Creating Multiple Points of Sale and Art Products

I’ve set up unique buy options for my art and shared my images on Pinterest. The latest research reveals that about 28% of Pinterest users earn 6 figure incomes and use Pinterest to shop for home decor and other products.

My painting, Blue Rice Cracker, is one of 7 paintings selected by an art licensing company for limited edition canvas prints. (I will share that site in future). An art licensing contract will, of course, allow me to sell the original paintings, and so I have Blue Rice Cracker listed for sale on both Artsia and Zatista, since I’ve had painting sale on both sites before.

I am also free to sell paper prints, such as on the Society6 site, and textile prints on the Spoonflower site. On Society6 there is a buy option for my painting printed on this decorative pillow home decor item, which I promote to urban apartment dwellers, home owners, and Interior Designers alike.

The Print-A-Day Project of NYC Artist Michael Krasowitz

About 6 weeks ago, Michael Krasowitz started his blog The Daily Krasowitz where he posts a new fine art print each day. As Michael said,

“The goal is to create a print a day for the year ahead and write a bit about the experience.”

The artist also reports that he has had over one thousand blog views so far, already exceeding his expectation.

His fine art prints are really quite amazing, as you can see by the two examples here. View many more images of his work on the Daily Krasowitz.

BUY SOME DAMN ART

BUY SOME DAMN ART was founded by Kate Singleton of Art Hound in 2011. The up-and-coming artists of  BUY SOME DAMN ART  often create brand new work just for the site– making each of their online shows an unveiling of the artist’s latest and most exciting work.

Buy Some Damn Art accepts submissions. They are particularly drawn to work that is influenced by folk art, and modern and vintage illustration, as well as to work by self-taught artists and those who work in that style.

Spend some time on their site and if you feel that your work is a good fit for Buy Some Damn Art, then by all means get in touch. They love hearing from artists.

If your work is very different stylistically or thematically than what you see on Buy Some Damn Art then please think twice before submitting your work. They receive a lot of submissions (for very few open spaces) and take the time to look through each one.

The best way to submit your work is to send an email to hello@buysomedamnart.com with a link to your portfolio and a quick intro. If you don’t have a website you can attach 3-5 images of your work.

For more place to sell and submit your art, Artist Marketing Resources provides extensive resources for artists in the  900+ Places to Sell your Art PDF list  – http://artistmarketingresources.webs.com/apps/webstore/products/show/2969611

Art Sales on Artsia.com — Going Global

Below is the official press release–but I’m adding a bit of insider news first, not included in the press release:

Artsia.com sales will be in USD and focus on the US market, according to CEO Colin Mansell who also bought the domains Artsia.co.uk and Artsia.ca (Canada) plus several others. In the next 6 months Artsia plans to launch localized sites offering originals by artists in or near that country, and fine art prints from all the Artsia site artists will be available for sale on all localized sites. Visitors will be able to select the relevant country from the top navigation to toggle between the different Artsia sites and have the option to add all into one shopping cart for a single checkout process.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Global Art Gallery Artsia.com opens its doors!

A new global fine art platform Artsia.com has launched, exhibiting selected works by some of the world’s most respected artists. 

New York - Newly launched online art gallery Artsia.com is set to radically shake up the art industry, offering art buyers a curated selection of work by 500 carefully selected artists from around the world.

Since the arrival of the Internet, there has been a paradigm shift happening in how buyers interact with art. Instead of going from gallery to gallery, we now have access to a vast selection of art online.

Until now, several massive art websites have dominated online, offering an overwhelming mountain of art with little distinction between amateur work and that of contemporary masters. Traditional galleries have also failed to really engage their audiences online, if at all, usually offering only small selections of work online that match the limited scale of their physical ‘real-world’ spaces.

Artsia.com represents a radical change, harnessing the best of both the real and online worlds. Artsia houses several thousands of art works on unlimited ‘virtual wall space’, while making sure that only the very best work is included in the collection.

The work represented on the site is by member artists of the Society of International Artists. All artists must first go through a selection process that is carefully checked by the site’s international curatorial team.

Artsia is a truly global organization. The curatorial team is led by Catherine Higgs in London UK, (whose fine art pedigree includes Christie’s and Philips De Pury). Colin Mansell, Artsia’s CEO is originally from the UK, is now based in Vancouver, BC, while Artsia’s Editor, Lindsey Davis, is based out of New York.

The Artsia site is organized by individual artist profile pages, uniquely offering buyers direct contact with artists, and showcasing individual artist blogs that give a unique and highly personal insight into how each artist creates their work. The site also offers a unique set of online tools to bring the work into the real world, including ‘zoom in’ functions, and a ‘view to scale’ window, which allows you to view each piece to scale and see its approximate size hung on a virtual gallery wall.

The artist-buyer relationship is set to change in a big way, and Artsia is leading the way: showing how the internet can showcase great contemporary art while engaging with buyers online in a meaningful way.

Prices of original work start at around $100, and Artsia also offers a Fine Art Prints program, which offers open edition fine art prints, starting from as little as $18.

Shipping is available worldwide and all work bought on the site is guaranteed with a 7 day home trial period.

Innovative Idea For Presenting Art Images and Generating Sales

This is an innovative and clever way of presenting art images in an interactive art exhibition and generating print sales!

  • TWIN INFINITIVES IS an interactive photography installation.
  • A special library of images created by the artist are combined and recombined by an application built into a computerized display, to present randomly generated ‘twins’ of images, each lasting only a few moments.
  • Thousands of combinations will appear over the course of the exhibition, with each pair appearing only one time. If a viewer likes a particular pair, they can press a button built into the display to ‘capture’ the current pair and a print will be generated. Each print will be one of a kind, unique to that particular chosen moment, and titled with its own unique time code.
  • Once all combinations are generated, the application shuts down and the display is destroyed, leaving only the collection of prints VIEWERS have purchased as the record of the exhibition.

Electric Works Gallery and Print Publisher

Electric Works

Electric Works Gallery is a gallery and print publisher. They’re holding an open house this evening from 7 – 8 p.m. in their new gallery location, that houses new workspace and a bookstore, at

1360 Mission Street (between 9th and 10th) San Francisco, California. Visit their website and check the artists they publish, here: sfelectricworks.com/

Electric Works began printmaking in 1981, working with artists who are masters of strong visual content and with each printmaking project they have combined traditional techniques with new contemporary art challenges in an attempt to reinvent just what a print is, making the most ambitious projects possible.

In the Electric Works online bookstore you will find several prints in limited editions of 100 selling for only $40.00 each.

I enjoy reviewing small art publishing companies such as Electric Works, though hard to categorize for our PDF resource lists–are they an art licensing company, a gallery or a store?

You’ll find thousands of more links to art sales sites, art galleries and art licensing companies on our Artist Marketing Resources share lists. We’ve noticed an increase of sales of our PDF resources lists that sell for just $18.95. You can pay with PayPal or buy with Google Checkout** via the links below. Artists are gearing up for autumn submissions and using our resources, so I wanted to be sure to share these access links again:

I’ve added many more links to the 900+ Places to Sell Your Art list, and there are probably well over one thousand now, but I have not had time to count!

1st To Add My Art To New Artsia Site

What a surprise when the owner of the new Artsia fine art print site contacted me to tell that I was the very first artist to upload one of my artworks! He wanted my feedback on how easy it was to use the site features. Well, I had no issues. Artsia seemed super-power driven and so easy to use.

Artsia.com just went live a few days ago. My Artsia page was created for me from my ArtWeb.net account, since Artsia offers prints of my art on ArtWeb.net  and is an extension of that site. My Artsia page should be visible at www.artsia.com/mariekazalia.

Artsia is officially launching at the end of this month with a big PR push planned for the start of September.
