If you had Painted over 20 paintings acrylic on canvas and wanted to display them to sell (not the markets) where do you think would be the most successful?🥳😍😇

I'm not sure where you are located Keerah1, but if you are wanting to sell art that you have personally made, you could try Social Media (Facebook Marketplace, Instagram would be a couple of places to start), If you can get clear, non-distorted photos of your work then you could upload the designs to Red Bubble and have your art put on clothing, stationary, phone/tablet cases, decor and printed in a variety of ways as framed works, posters, etc. Red Bubble is great in that you can decide on your own mark up/profit.
Another option would be to approach accommodation places. Family run motels, B'n'B's, etc could be an option. Your art could be their Reception or room decor and available for guests (or staff) to buy if they wish.
You could also put up a notice on your community noticeboard (often in Supermarkets or Main Streets or a library) letting your local community know that there is an Artist living amongst them and how your work os for sale. Another option could be Tourist Information Centres, i think they sell local's items so asking your local centre would be a good start.

As other people have stated cafes and restaurants do display and sell local artist works to the general public. It is a good way to get exposure as people can really see how they look and what appeals to them in such a setting.

I enter the art. Awards. Sometime they sell. Join places. That promote. Art depending on where you live there should be places you can. Display your art. Look at your local. Council. ,try your local cafe.
They may be interested. In letting you display your art. And. Sell it for a commission. DC

Art galleries will sometimes run an exhibition - especially the private galleries rather than government owned. Have a chat with the owner and see if you can strike a deal. Offer to help with marketing via social media to help ensure it's success. Having pictures available for only a short time creates a scarcity factor - people can't think 'I'll buy it next week'.

I like Aboriginal art because it’s so distinctive. I would buy art but I prefer my walls to be blank. When I first moved here all the pictures fell down and smashed so now that I have repainted it’s a big NO NO to bang a nail into the plaster. Also my walls reflect my soul… barren wasteland. Why don’t you paint your car and sign it? Everyone will notice your talent.

Try asking cafes or other local businesses if you could display them for awhile to see if you can attract a buyer.

Plenty of cafes etc place art for sale on the walls. I don't know how well it sells, or what cut they take.
