If you want to buy or sell art online Saatchi has one of the biggest names there are. Saatchi is a big name in the art world, and you can visit their 70,000 sq.ft. gallery on Kings Road in London.
You can choose to display and or sell your work on their website too. It seems to be a great way to get noticed.
Artists from more than 100 countries sell their work at Saatchi Art Online. The site gets over 12 millions views a month.
One of the most impressive things is they organize and take on the responsibility of shipping items to your customers. The artist is responsible for paying for the shipping materials, but the buyer covers the shipping cost. Saatchi will send a shipping package, and you include the artwork and a certificate of authenticity.
That is intriguing because I spend so much time in different places. As long as I have a person who can receive the shipping package and send it out, it can get delivered.
I've struggled with how to get the artwork shipped. That problem has been hovering around in the back of my mind for quite a while.
I plan on building a Saatchi Art Online profile. I'll let you know when I get it together. Who knows, one of you may be one of the first to buy an original Attenborough at Saatchi Art Online!
Art Sales Site - Daily Paintworks
I ran across Daily Paintworks the other day, maybe about two weeks ago. I'm surprised I didn't see it earlier. It is a very well organized site and easy to navigate.
It's a great place to find new original art. I spent hours looking over the content of the site for a couple of reasons.
First, I just like looking at art. Secondly, this site provides the ability for artists to create fully functioning websites using their technology.
You don't have to be a member to buy art there. When you buy a painting, it is directly between you and the artist. I like that.
Daily Paintworks is a small family run business.
I'm sure I'll be doing a bit more digging around this site to see how it can align with what I want to do.
