New way to exhibit your images - A new gallery has been launched for artists, illustrators and art photographers at Artfair365.co.uk.
Artfair365.co.uk - a new online gallery for artists, illustrators and art photographers - has just been launched. Developed by Red Plus Yellow Limited, artfair365.co.uk is designed as a one-stop shop for art lovers and artists.
Artfair365.co.uk's creator, James Taylor explained: "As an amateur artist and photographer, I struggled to find an easy-to-use and cost-effective way to exhibit and market my art online. Although services exist where I could create my own individual website, I was looking for a wider community site that would exhibit my art alongside others and be seen by a wider audience. Artfair365.co.uk was designed specifically with this in mind."
Artfair365.co.uk offers different types of accounts - from a Premier Artist account to a basic free account. Each user has a secure admin area where they can manage their account, portfolio and profile. Users can view and reply to messages from potential buyers, and even advertise art related items for sale such as used art books or materials on the site.
Prices for paid subscriptions start at just £25 per year for a Standard Artist Account, which allows users to publish up to 25 images in their portfolio at any one time. The Premier Artist Account which offers additional benefits (including a personal web address, comprehensive web stats and a preview on the artfair365.co.uk home page) costs just £50 per year.
Buyers can browse and search artwork for sale - by subject, medium, colour etc. - and contact artists directly through the website. Artfair365.co.uk doesn't take commission on any sales - artists manage their own sales, as it suits them.
