Art Direct From Artists began as a group board on Pinterest that has proven to be so popular that I decided to expand it into a new LinkedIN group–join Art Direct From Artists on LinkedIn here.
This new group board will make it easier for all professional to find artists with artworks for sale. Art Direct From Artists on LinkedIn is where hospitality industry executives and others, who really don’t know where to find art for their interior projects, can come and interact with artists who have artwork available.
Artists are welcome to join and pitch their work in the new Art Direct From Artists @LinkedIn group. Art buyers and collectors are welcome to join and find new emerging artists to buy from in the group Art Direct From Artists.
It’s a little bit outside-of-the-box for a LinkedIn networking group. No artist will ever be considered a spammer in this group! No self-promotions get flagged here. Artists are welcome to talk about their work. Buyers and art collectors are welcome to join and interact with artists. Artists are free to start discussions about their work and share links to their websites, online portfolios and web shops that direct buyers to where they can purchase original artworks.
The Art Direct From Artists concept has worked well on Pinterest as a vehicle for directing buyers to view artist’s work. In fact, one full year before Pinterest began offering *Buy Button* options to sell items via pinned product images, I started the group Pinterest board Art Direct From Artists— which requires that artists have retail prices on their artwork pinned images.
