Calgary Artists Featured in Upcoming Abstract Collective Art Show & Sale

November 05, 2014 (posted by Jennifer Campbell, Home Staging Calgary)

Calgary artists will be stepping out from behind their canvases to share their work at the Calgary Abstract Collective Art Show & Sale in November. As a professional home stager, I know the power that the perfect piece of art can have in a space. So I’m looking forward to this local event.

If you’ve been following my posts, you are well aware of how much I love the Hillhurst Sunnyside and Kensington areas of Calgary. I love to support my community and share the various locations, shops and activities that are within walking distance of my home.

And you have seen many pictures of my staging work where I include art to create spaces that are appealing to potential buyers. I even use art to stage bathrooms!

After: This dining space is perfect for enjoying family meals or entertaining guests.

Abstract art, like the paintings available through the Calgary Abstract Collective, are helpful for use in staging for two reasons:

  • It avoids the potential negative response that could occur with figurative art – for example, you decide to display artwork of people or animals (figurative) and it triggers potential buyers to react negatively due to their personal emotional or memory response to those specific images;

  • It allows you to focus on the colour palette of the space, creating a feeling of unity and making a space feel more like a home
