What is Fine Art World?
Fine Art World is a place that allows the artist, photographer or gallery a low cost, easy to use, and professional looking way to exhibit and sell their works on a global stage and gives the collector or visitor the opportunity to view or purchase fine art from around the world; all from the comforts of their living room or office. Working hard to accommodate the various needs of the entire art community, we have tailored our membership packages to fit viewers, collectors, artists, photographers and galleries alike.
Who are the Owners?
Fine Art World was born from experience. We, the owners, are either artists, or have or currently own "brick and mortar" art related businesses in printing, publishing, licensing and gallery ownership. We have been representing artists for over a combined 60 years.
I am a collector, why should I become a member?
You can become a Free Viewer Member and once registered, you will be able to access services that include the ability to purchase artwork, receive news and information about your favorite artists, and communicate with other members of the art community through email or community forums.
I am an artist or gallery, why should I become a member?
- A Professional Website - We at Fine Art World have spent thousands of man hours
looking at websites and talking to artists, galleries, and industry leaders as to how
to exhibit artwork properly on the internet. The result is a website with a look that
we believe any member would be proud to exhibit their artwork.
- Low Cost Website - As many members already know, it can sometimes cost
hundreds, but more likely, thousands of dollars to produce your own website.
Fine Art World offers you a personal website for a membership fee that is in most
cases lower than the cost to update and maintain your preexisting website.
- Easy to Use - Not a Techie? If you know how to e-mail or surf the internet,
you should be able to work with our powerful and easy to use tools for uploading images
and creating your personal website. If you still need help, you can contact our customer
service agents that will be more than happy to walk you through any process.
- Personal FAW Domain Name / Domain Forwarding - With the exception of the Free
Viewer or Gallery Basic memberships, all members will be given a unique web address (URL)
(example http://www.johnsmith.fineartworld.com) that you can send out to friends, family
or clients that will allow them to link up directly with your personal site. If you decide
to use Fine Art World as your exclusive presence on the internet, we will also give you the
information necessary to transfer or point any already existing Domain Name (example
www.johnsmith.com) to your personal website on Fine Art World.
- Sell on the Internet (Or Not) - Members can use their personal galleries as a
reference or informational site, or if they choose, they can take advantage of the safe
and secure online marketplace provided by Fine Art Word. All proceeds from the sale of
artworks listed on our site go directly to the member's PayPal accounts that they set up.
There are NO ADDITIONAL COSTS OR COMMISSIONS to take advantage of this service.
- Sell to the Trade - Our goal at Fine Art World is to facilitate an online venue
that allows members of the arts community to deal with each other directly. After a stringent
review process, gallery members will be able to take advantage of our Trade Program that
allows them to receive special pricing directly from the artists or other gallery members.
- Member Benefits - In addition to our easy to use tools for buying and selling
art, we offer to our paying members a Members Benefit package that will allow them to be
successful in the business of fine art. Working with strategic partners such as Fed-Ex,
Budget, Art World News, and others, members will receive discounts on a variety of services
such as insurance, advertising, shipping, travel, and more. With these kinds of benefits
and savings, membership pays for itself.
- Experience of the Owners - For over a combined 60 years, we have been and
continue to work in all aspects of the art industry. Members will be able to tap into our
experience by taking advantage of value added services that include but are not limited
to printing, shipping, framing, co-op advertising, licensing, marketing, sales & accounting.
- Communicate with Other Members of the Art Community - Fine Art World is not
just a marketplace, but a community where the art collector, artisan and gallery can
communicate and exchange ideas with each other. Using the best anti-spam software possible,
members can feel secure in communicating with each other whether by e-mail or through the
