Art has a lot of benefits. Not only can it be visually beautiful but it actually can enrich an experience. Take entertaining, for example. Inviting guests into your environment can be a pivotable experience for everyone and may even set the tone for future relationships. Part of entertaining guests may include great conversation, tasty food and delicious wine but an often overlooked opportunity is the art that’s displayed.
If you’ve displayed a piece of art that speaks to you and it has a beautiful story behind it, you’ll have the opportunity to share this with your guests (not unlike that amazing bottle of Merlot you have from that sweet little B & B vineyard tucked away in the Okanagan you visited last year.) It can spark conversation around your coffee table and even help people better understand a little bit more about yourself.
Perfecting the art of entertainment is practice in sharing, openess and authenticity. What better way to check all of those boxes than by displaying a piece of locally made artwork!
