We're just starting out not on Facebook, but on Twitter, and there's a great general rule for sharing relevant content - so it doesn't get too personal or boring for followers, and still encourages engagement. It's called the rule of thirds and is transferable to Facebook too. It goes:-

One third of your time on your profile you should be sharing useful content about your industry, whether that be great exhibitions in your area, news about fellow artists, developments in technique or new equipment, as well as personal hints and tips you're happy to share - it shows you know what you're talking about. Another third of your time should be engaging with your followers, saying thanks for following, asking what their interests or hints and tips are, and just striking up conversation. And the final third of your time should be self promotion - showcasing your work, workshops, open studio, offering competitions etc. That way you never run out of things to say and your followers get lots of varied posts. Plus it helps with ranking factors too in the search engines!
