Fine Art America





I just came across a website called Fine Art America where many artists add their art into their marketplace. FineArtAmerica.com is a social network and e-commerce marketplace for photographers, visual artists, art galleries, and fine art collectors.  Visitors to FineArtAmerica.com can choose from over 1.5 million pieces of original artwork including paintings, sculptures, drawings, mixed media, jewelry, and more!  Many of these originals are also available as fine art prints-on-demand.

FineArtAmerica.com is a powerful promotional tool for artists and art galleries due to it's extensive integration of geo-location technology.  Each visitor to FineArtAmerica.com is geographically located by IP address, and then the pages of FineArtAmerica.com are individually tailored to that location.  This feature does an outstanding job of prominently displaying local artists, local galleries, upcoming local events, local job openings, and more.  The feature is unique among fine art websites and fosters a sense of community amongst the members of the site.  It also encourages something completely unique - the purchasing of fine art originals.  If a fine art collector can drive down the road and actually meet with a local artist and view his or her work, that collector is much more likely to spend several hundred dollars or several thousand dollars on an original.

I've decided to add my dog greeting cards into Fine Art America. So, please stop by my place within Fine Art America. When you stop by you'll also see that they offer canvas prints, framed prints and art prints.
