IndieWalls is automated art consulting. It’s a site for artists to easily pitch their art, with one click, to hotel and residential projects actively seeking artworks for their walls.

This site is a huge time-saver for artists to reach out to new markets!

THE PROBLEM, as IndieWalls explains it, is that every commercial property needs artwork, yet they have a hard time finding real artwork from real artists for their interior spaces.
So to create THE SOLUTION IndieWalls has built a platform that lets commercial art buyers find real artwork from real local artists. “In the past year we’ve helped create art collections for hotels like Thompson Chicago, Andaz 5th Avenue, and Trump Soho…”

To get started–Create your artist account on IndieWalls and upload images of your art. You can now review current project actively seeking artworks and send them your pitch!

Plus, when new projects seeking artwork are added to the site, you will receive an email notification that they are accepting pitches.

It’s super easy to see, at a glance, what artworks the project is seeking. For instance, the hotel project Gild Hall is currently seeking colorful, edgy work– their wants clearly tagged like this:

You have artworks to fit their needs, so now you want to create your pitch.

It is fast and automated. You simply click on the word *Pitch* that appears on each of your artwork thumbnail images. A box appears that allows you to write your text and add more images–such as detail shots, or wall installation views of your art. You can pitch that particular artwork, with retail price, or you can offer commissions.

Then click send. Your pitch goes to the project and your artwork appears on the project selection page–so project administrators will be sure to see it.

It’s that easy!

Another project currently active on IndieWalls–the Beechwood Residential building, under construction, lists their color pallet as teal, sage, green, mustard/gold, beige, light grays, medium gray and charcoal. They want Abstract, Architectural, Black and White, Classic and Geometric artworks for their lobby and corridors.

This essentially is all you need to know to pitch a series of your fine art photographs for their corridors, or offer a commission of large scale geometric paintings for their lobby.  Create and send in your pitch to them for consideration. Time spent creating your pitch on IndieWalls in minimal and could lead to a sale or commission.

There are many more automated sites used by art consultants! We have a huge collection of Art Consultants who are seeking artworks for their databases–get it here. Their databases contain your art images that they show to their clients. It’s easy to get your work into art consultant databases–and we tell you how–in the Transmedia Artist Guide to Making Artist Submissions ebook here and here.

Popular “feel good artist” J.R. Smith’s Paintings Sell Right Off the Artist’s Easel!

Artist J.R. Smith does well with painting sales and commissions in his home state of Texas. Even as he sent me photographs of his art for this blog article, the artist reported that he’d just received two more painting commissions that day. An art lover visiting the artist’s studio bought the painting titled Spring Ocotillo and Dove as the artist sat working on it at his easel!

The well-known and well-liked artist was painting on a Texas ranch over thirty years ago when someone referred to him as a “cowboy artist.” J.R. much prefers the designation made by one art critic who called the artist’s work “feel good art.” J.R. Smith paints public art murals and frequently exhibits his easel size landscapes, horse paintings, other animal paintings, architectural views, portraits, and abstract works in art exhibitions throughout Texas. The Texas-based artist receives national and international attention via exhibitions of his work and via his website. According to J.R. Smith, The Judd foundation hosts numerous art exhibits in their facilities throughout the town of Marfa, Texas, and “for the month of October the foundation has numerous festivities that draw folks from all over the world.”

“One of the main attractions in Marfa is the historic Paisano Hotel. During the filming of the classic film Giant, Rock Hudson, Elizabeth Taylor, and James Dean stayed in the Paisano Hotel. The hotel has an exhibition space named the Greasewood Gallery and I had a very successful abstract show at their Greasewood Gallery last October during the Chinati Foundation festivities. From the show, my painting Turquoise-spikes went to entertainer Matt Skinner of Fort Collins, Colorado.”

Italian sportsman and art collector Mario Nobili recently hunted elk at a ranch in the Alpine, Texas area. He and his wife also traveled to New Mexico and shopped for art.  They stayed at the historic Holland Hotel where artist J. R. Smith has work on display and expressed an interest in visiting the artist’s studio. The artist contacted and the studio visit arranged,  Mr. Nobili arrived and purchased two pronghorn sheep paintings on canvas and a larger image on a wood panel.  The canvases removed from their stretchers, rolled and wrapped for the Nobilis to carry back to Italy on the plane. The large painting on wood put into a crate and shipped to Italy. The collector also commissioned a painting and plans to return to buy more from artist J.R. Smith.

Ghost towns are another popular tourist attraction, and J.R.’s  Ghost Home is a painting based on a building in the ghost town in Terlingua, Texas.
The busy artist recently completed the sixth of a series of nine Cinco de Mayo themed pieces for a Mexican restaurant and is at work on two mural panels, four by eight feet in dimension each, commissioned for a bar and restaurant.
