Giving artists an opportunity to show their work, particularly those, like me, who have limited funds, seems like an awesome idea, and a great way to use what I learned over the last year in a positive way. If, like me, you can't afford endless entry costs for shows and competitions (which rarely benefit the artist) then this may be for you. It also works for those who don't want to part with large commission fees, you probably worked really hard and don't want to give half away every time you part with a piece! I don't want to charge commission fees at all, and there are ways of making it work while allowing you to keep the money from your sales. The simplest is this : You have your own artist page, with all your artwork and information in one place and a contact form so that people can get in touch with you directly through this website. You would have total control over sales, be responsible for replying to messages and delivering the goods.
You arrange the sale and you keep the money ... simple!
I will create your page, and once you are happy, the page goes public and you can share it to your hearts content. Put the link in your bio and people can view your work and contact you directly through the site. You have official representation, and our website visitors have more beautiful art to choose from. You can pitch for commissions on there, have plenty of photos, as many contact details as you're happy with, share info about galleries and shows you have coming up and I can even add a map for you, if you like! People will be added on a first come first served basis, so if this appeals please register your interest below, and I'll keep you updated on the process, and send some guides on artwork images and writing a good bio too. More info on what type of art qualifies, coming soon - the good news is - most art! And if you have any other ideas or feedback, just let me know, I'd really love to hear from you!
