Hi everyone! Today I’m going to introduce you to a wonderful little art company called Art Cricket LA! I’ve interviewed co-founder Rhiannon Gillis to give you, my readers, an inside look into this delightful new gallery!
In one sentence describe Art Cricket LA.
Art Cricket LA is a way for people to determine their art style, and pairs their taste with a local LA artist.
Now give us a little more detail!
Well, ultimately by using Art Cricket, you take a quiz and we will help you determine your art style. From there we can use those results to find artists throughout LA that seem to match your needs best. We’ll find you the right piece of art according to style, size, and any other requirements you may have. The best part, this is all according to your budget, no matter how small or large.
Is your gallery store online or at a physical location?
We have a large gallery that we keep private. We do this because when a person is unsure of the art they are interested in, it can be pretty overwhelming. We send you only what you may enjoy, and we go from there.
Let’s say I don’t know what kind of art I am drawn to – how would you help me?
This is commonly the biggest problem. So we have you take a QUIZ. This quiz has questions that will help us to decipher your interests and style accordingly. With the results we can determine which art and or artists you may enjoy the most. This seems to be the biggest aid to those who are unsure where to start.
Do you hold events where we can actually meet some of your local artists?
Absolutely. Usually about once a month we hold a gallery, opening, or space at an art walk, that allows us to meet clients and artists alike. We enjoy having some of our artists attend the events so that those interested in purchasing can make that connection. It’s another part of the experience that we believe can be important in the process of purchasing art. However more often than not there is no meeting between the two. We take care of everything for you so there is no need. People seem to prefer this method.
Let’s say I have a really tight budget – would I be able to find affordable art?
Realistically this is the case for most people. We have an Art Cricket Store that is slowly growing in size. It has art options for those who want to spend less than $200 and you can purchase the piece and have it shipped straight to your door.
Let’s say I’m an artist living in LA – how could I become part of Art Cricket LA?
We encourage artists who are interested in working with us to apply on our page. You can do this by going to the APPLY page, and submitting an email with the information listed. We know that the larger our gallery is, the more likely we will find something to better suit your needs.
How can I stay up-to-date with all your new art?
We try to share as much as we can through our blog, facebook, twitter, and instagram. We show art and information on others as often as we can. We appreciate when others show support for us, so we feel that it is important to do the same for others.
