Why do people buy art?
Wow, that’s ‘a question for the ages’ with no definite answer. Some folks buy art for pure visual delight, some because the art says something personal and fits their identity. Then, some people buy art as an investment, while others buy art for gifts.
If your are anything like me, you find yourself looking for a gift that says something significant, and you want to express how special someone is to you. Why not a work of art? Original creations are growing in appreciation, and sought more frequently as the years and decades go by… original art is increasingly more popular.
“corporations are a driving force in the art market”
Apparently, corporations are a driving force in the art market because they give prints to their employees and clients as tokens of appreciation. Here’s a suggestion; how about the next time you’re lookin’ for a gift, buy art, buy American… even if it’s not my art, support an artist you know.
It has recently come to my attention that people buy art for gifts more than they do for themselves. Some experts think the reason is because it’s easier to give art as a gift than it is to make personal decisions about what to buy or where to display it. Guess I’ll have to give that one some thought.
