Art Vault Signs on 100 Galleries – Brief Article
TORONTO–The Art Vault Limited, a retailer of fine art, has signed up 100 top art galleries across North America that are consigning works of art to its Web site at www.artvault.com. Launched on June 4th with 30 galleries, the company now offers hundreds of works of art, ranging in price from $650 to $120,000.
“A great deal of our success with these leading galleries can be attributed to the access our Web site gives them to the global market,” said Marilyn Burnett, c.e.o. of the Art Vault. “We provide our gallery associates with a cost-free, no risk international sales and marketing vehicle and exposure to a worldwide audience.”
The company’s site gives visitors the opportunity to join virtual tours of its partner galleries that are located across the continent from Mexico City, Atlanta, Chicago, New Orleans, New York City to Houston, Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. Visitors can also see enlarged images of the galleries’ works for sale, view the details of the works, put them into different room settings and view the works with framing and matting.
The Art Vault will continue to sign up North American art galleries throughout the fall before moving its development efforts to the U.K. and Europe this winter. The company will also continue to build its education section and hold its first auction and online exhibition this fall.
