About Art La Now
A DIRECTORY OF ARTISTS AND ART GALLERIES IN AND AROUND LOS ANGELES. ARTISTS ONLINE EXHIBITIONS, ART NEWS AND LOCAL ART GALLERY INFORMATION.
ArtLAnow.com is a membership website whose purpose is to showcase and promote original art by artists of all kinds living and working in the greater Los Angeles area.
Many artists have personal art websites that act as online portfolios but, in truth, they do not attract much traffic from search engines. Having built and published a website, an artist then needs to spend a lot of time and money on optimization in order to generate interest.
In general, bigger websites, that contain more content, bring in more online traffic. Art lovers and potential buyers like choice and prefer to browse websites where they will find large numbers of works suiting their tastes.
We hope to build artLAnow.com into the largest collective website for artists in the greater Los Angeles area.
By grouping together artists living in near proximity, artLAnow.com hopes to encourage the local artistic community to communicate ideas, to pass on helpful information to fellow artists and to publish news and events that will stimulate public interest in the local art scene.
Many art collectors are more susceptible to support artists living nearby. Buying locally allows them to keep up with new works in progress and to maintain a closer contact with their preferred artists by attending gallery exhibitions, art fairs and even by visiting the artists’ studio. All of this is easier to achieve when the artists and the buyers are located within easy driving distance.
We at artLAnow.com intend to develop our website as dynamically as possible so that the content, both artistic and written, will attract as many visitors as possible without compromising quality.
Artists may include personal website addresses for linking + telephone numbers + email addresses for direct sales.
artLAnow.com does not take a commission on sales and is not responsible for any transactions or agreements that transpire between any artist exhibiting work on the website and any purchaser visiting our website. artLAnow.com will publish content as it is sent by artists and is not liable for any errors or false claims.
artlanow is designed so that sellers and buyers can have direct contact in order to conclude any business arrangements. The parties are encouraged to discuss all elements of any transaction directly.
