Wallspace Exchange LLC ("Wallspace”) is based upon the theory that on a Saturday night a restaurant, bar or hotel lobby will have a greater audience to see an artist's work than the traditional route. On average, a couple going to a nice restaurant for dinner will have more time to spend viewing the artist's paintings. The incentives for the artist and business owner are aligned.
Wallspace helps facilitate fine art sales for artists through the medium of business owners throughout the world. Restaurants, Hotels, Bars, Spas, Salons, Retail Stores, Cafes and Airport Terminals are an avenue for artists to sell their artwork while gaining a new customer base.
Business owners use Wallspace to generate an additional source of income while supporting the art community. Business owners benefit by receiving a commission when someone purchases a piece of art while at the same time updating the interior of their walls. In return, the artist gains greater exposure and generates more sales.
Wallspace gives the business owner and artist flexibility to negotiate by listing deal term preferences on each member's profile. A business owner can visit an artist profile page to determine which artists work would be a good fit for their business interior.
Each artist/business owner can upload up to ten images to their profile page or show their website. When a business owner locates a piece of art they would like for their wall, they simply send a private message directly to the artist. In addition, an artist can send a private message to a business owner to get their artwork shown on the business owner's walls.
Artists or businesses may elect to use an Art Broker who acts as an Agent to represent them, gain access, scout or source supply in return for a commission. The business or artist may want to use an Art Broker from Wallspace Exchange to handle the negotiations, scouting, and logistics for the paintings.
An Art Broker may represent a client such as a restaurant or hotel that can bring in certain types of artwork the client is looking for. Also, the Art Broker may represent an artist and help place their artwork on walls of several different types of businesses. In return for the work done by the Art Broker, upon sale of the painting they will receive a commission.
Artists and Businesses have the option to upgrade to a Premium Membership for additional exposure. Wallspace does not act as agent for either artist or business owner but merely as a facilitator. Wallspace breaks away from the traditional art world model.
