Katie on December 14, 2018

With the holidays right around the corner, many of your clients are looking for unique, thoughtful gifts for their friends and family. And what's more unique or thoughtful than an original piece of artwork?

Many galleries use the holidays as an opportunity to market and sell small works that are ideal gift choices! Small works are also a great way for clients to introduce their friends and family to your gallery's artists.

In the coming weeks, highlight small works in your email newsletter and on Instagram to help your clients find the perfect piece of artwork for everyone on their holiday shopping list!

Consider grouping small works by personality types, so clients can more easily search for works and find that special gift!
