Buying Art during trying times

March 12, 2020

With all the virus scare, the thought of going out in public weighs on all our minds. But that shouldn’t stop you from buying art. As a matter of fact, this is a great time to buy art. Art not only enhances the look of the space you place it in, but it enriches your life. It uplifts you when your spirits are low and adds beauty to your life. Not matter what style of art inspires you, you can find it.

With big events cancelling along with some art shows, you can still find some shows that are still going on. Like this weekends Scottsdale Fine Art Festival, that takes place in downtown Scottsdale in a beautiful park setting. The show has taken steps to ensure that the artists and patrons health is watched out for. They have placed hand washing and sanitizer stations throughout the show. And artists and patrons have taken to fist bumping, versus hand shaking. So don’t let the virus scare stop you from attending, if you had plans to attend before. And if you can’t make it, but still want to buy some art, contact your favorite artist and add some beauty to your life.

We have a great inventory at this show, including two great floor sculptures and some gorgeous Redwood Burl pieces.
