Could you share some thoughts on pricing artwork? In November I will have my first exhibition, and I am considering all options and viewpoints on how to value my pieces. So, I have my oil paintings (12″x16″), drawings (charcoal or graphite) and photography (my reference photos). I would like to sell my photographs as a limited series – 10 prints or so per unique design.
Research online gives a very varied range of prices. I went to a joint exhibition of several galleries, and was shocked at some of the high prices for very very basic paintings (perhaps I’m stupid and don’t ‘get it’,a distinct possibility 😉 ).
I want to be serious about my art and at the same time be realistic + down to earth. Overpricing will only make me feel self conscious, giving my pieces away will feel uncomfortable too.
