How to sell art?

I talked with several people participating at the platform project, who experienced it to be difficult to sell art, or art that is less obviously commercial. Downstairs the prices are clearly presented, here at the platform project not. For us the main purpose is not to sell, but still it would be nice to get something sold for most of the booths participating, at least to cover the participating fees. Somehow the visitors doesn’t seem to view the art here as something they could buy. What can the artists do to sell their art? Talking about and presenting it isn’t really filling the purpose, because then you still need to mention the price and market it. And that is difficult. Maybe the easiest way is to sell other artists work, not your own. A clear price list or some red dots under the works might also work. So, who has got some red stickers..?
