Tierra Verde, Florida (PressExposure) August 20, 2009 -- Who: Brian Wiltshire and Susan Taylor, Residents of Tierra Verde and St. Petersburg, Florida What: New Business: Online Art Gallery: Discover Original Art website: http://www.discoveroriginalart.com
Starting a business in this economy may seem to be risky but Brian Wiltshire (Tierra Verde) and Susan Taylor (St. Petersburg), both art connoisseurs and collectors, have confidence that people still love and appreciate fine art and want to be able to collect affordable original art and photographs. Discover Original Art is an online art business they started first to represent several good friends who are exceptional artists being successful within their geographical areas but lacking global visibility. Out of that grew the idea to start the online art gallery.
Discover Original Art is dedicated to being the link, via the internet, between artists and art collectors. The goal is to broaden the opportunity for artists to sell original art; and for potential collectors, seeking exceptional art, to add original works of art to their personal galleries.
The site is easy to maneuver and the collector can view paintings and photographs and can easily order a beautiful piece of art. The art works may be rendered in many different media, dimensions and price ranges. No longer does the collector have to go to many galleries but can select art from the comfort of home or office. The artist can show art in an online gallery without the hassles of transporting artwork to one site. And there is the convenience of being on the worldwide web!
Hoping to have the gallery online by April 2, the two partners soon found how complicated a good website that is secure yet accessible is to design. But they persevered and the site is now up and running! They are proud that their site is different. âWe wanted people to arrive at the site and feel as if they were entering a real gallery so we used a gallery store front as the home page.â
Local and national artists have registered and more artists are being added weekly. The partners encourage everyone to check their website frequently for updates, blogs, and additional artists and artwork.
