I need some help deciding where to go with my art in terms of successfully selling, while not completely changing what I am currently doing.
I am a printmaker -- I make large, multi-colored linoleum reduction prints. Framed, these are priced between $275 and $600. They are fairly large -- the smallest image is 10 x 14, and the largest is 20 x 25 (unframed). Examples of most can be seen on my website elizabethbusey.com
I have read in Maria Arango's Art Festival Guide (which I recommend!) that it is helpful to have some items in a lower price category (maybe $50 - 100?). For me this would mean making much smaller prints, and probably ones that don't have as many layers and detail. Just thinking about that makes me a bit sad.
Another option is to provide cards. Hand printed cards are almost as labor intensive as smaller prints, but as a printmaker I'm reluctant to provide photographic reproductions of my work (at least not in the same display with the originals). People are confused enough about printmaking as an original art form.
I would appreciate any advice, especially from the printmakers out there.
