ArterNet Art - Online Art Gallery - was founded in mid-2020 while the world was in turmoil and my own experiences with online galleries grew more frustrating. Huge commissions, pressure to discount my work and a lack of connection led me to think if I'm feeling this, other artists must feel it too and there must be a better way!
Now, in the post-COVID era, numerous acts of kindness, thoughtfulness and generosity, have inspired the development of this platform, as a supportive and inclusive platform for artists right across the world. Our team of passionate artists, web engineers and marketers want to grow a vibrant community where artists can not only sell their work but learn, organise and grow their daily work life in the studio into a thriving online art business!
Generally, founders of such a huge project scramble to find angel investors, venture capital or they go to the public at large for crowd-funding. Especially for websites that need to be designed with the capabilities we require, not only for artists, but for the art collectors and buyers as well. I've spent many hours brainstorming with colleagues and our web-developing team, we've come up with a concept that's been very successful for other businesses starting out.We've opted to keep our crowd-funding in-house, to keep it amongst artists - our people - which means only artists who want to play a pivotal role and be part of this exciting new venture, who will in turn become our Founding ArterNet Art Members = FAM
We've adopted a type of 'Pay It Forward' system, which means you pay a one month subscription fee now and you will receive 6 months free subscription from the DATE we launch Stage 3 to the public, plus you will become a Founding ArterNet Art Member (FAM) for life!
Remember, you are paying it forward. Your generous payment of one month's subscription gets you:
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS :
For artists starting out
For up and coming artists
For fully professional artists with large portfolios.
