Original art grips the imagination
If you've ever had a desire to own a piece of original art for your home, now you can! If you thought that original art was just for the rich and famous, think again!
Owning originals is a trend that's set to increase in the next few years as the quantity of artworks available to the general public through high-street galleries and online stores increases. Artists have been quick to jump on board, with many more opportunities for them to market and sell their work than before.
Gordon Smith, Director of new online showroom, artgallery.co.uk, says "People all over the country are discovering the joy of owning totally original art, either as a beautiful decoration for the living room, or for investment reasons, or just as a conversation piece. Affordable art really is here to stay."
The Kingston-based firm is helping by allowing artists and art-fans to connect online. The service, which is free to artists, displays artworks for sale and allows customers to browse and buy from the comfort of their living room. With full details of each work including mounting and size, together with biographies of the artists, there's plenty to see.
What's more each artwork has an artist's eye close-up that is so detailed you can even see the grain of the canvas. Artgallery.co.uk is on the lookout for talented local artists, who are professional or have exhibited. Recent art graduates and students are also welcome. Contact artgallery.co.uk for further details.
