Our aim is to create work for professional artists.
The professional-artist.co.uk is a privately funded social enterprise, we offer all invited artists six images and a short biography with a direct link to their own website.
We are a fast developing online gallery and will apply all our experience and skills to drive worldwide traffic to the website. We will use a combination of search engine optimisation, social media marketing, and paid advertising. This combined with email broadcasts will create high visitor numbers.
The project has sourced private and entrepreneurial grants to develop the initiative.
You will receive a first class portfolio which you are welcome to use for your own marketing purposes, a direct link back to your website and a monthly newsletter with all the latest exhibitions and news from the sector
You will be part of a global artists gallery and we will purchase art from members to exhibit and sell to further promote the online gallery. We will present work to interested parties and when called upon negotiating on your behalf.
Yes locally we are in negotiation for a dual use of a heritage centre to install artwork from several of our members; we also intend to run high-quality competitions for members combined with an e-commerce print shop. We would dearly like to set up an originals shop in the future, this is dependent on further funds being allocated to the project.
The website was created and launched in October 2018 and still has to undergo further construction. We have over 120 portfolios to add and we intend to attract over 7000 by December 2019. We have attended several exhibitions including the recent Parallax art fair in Manchester and the feedback from artists has been positive.
Of course, we are here to help. Duplication of images and a short biography from your website can be done free of charge.
No, we do not charge for inclusion and the artists have the right to withdraw their portfolio at any given time. We operate an ethical business and adhere to all the current GDPR governance laws relating to marketing and data protection.
Yes, we can upload a portfolio for you however we do not offer links back other than to personal websites.
By January 2019 we will have a Facebook page, twitter feed, Instagram, Youtube and LinkedIn account all set up to help members stay abreast of the latest developments. In joining we will add you to our mailing list so that you never miss a newsletter or item of interest. We have a full-time researcher online who will provide details of all forthcoming events competitions exhibitions local, national and international.
