photos, and digital art.
If you prefer to sell offline, in the real world, whether through a third party, or in person, there are several options for you. You can show your art in a gallery, sell in boutiques, craft fairs, or go by word of mouth.
Galleries sometimes charge you to display your work, but get a fair bit of exposure. Boutiques get lots of exposure and customers, but owners sometimes require you to split profit with them, and often go by consignment, so they don't buy the items directly from you, you only get paid when they sell. But they also do all the marketing and share some space in their shop with you.
