Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) September 4, 2003
Although there are hundreds of thousands of art groups, schools, guilds, museums and galleries in the United States and Canada, itÂs often difficult to find art organizations within your own community or on your travels. A new online directory, ArtChain.com, provides free searchable listings to help people find and connect with art groups.
Whether you are looking for a place to take painting classes, a gallery displaying contemporary sculpture, or a place to rent studio space, ArtChainÂs powerful search features allow you to quickly zero in on appropriate groups. The directory is backed by a database containing each organizationÂs location, art media, cultural focus, services provided, and contact information.
Many online directories are out-of-date and filled with broken links. Internet industry sources estimate that roughly 30% of online ÂlinksÂ go bad each year, as websites move, change, or shut down. In order to keep its directory up to date, ArtChain regularly confirms details of listings with each art group, and runs an automated link-check process.
Listings in the directory are free for art groups in the United States and Canada. In addition, the website provides a growing list of resources and services for art groups. The site is supported by advertisers and affiliate programs.
Art groups can sign up for a listing in the directory by visiting http://www.artchain.com.
