Impulse - A spur of the moment, unplanned decision to buy, made just before a purchase

What triggers your impulse to buy something?  Emotions and feelings are triggered by image, color, memory. It is a feeling of “I must have this, I must own this.” Impulse buying disrupts a consumer’s rational decision-making process. 

We are seeking works that hit the sweet spot for consumers.  We are looking for desirable works of art at reasonable price points, small, amazing works that collectors will want to own. We are looking to create art addicts.

Consider it a try-out. Bring us works that we, the jurors will covet. Bring us something that tempts us to curate your works into a future show. Something so cool it will be instantly collected. Something so unique it will linger in people’s minds.

Sculpture, painting, drawing, photo, printmaking, mixed media, collage, assemblage, ceramics, fiber art, artist book - Original artwork only. No giclee reproductions.

Arc Gallery & Studios partners: Michael Yochum, Priscilla Otani, Stephen C. Wagner, & Matthew Frederick
