 Gone are the days where you nip down to your local art gallery to get your hands on some wonderful works of art. Now you can do it from the comfort of your own home. All you need is access to a computer and an internet connection. There are several benefits to buying art online. Let’s run through some of them!
For many people, the whole experience is much better. Sure, you can head to your local art gallery. If you are an art enthusiast, then you may enjoy that. However, many people find that the sales people in art galleries tend to be quite pushy. It can make the whole process daunting. Online, you can browse at your leisure. There is nobody forcing you to do something. Of course, you can browse when it is convenient too. When you shop online, you can buy your artwork no matter what time of day it is! With a High Street art gallery, you need to wait until it is open, and these opening hours may clash with your working hours!
Buying online is often cheaper too. Brick and mortar art galleries have some large overheads involved with them. Seriously large overheads. These costs are added into the price of the art you buy. If you shop online, there are fewer costs for the online tore. This means that they are able to sell their art at lower prices. Often, prints online will be cheaper than if you headed to your local art gallery and purchased the same print.
One of our major benefits of purchasing online is that you have more options of artwork available. This means that it is going to be easier to find art that resonates with you. This can be tough to find if you go to your local art dealer as they will be limited to just a few pieces. Here are a few reasons as to why the selection is bigger online, even if you head to a single site:
    The online store does not need to worry about displaying the artwork. They just need a photograph online and that is it. This boosts the amount of art they can display as they do not need to worry about space.
    Many top online art dealers allow artists to list their own pieces. This means that the art dealer acts as an intermediary between the artist and the buyer. The art dealer does not even need to keep the piece in stock!
    Artists are notoriously bad at marketing themselves. Even the most popular artists remain selling their products at a local basis. There are plenty of fantastic artists out there that you may not have heard of. Selling online gives them a new platform. You will be able to see artwork that you would not have stumbled across out there in the ‘wild’, mainly because the stores have no contact with the artist. In the cases they do, they may not feel that their art is not commercial enough and refuse to give it gallery space.
