You can experience the art world from the comfort of your home, office, or wherever you take your lap top or PDA.
The selection is enormous and diverse. Online galleries do not need to rent physical space so they are not limited. They can offer a wide range of art by artists. Online there is room for the largest sculpture and painting as well as smaller pieces. Media can range from metal to oils, to ceramics, to anything the creative artists can imagine. What gallery can you go to and find so many diverse artists, different media, so many pieces of art? Where else can you find artists from all over the world in one place?
You can browse to your heart’s content at any hour of the day and night. No one follows you around, bugging you with unwanted chatter and details! You can focus on art that appeals to you and challenges you. You can take the time to visualize it in your space.
You can find many art galleries online. However, if you are investing in art you should buy original art. The prices range from hundreds to thousands and tens of thousands of dollars. Often you can buy an original piece of art for the same price you may pay for a print. If you can afford only one piece then buy original art.
When buying art:
- Make sure you know the size and medium.
- If you love a painting, my recommendation is that you use butcher paper or newspaper and cut out the size of the piece you have fallen in love with. Hang it on the wall to make sure the piece fits.
- If you love a piece of sculpture or ceramics or anything that is three-dimensional, make sure you have the space.
- Most online galleries do guarantee satisfaction. Make sure you use one that does.
