How & When To Visit An Art Gallery

The great place to start enjoying art is in the art gallery.

Before the visit, try your research about art galleries that showcase your best interest. The best art scenes usually are in the cities of New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, although don't stop looking as there are still many excellent galleries out in major cities.
Most galleries change their shows every 6-8 weeks, so keep going back as new arts are updated.

Time it right when to visit galleries. Most of them are typically open from Tuesday-Saturday. If you prefer to visit in a more peaceful setting, avoid the weekends since they are the busiest. Plan to visit during weekdays. It's also fun to go to a gallery opening...you don't usually need to be invited to attend.

Get the habit of making your own feedbakcs from any gallery's art works. Do a lap around the room, look and evaluate the art yourself. It's essential to know what an artist is saying on the art itself, but it's equally important to have your own experience of the work.

It's perfectly fine to ask questions about the art work from the artists or from the gallery personnel if they are around.
Remember: Everyone has to start their art education somewhere :).
