Welcome to Art Evolution
The creation of art is an attempt at immortality; it is the highest expression of the human condition. - Christopher Talbot, President and Founder, Art Evolution.com
A quick overview of the art business
Almost anyone with a creative streak may call themselves an artist; there are few rules and for the most part the situation is "buyer beware" While there are many reputable galleries and art dealers offering credible artworks, the majority only have general knowledge of the art business. Galleries are typically restricted to representing local artists on consignment. In many cases the artworks are generic and are of questionable value, which casts doubt on the industry as a whole.
Primary issues continue to be: qualifications, credibility, authenticity, value, quality, reliable representation and guarantees.
