    Thinking of selling paintings at mall kiosk

    Hi all,

    To provide another avenue for selling my paintings and prints, I'm thinking about doing a mall kiosk. Anyone ever try this? Would be interested in how well you did.

    What kind of kiosk are we talking about? Will you have to rent it? One can sometimes sell work in most unusual venues. The only art I have ever sold was when I made small watercolor paintings, stuck them to blank cards and sold them as greeting cards at a local flower shop. ;-) Something similar might well work for small oil paintings as well.

    Here in Pretoria we also have a monthly show called "Art in the park," in which artists, for a modest fee, rent space in a park at which to exhibit and sell their work. Some of them do quite well this way.

    It would be the small stand in the middle of the mall. I would be selling prints and 9 x 12 oil paintings.

    Right now, most of my art income is through gallery shows, art fairs, personal sales, etc. This would just be an additional revenue stream.

    I'll be talking to the mall manager tonight. The rental rate is $250 per weekend (excluding November/December... which is $5000 per month) for a cart and electricity. It's much cheaper than some of the art fairs that I attend.
