A dear friend has started an online art gallery with the intent of curating photographs and have photographers reach out to a discerning audience.
The artist is responsible for pricing his/her own art, printing on archival paper, and delivering it to the patron and retains complete creative control over the process.
The artist obviously retains all rights to his/her images.
The gallery charges a 20% commission on all works sold through the site.
Patrons are free to contact the artist directly to commission works independent of the site. For artists who do not have a web presence, the gallery will make introductions.
A photographer can submit up to 10 images to his gallery. Listing is free, along with a short bio/artists statement.
Currently they are looking for more artists to list on the site. One can apply to the gallery through their online submission form.
The site can be reached here - http://www.piktle.com
Do let me know what you think of the venture. Any suggestions/feedback you might have regarding the site is most appreciated. I will make sure to pass it on to them.
