Calling all art lovers. Take a look this project from Gallerista Chicago – perhaps it might be up your alley…
“Gallerista is a digital platform connecting contemporary artists to potential patrons, collectors and the public at large. The site, galleristachicago.com, is a response to feedback from artists, administrators and collectors alike who are seeking artwork across various mediums, educations and backgrounds. This new platform explores thoughtful and respectful ways to showcase artists and their work, providing profiles to engage and inform collectors, while driving online traffic to artists’ individual websites and the spaces which foster them.
Digitally adapting to the nature of art scenes and an untraditional, multi-faceted market, Gallerista is exploring new channels for artists and audiences to connect. By creating an online space exclusively dedicated to exhibiting artists, fostering community and driving informed consumership, Gallerista aims to promote the ideals of collectorship, reframing the ways in which we purchase art online.”
