Branching Out: Artfinder

I’m finally decided to branch outside of Etsy and start selling my work on Artfinder. I really like the site so far! It seems to be a really great community of artists, and artists are often buyers – something I wouldn’t have thought would be popular but seems to be. So far I’ve listed 6 works of art and have gained over 50 followers in less than a week, and someone has my barn owl painting in their cart already. I’m hoping this will be successful!

Does anyone else on WordPress have any experience with selling on Artfinder? If so can you leave a comment and let us know your thoughts?

Here are some other works of art that I’ve added to my shop:

Artists’ Books on Etsy

February 2, 2017 § 2 Comments

Here at the Frick Fine Arts Library we pride ourselves on our artists’ books collection. For those of you who may not know what an artist book is, be my guest in explaining them! Each one is unique, sometimes made in editions like prints, sometimes “printed” by a press, other times not, cataloged in the library like books with a call number, often displayed in museums as art objects behind glass – each one may look, feel, or even sound different from the next (queue Keith Smith’s string book).

A few brave and creative souls have started selling their artists’ books on Etsy. I found these recently and thought I’d share!
