What are the best websites for artists to showcase their work?

How you present your work as an artist is a major part of running your art business. If you are a serious artist, you are trying to get out there, get known, and encourage people to buy your stuff as well as promote yourself and make money from your creativity.

But how do you do it? Most artists do a really bad job of promoting themselves and they just end up giving up their creative dreams.

Fortunately, there are now a lot of available platforms and websites where artists can showcase their talents and effectively sell their artworks.

Here’s the list of the best websites for every aspiring artist out there;

Wix

If you are looking for a website that’s quick and easy to set up or if you’re not really familiar with other web management systems, then Wix might be a good fit for you. It’s the most basic website builder where you can feature your creativity and choose stunning templates to showcase your work. Their prices start at $5.00 monthly.

SmugMug

SmugMug is a photographers’ favorite. Their pricing and plans are very affordable, starting from $47.88/year. You can upgrade your plans to access some of their advanced personalization and features. They allow artists to upload unlimited photos, print them or sell them.

Squarespace

Squarespace is another great website that artist would love to use. Like Wix, it’s easy to use and the pages are built by adding content blocks where photo galleries, forms, buttons, audio players and more are found. Pricing starts at $12 for personal use and $18 for business use. You can create a stunning portfolio website with a collection of your work of art that you can showcase and sell to a wider audience.
