Whether you are in search of new artists or new art galleries, there is probably something in your area that might surprise you. So, keep reading to access a list of tips on how to find the best new art in your area. 

Find Artists on Social Media

One of the ways that artists promote themselves these days is on social media. After all, just about everyone utilizes one or more social media platforms to showcase who they are and what they do, right? Well, if you are on social media, you can use those platforms to search for local artists. You might be surprised by the number of creative people in your local area, and you may come across people who are already well-established, as well as those who are new to the local art scene and hoping to generate a buzz.

Once you find new artists on social media, you can start following them to keep on top of what they are up to, and you might be able to attend an event or head to a gallery to see their artwork in person. Using Nuwber to access contact information can also come in handy if you are hoping to contact one of them directly to see if they can make a custom piece of art for you or tell you about upcoming events. 

Check Out Art Galleries, Shows, and Fairs in the Area

Another way to come across the amazing artwork of someone you haven’t yet heard of is by regularly visiting local art galleries. And if there are any art fairs coming up in your area, you can make it a point to visit them as well. You never know what you will come across. Even college art shows can give you insight into what up-and-coming artists are doing, or you might discover a student artist who is ultra-talented. 

The point is to get out there and see what is already going on in your area. There is only so much that you will be able to find online when it comes to artists and their works. If you want to see beautiful artwork in person, and maybe even stumble upon something new and exciting, head out to see what you can find. 

Ask Your Friends If They’ve Come Across Any New Art 

Sometimes, people within your own circle of family and friends can give you tips on where the newest and most talented artists can be found. If you know other people who love art as much as you do, you could always ask them if they have come across anyone noteworthy recently. Then, you can check out the artist for yourself to see how you feel about the beauty they create.  

Ask Local Businesses That Display Artwork

A lot of small businesses in your area might already be displaying lovely artwork by artists who are easy to access. For instance, if you have a café nearby that rotates through different art pieces to display the work of locals, you can check out what they are showcasing. Or, you might know of a fun retail location or restaurant that does the same. 

As you can see, finding beautiful artwork and the artist behind it doesn’t have to be challenging. You might be shocked by the many talented people who work in your area, and you may be able to hire them to create a custom piece just for you.
