    Thanks for sharing. Online art galleries are good resources too! Online art communities/galleries are another great way to network, buy, and sell art online. I don’t know if anyone has ever heard of Masterpiece Solutions, the online art gallery, but it’s a comprehensive website where artists and galleries can sell their artwork. This multi-million dollar gallery is changing webpages from to, and with this site change comes with some handy new features, including:

    · Redesigned website
    · Enhanced consumer navigation
    · E-commerce and low-cost lead generation options for galleries
    · New social networking capabilities
    · Google Site Search
    · Comprehensive Integration with Art Gallery and Artist Management Software
    · Merchant Integration

    Hope this proves to be an additional resource for people in terms of promoting their artwork!

    Online art auctions are really playing a vital role in purchasing beautiful art work at very cheap rates and the second option is…

    Paintings by aboriginal artists- Barbara Weir, Gloria Petyarre, Minnie and Galya Pwerle, Susan and Annie Pitjara Hunter. Aboriginal Art Gallery of Utopia artists is owned and operated by Fred Torres. Our Aboriginal Art Gallery in Adelaide stocks an extensive selection of paintings ranging from the unique tourist gift to artworks of significant importance and collectible value.

    Thank you for sharing these beautiful resources list.

    In my view artnet is the only alternative to the major auction houses – which are of course now pretty much all online now… I say buy from the artist!
