“Our business was built on a sustainable model – regional business supporting regional artists. But we are very excited to report that we have exported local artwork to Hawaii, Atlanta, San Francisco and Las Vegas,” explains Janelle Fendall Baglien, president of Studio Art Direct.
With 60,000 hits to www.studioartdirect.com website, online sales have increased 50% in 2008.
The prospects for 2009 look promising despite the economic downturn. As consumers and business-to-business clients try to save money, sales of reproduction artworks are expected to increase. “Our focus will be on custom Giclees with hand embellishments by the artist this coming year. We are trying to achieve an original look and feel at an affordable price point,” says Baglien.
Studio Art Direct will also introduce a sustainable art line with art images reproduced on bamboo, hemp, and FSC certified Green materials. Baglien explains that eventhough art purchased locally is sustainable – for the economy, community and environment – people are looking for an even deeper level. “We are really pleased to introduce some of the first sustainable/green art solutions available in the United States,” explains Baglien. Studio Art Directs GreenLine will be available in March 2009.
