Oyin Charles, founder of Art Hive Online, announced that the new curated online art gallery has formed an alliance for 2015 Artsplosure artists to be featured on http://www.arthiveonline.com. Through June 2016, for each online sale of paintings, photography and other 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional artwork produced by 2015 Artsplosure artists, Art Hive Online will give a percentage of the proceeds to Artsplosure. This collaboration offers the 2015 Artsplosure artists access to a wider art buying audience online beyond the Artsplosure event.
Artsplosure artists have the opportunity to be highlighted at http://www.arthiveonline.com in a number of ways. In the “Connect” section, the website features artist interviews, video and audio elements and photo slide shows to give viewers a more intimate experience of an artists’ work. The “Select” section of the website offers Artsplosure artists the ability to upload galleries for visitors to browse and purchase their works of art. The “Collect” section is a virtual resource center where visitors learn expert tips on art collecting including making sound financial investments, art history, art composition, art in the home and how to care for art.
“This is such a ‘win-win-win’ for the artists, Artsplosure and Art Hive Online!” says Charles. “Artists can get more exposure through the online venue, Artsplosure benefits from each sale, and Art Hive Online has the opportunity to represent these amazing artists.”
Artsplosure – the Raleigh Arts Festival - will take place May 15-17 in downtown Raleigh, NC. Since its inception in 1980, Artsplosure has entertained and inspired hundreds of thousands of people, introducing them to underrepresented artists and performances. Every aspect of the festival is curated with an eye toward presenting quality art. 2015 marks the first year that the festival is three days and has the Art Market and live music stages on Fayetteville Street.
2015 Artsplosure artists can visit http://www.arthiveonline.com to learn more and sign up to be featured on the site.
