3 Developing Art Platforms Artists May Want to Know More About

Most artists have their work for sale in the Saatchi online gallery, and perhaps in a few other online galleries, in addition to their own website, blog or online portfolio. Creating a presence on other sites extends your reach to those who buy art for their homes and businesses.

Here are a few newer art sites that caught our attention recently–

Ampliative Art is a new art site in Spanish and English with very grand plans and a manifesto. They hold live meetings and are currently crowdfunding to build their online platform. If you are the type of artist who likes to get involved from the early stages of development and growth then this may be the place for you.

Artellite, based in Canada, is for artists, art galleries, and arts organizations to join in those categories. They talk about transparency, and you do see right away when you visit the site the number of users. The site has been under development since 2014 and says that they are about e-commerce solutions for the Art World and about selling art. They have an interesting curated collection.  Take a look and if your art is a good fit you can join the site free here to check out the features. I noticed that Artellite offers sales options in multiple currencies–US Dollars, Singapore Dollars, Hong Kong Dollars, Canadian Dollars, Australian Dollars, Great Britain Pounds and Euros. Joining could extend your reach and international selling abilities.

The Artful Project is calling itself the new home of affordable art, and in this instance the word affordable seems a euphemism for print–and primarily photography based prints though they seem to be branching out into text-based artworks. They have curated collections and participate in Designers fairs and the not surprisingly Affordable Art Fairs.
