Buying & selling art online: FineArtAmerica.com

Boot Camp feature for Monday, May 21, 2012

Buying and selling art online.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.  Today, a look at how the Internet has dramatically changed the way art is being bought and sold.   There are plenty of sites, in the business.   One that is attracting lots of artists and customers is FineArtAmerica.com.   How is it different?   CEO Sean Broihier…

“We have living artists and photographers from all over the world who join our Web site, upload their high resolution images to our site.   As soon as they’re uploaded they’re instantly for sale as framed prints, stretched canvases and so on and then buyers who visit our site can browse through all these beautiful images from artists and photographers from all over the world, purchase these products.  We print them, frame them, matte them, package them, ship them, take care of processing the buyers payment and send the profits to the artist.”

Artists set their own pricing.   The search capability on the site simplifies finding what you’re looking for.  Again, the site is FineArtAmerica.com.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
