We are hopeful that they will make our site even more attractive to viewers than before and only increase the growing popularity of art textiles, baskets and fiber sculpture.
Wilton, CT (Vocus) September 9, 2010
Art promotion firm browngrotta arts unveiled its fully revamped website, http://www.browngrotta.com, this week. The new site is easier to navigate and view on mobile devices and shopping is simpler for those in the US and abroad.
The firm’s website, browngrotta.com, was already a destination site for art consultants, interior designers, collectors and practitioners. The Daily Art Muse has called the website “a treasure trove of information on art textiles and fiber sculpture, featuring more than 1,000 images, links to video, blogs and podcasts, perspectives on art, artists, collecting and criticism” that offers an “eye-popping virtual tour of the fiber arts world.”
The reworked site enhances that experience, offering visitors a host of ways to find art that meets their needs. Viewers can use the internal Google search feature or can search by artist name, or by geographic area, including Japan, Scandinavia and the UK, or by type of art, including baskets and sculpture or art for the wall. New to the site are two sections: Secondary Market, which currently includes work by 20 artists including Magdalena Abakanowicz and John McQueen, and New This Week, featuring just-arrived art and art events.
The site includes news about international exhibitions, museum acquisitions and artist awards. For the trade there are sections on Presentation Assistance, Virtual Placement and Commissions. There are also links to international artist and museum videos, interviews and podcasts which complement browngrotta’s social media presence on Facebook and the, firm’s blog, arttextstyle.
“The changes to browngrotta.com have been many months in the making,” explains Tom Grotta, president of browngrotta arts. “We are hopeful that they will make our site even more attractive to viewers than before and only increase the growing popularity of art textiles, baskets and fiber sculpture.”
