Hot Tips & Cool Ideas for Art
Art for the soul
Fine art is often viewed as an investment, and indeed, art can be a good investment. But the immediate value of placing art in your home or office is the emotional impact it makes on you and your family. Thatís why itís important to select art that "speaks" to you, art that calls to your heart. The variety of art is as broad as the human imagination, so shop around and find out what "sings to your soul." Shopping for art -- "the hunt" -- is part of the fun. New Mexico has hundreds of art galleries showing the full spectrum of the arts, from folk to classical, landscapes, still-lifes and abstracts. Enjoy your "art hunting" in Santa Fe and throughout New Mexico.
Good framing enhances your art
Once youíve found the art you want to bring into your home and live with, be sure that your art is enhanced with good framing. A good frame does not draw too much attention to itself, which would distract from the art piece, but rather like a ribbon on package, "ties up" the art piece smartly, dresses it in an attractive, protective package, and enhances the viewing experience. There is an abundance of framing materials and styles, so consult with a good framer to help you select the right frame for your art and your budget.
Posters offer affordable art choices
Mass-produced posters are an affordable and easy way to get wonderful art on the walls of your house or office. Galleries and performing arts organizations often reproduce the work of top artists as part of their marketing efforts. Consumers benefit by this strategy, as they are able to buy the images of artists whose original works may be too expensive or hard to find. Todayís poster market offers a wide variety images for all tastes and interests Ė regional, ethnic, classical and crafts, from up-and-coming new artists to the masters. Check in with your local museum shops and poster galleries to see your options.
