To Price or Not to Price? – New Answers in 2022

May 16, 2022

In 2012, I wrote a post about having mixed feelings about listing prices on my website. At that time, I decided not to include prices on my website, although I did have a page titled “purchasing” about how to buy my artwork.

Changing with the Times in 2022
The world has changed a lot since 2012, especially in the last 3 years, due to Covid. More people are working from home. Many purchases, including artwork, happen online – on computers, i-pads and cell phones. So I have decided to transition to an e-commerce website. I hope to broaden my art’s exposure and generate more sales of my artwork. Payment options through Stripe and PayPal, give the buyer the opportunity to pay by credit card. A percentage of the sale can be added to provide the buyer with a total billing cost that includes packing, shipping and insurance.

After doing a lot of research, I have decided to have my website hosted by FASO, which specializes in fine artist websites. Not only do they offer a variety of attractive, customizable templates, but they also have a wide range of marketing support features for artists. The online support information is very accessible and easy to understand. The chat support has been extremely helpful as well.

My fear of flying developed during several flights to Colorado. Electrical problems, fuel leaking out of an airline before take-off, auxiliary engine failure before flying into a blizzard, and many other “turbulent” experiences escalated my fear.

In early September 2001, there was a terrible thunderstorm when my airplane was about to land at BWI, Baltimore. The airport radar was struck by lightning Read the rest of this entry »

New York Revealed, Stirring the Melting Pot – a new exhibition by Marian Osher

Reception: Thursday March 3, 2016  6 – 8 PM

Exhibition Dates: March 1 thru March 26, 2016

Ceres Gallery
547 West 27th Street, Suite 201, New York, NY 1000
(between 10th and 11 Avenue in Chelsea)

Hours: Tues, Wed, Fri, Sat 12 – 6 pm, Thurs 12 -8 pm

Ceres Gallery is pleased to present New York Revealed, Stirring the Melting Pot, an exhibition of 
mixed-media paintings by Marian Osher.

“It is the blending of cultures that gives New York its character. In these troubling times of controversy about immigration, it is especially important to remember that our families were once immigrants too.” Osher says, as she stirs the melting pot with this exhibition of colorful paintings that share her explorations of Manhattan.

Just about everything about New York fascinates Osher—diverse cultures, ethnic foods, a treasure trove of little known landmarks, neighborhoods, parks, industry, city walls, even the trash (and there is a lot of it). Osher is a Maryland artist and frequent traveler to New York who loves exploring the city.

What makes New York such an extraordinary city is that it continues to draw people from all over the world. Cultural diversity makes this city vibrant, flavorful and exciting. And remember that it was a cafe in New York that was the first to serve cappuccino in America!

Marian Osher is a painter, printmaker, mixed-media artist and private art instructor. New York Revealed is her 22nd solo show, and her fifth solo show in New York. Her artwork has been shown in numerous group exhibitions in the U.S., as well as international shows in Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, India, Italy, Moscow, and Shanghai.
