the ny times ran a fantastic article this morning on a new online gallery program created by charles saatchi. i've always admired saatchi's love for student work and he seems to be doing well by the students who've made him a lot of money over the years. he's created a new website called "stuart" (it stands for student-art) that lets student artists around the world create a free myspace-style page where they can post their work and sell it directly to customers without a gallery fee or rep cut. i love love love that he's letting artists sell their work without a fee and am curious to see how the site progresses. it's a potential cash cow for saatchi but he says he wants to leave the site alone for a year and see what happens (he's not buying any work from the site for at least a year). i can't wait to see how it works out- already gallery owners and buyers are discovering phenomenal new artists and i think it's a fantastic way for young artists to start selling their work and communicating with other student artists across the globe. what a fun idea...click here for more info (and to set up a free page) and here for the original times article.

wow, I wish I was back at art college now - When I was at Winchester School of Art (1990-1994) I didn't even know how to turn a computer on, let alone anything else! Stuart is such a great idea, I'm really quite jealous!

The Saatchi has had an artist gallery called "YOUR GALLERY" section for a year or so now, but more targeted at professional artists. http://www.saatchi-gallery.co.uk/yourgallery/

I prefer their layout for "YOUR GALLERY" than what they have created for "STUART" An annoying feature of this site compared to "YOUR GALLERY" is that there are size restrictions to the images that you can upload. I opened a STUART account, but decided to stick with my existing YOUR GALLERY page instead. The YOUR GALLERY page allows you to nicely show your resume and bio. A downside is that they only allow you to post 8 pieces at a time.

Also, they have a YOUR GALLERY section exclusively for Art Galleries and Dealers. http://www.saatchi-gallery.co.uk/dealers_galleries/

Another excellent site for emerging artists is Terminus1525, a Canadian site, but still open to non-Canadian artists.
