Live Online Gallery Show!

Join me!! October 8 at noon CT 
Live on FB at Rita Barakat1
 We will be in the studio and we will look at different pieces that I've finished and talk about them! It will be live so you can ask questions! There will be brand new, never seen pieces as well as prints available. Please join me this day, invite your friends and celebrate with me this huge accomplishment finishing my masterclass!

  • Q. What is an online Gallery Show?
    An online gallery is just like a a gallery you would visit in person but online.  You get to see the gallery, the art on exhibit, hear about the artist and the art and purchase if you desire. In this case we are doing it live (in real time), I will share portions of the studio where I create art aas well as art pieces that are finished. 

  • Q. Do I get to talk to the artist? Yes the beauty of doing an online live show is that I will see your questions and be able to answer them in real time. 

  • Q. What I want to purchase something?
    You can purchase items that I share that day. There are some already in the shop now and on the day of the show there will be some new pieces yet to be seen! We will be doing the live gallery show online on Facebook but the purchases will be made through the shop HERE. We are also releasing PRINTS of some of your favorite pieces on OCT 8!

  • Q. Why purchase original art? 

    Original artwork is hand-produced, and every color is specifically chosen and hand-applied. Mass-produced reproductions use commercial inks instead of oil or acrylic paints, and they are printed by machines. Sometimes, your mass-produced artwork will look pixelated or digitally rendered when you look closely at it. Originals never have that risk, and even the most amateur art lover can tell the difference between an original artwork and a store-bought décor item.

    A one-of-a-kind artwork will make your space your own. How often have you noticed the same Ikea artwork in several friends’ living rooms? Even if the artwork isn’t by a well-known artist, the originality of the piece evokes more of a sense of wealth and personality into your living space.

    Original artworks have depth – literally. Whether gallery wrapped around stretcher bars or framed for protection, an original artwork will actually pop off the walls. Simply put, this depth will always fill a room more powerfully than a flat poster against a wall.

    -The ‘Story’

    There’s not much conversation value in “Oh, I bought this from [any major retailer]. However, when you buy original art, it’s often an adventure. Many times you may meet the artist in person, hear their story behind the artwork, and understand the feeling behind it. Or you might have seen it in an art gallery on a vacation. Because the process of buying original artwork is so different from buying mass-produced consumer artwork, you can usually expect to have a great story to tell at the end of it. Not only can these stories impress your guests, but they’ll also help forge deeper personal connections between you and the artwork you buy.

    -The Emotional Element
  • The higher quality looks, the originality, the depth, and the story behind the original artwork all add up to help create a strong emotional connection to the original artwork you end up buying. The sheer fact that original artwork can often cost more money means that you wouldn’t end up buying it unless you already felt a connection and attraction to this artwork.

    -Investment value
    The great thing about buying artwork is that it can often appreciate in value. Unlike furniture or Pottery Barn statement pieces, artwork typically does not lose its value for having been pre-owned. Instead, if you invest smart, your artwork may be worth more after years hanging in your living room than it was worth when you first bought it.

  • Q. When will I receive my purchase?
    We will wrap you purchase with care and ship it within the week!  We ship USPS, all packages are insured and you will receive a confirmation tracking number.

  • Q. How do watch online?
