Active Artists Report Sales of Work on Barebrush

New York, NY -- Barebrush.com announces member artists who have recently reported sales of work appearing on barebrush. The mission of barebrush is to provide an exciting venue where artists may show their work at resonable cost and connect with dealers and collectors.



The goal of barebrush to to help artists take control of their selling efforts. I found in my research, prior to starting barebrush, that art dealers have a stong preference for artists who will provide them with sales leads, that is people interested in their work. Barebrush is designed with precisely this in mind.



Many artists cannot sell or "close" as they say in sales -- but no matter, that is the job of the art dealer. If you can promote your art and get people interested in your work, you will have a better chance of finding a dealer. Your dealer can sell for you -- but in today's fast paced world, the dealer often needs the artist to find the initial leads -- until sales momentum builds.



Congratulations all!

Here is a note from a barebrush artist on how she uses the site to promote her art:




“It is very useful to have a personal Barebrush blog as a vehicle for displaying thumbnails of my artwork, I’ve found. Although I’ve never had a “cold call,” that is, an inquiry from a total stranger who just happened to find my work on the Barebrush website, it has been a very welcome tool.

Whenever I meet or see someone who says, “I’d love to see your work,” I give them the link to my blog. And, I keep a “Barebrush Viewers” list in my e-mail’s “Address Book,” which now has nearly 100 names.

As I upload new work, upon confirmation that it has been posted, I then notify them all of that fact, and invite them to have a look. At the very least, it is a nice boost to have a number of complimentary messages then appear.

Anyone who prefers not to look, or acknowledge the announcement, is welcome to delete my message as spam. Nonetheless, I keep ‘em coming.

Recently, one of the recipients of my notice, a man I haven’t seen in some time, wrote back to say that he’d seen my site, and was intrigued by one of the images. I then invited him to come to my apartment to see that piece in person. To my delight, he purchased it, along with another drawing. This was gratifying, and I hope the experience is repeated.” (JM, NY)


Does it pay to have a dealer if you can post the art on the internet and sell it direct? The answer is a resounding YES! The participation of a dealer in your art career is a validation of your artistic merit and relevance in the art world. And in my experience, dealers prize energetic artists who provide leads to people interested in their work.



Barebrush advertising efforts are focused on the collector (the Gallery Guide) and the media to impress the collector ( MMD Newswire). The artists lead the way, interesting bold collectors and increasing the popularity of the art of the n*de. The dealers follow as they see viability of the site to their own business and their ability to sell this art .

Expose your n*des on barebrush, dedicated to the the art of the n*de. Promote yourself, promote your art.

Let barebrush know about your sales. barebrush takes no commission unless actively involved in your selling process.

May your best efforts multiply and your troubles be divided. Best of luck, Ilene
