Arttwo50.com Selling Traditional Paintings

I found this site, which is geared toward selling traditional paintings $250 and under. (I noticed they plan on expanding prices upward in the future.)

Obviously, everyone sells at different price points, but I thought I would show you this in case you may be interested.

Thank you Angel.

But after I've signed up, I found out I can not sell on their site, because they only accept artists based in the United States.

Do we trust them with our bank account information?

I've sold several works here on FAA and also on a site called Original Art Online. I looked at Saatchi but it seems a more contemporary art site than my work. The $250 and under price seems really low and for me it would need to be really small works. Will take a look.

Sorry to hear that Marianna, probably because of shipping costs.

Michelle, it's a new company, but most feedback I see on it is positive.

Yes, 250 is low. If I do it, it will be for smaller pieces too.

Sounds good to me! I may check it out. Would work great for my artwork that is unstretched etc

I believe the rules are, it has to be read to hang.

Maybe I am misinterpreting this but here is a statement on the cover page :If the art is thin and meant to be framed you do not have to include any hardware or frame..???

Eh....I'm a little confused. It says they want it to be ready to hang on arrival.

But then they list these rules.


If the art has structure (i.e. stretched canvas, stained glass, etc.) please attach a wire or appropriate hardware so it can safely be hung.
If the art is thin and meant to be framed you do not have to include any hardware or frame.
If an artist chooses to sell art with a frame, it will be included in the $250 price. Please include the frame in the photo when you upload the artwork.

Maybe it doesn't have to be stretched or on a frame then?

Did you sign up yet? If you have, could you ask customer support?

I never sell my art sold online framed. If you are only selling for $250 framing is ludicrous, at least for me.

No, not yet! I will though...I have been looking for a site that just sells originals...I really wanted to join "Daily Painters"...I love that site...but you need to know someone to get invited..plus I think it is 30.00+ a month...I think to be successful there, you really need to have established followers, I am also considering trying EBAY...just one or two to see what happens...I will update my site when I get it established. Thanks for sharing the link!

I got a reply from them " You can sell stretched or un-stretched canvas with us that are framed or unframed. You will only have limited spaces, so please list whatever pieces you think are most appropriate for you and your work. You'll see when you sign-in and upload that there is description box where we want you to say a little about each piece (inspiration, feelings) and you can also include suggestions about framing vs unframed. Finally, when you click 'tube or box' for shipping, that tells us whether you've got a stretched canvas or an un-stretched / unframed piece that will ship rolled up

Thanks Judy, good to know!

The style of it kind of reminds of etsy...except that it has a cutoff point. Etsy charges for listing too. I don't see charges to list on this site.

Well, major disappointment...I was trying to preview the site and artists profiles before joining.....you cant even do that on your PC...Right now, they are only geared for the Apple IPAD industry...and a app you need to download...I have the google nexus 7, android...so I am "out of luck"! I always prefer using my pc over tablets and smart phones...The email response that I got was that they plan on expanding the product line in the future to include the pc...seems to me it would have been a great place to start!

I don't really like letting them have my banking account,, though a deposit is good. So how safe is this company? Once they get your account, who knows? $250 is pretty low pricing unless you are talking about very small or miniature art.

I have small, unstretched canvas I wanted to sell...11/14 and 16x20..The price points seem good for those items..I like the fact that they partner with usps...and that the shipping is incorporated into the pricing. It makes it convenient and the fact that the market is completely segmented into originals. Also seems they have an app that allows a buyer to view the art on their wall...
.I have observed on Daily Painters that a lot of the artists that do really well, sell less expensive art on panels, unstretched canvas etc. Some are selling for 100.00...Seems to me the artists who offer smaller, and/or less expensive original artwork do most of the selling...I had hoped to find a venue similar...Guess I will wait until they market for the PC...I love my tablet, and my phone....but for processing I much prefer working on a pc..dont like the "restricted" feeling I get on those products.
PS..I was planning, also, on switching over to smaller pastels ...I think this site would have been perfect for this venue too!

Hi Angelina
I want to thank you for the tip regarding the new website Arttwo50.
I joined about a week ago and I've sold a painting. I have plenty of $250 paintings so this is a great venue for me.
Different venues - different audiences. Just trying to reach as many of them as I can.

Thanks again!

Congrats Linda. Care to share what you sold?

Sure
it's a 24" x 36" x 1/2" abstract.
I just now loaded it up to FAA so I can add the link here:

If the link doesn't work, the painting is here http://fineartamerica.com/featured/night-lights-linda-bailey.html
