Artists Personal Studios
The best way to get a sense of what artwork speaks to you is to go to an artist’s studios and get a feeling for these works in person. Visiting artists’ studios will let you get to know the artist better.
It can be difficult to find a studio if you don’t know the artists to begin with, but a quick Google search will often show you who the local artists are in your area and where their studios are.
A quick phone call or email and you should be able to arrange a visit fairly easily. Artists are always keen for their work to be seen, touched and experienced.
