For an artist, the internet is your best friend and your worst enemy. It is a great place to network and sell art, but it’s also a place where artists can get caught up in bad sales and taken advantage of. The internet also houses thousands of opportunities for artists, but who has the time to search through all of those web pages when there is artwork to be made? Luckily, there is an all-encompassing site that helps artists not only network and sell their art but also compiles a list of amazing artistic opportunities.
So, what is this magical site? It’s called Artwork Archive, a cloud-based art community built for artists, by artists. It is the perfect site to help manage your artwork and help collectors find amazing art.
