ArtFinder Alerts Art Buyers of New Available Artist Works

ArtFinder is a marketplace for people to discover and buy affordable original art online from a wide range of international artists and galleries. ArtFinder is a top curated online art gallery. Chief Executive of the ArtFinder site Jonas Almgren was quoted in the widely read BBC article on More Art Sold Online Than in Galleries, along with representatives of other top sites, such as, Saatchi Online and Artsy.

Some artists we know who recently opened up shop on ArtFinder– Gabriella Cleuren    Agent X   Leon Sarantos   Sharon Sieben   Marie Kazalia

ArtFinder has many advanced settings for tracking sales and shipments of your art, as well as for interacting with other ArtFinder artists and site Users. As an ArtFinder artist, I receive email alerts when a User (aka potential buyer) follows me or favorites one of my artworks. I can then follow the User back and  review the User’s profile to see all the artists the User has followed. With this new understanding of the User’s tastes, I may add images of my other available artworks to meet the User’s interests. ArtFinder sends the Users following me a newsletter containing images of my newly uploaded available work.

A recent ArtFinder newsletter (excerpted below) alerted me to new artworks available from artist Gabriella Cleuren–with cropped thumbnail images that enticed me to visit her portfolio on ArtFinder for full views of each work.
