West Galleries is a small but thriving community of Yorkshire based artists exhibiting their work mainly online through this website but also through individual and group exhibitions, so when you see an artwork you love, take a look at the artist’s gallery page to find out where they are exhibiting.
Established artists prefer to deal directly with their customers and pay West Galleries a small monthly fee, usually covered by the sale of one artwork, which is why you will find all their contact information within their Gallery pages. New and emerging artists prefer to see if their art sells well before this commitment and so choose to have West Galleries deal with any interest and sales of their artwork. Once they become established they usually move to the fee system and you will be able to deal directly with them.
As an artist myself, I understand the level of work that goes into creating these often amazingly beautiful and inspiring works. I wanted to offer a few artists a place to exhibit their work online
without any hassles or being lost in a site of hundreds of artists – all of whom produce great works but as there are so many it becomes overwhelming for both artists and visitors.There will never be more than 15 or 16 artists on board at any one time.
In this way I hope that visitors who find an artist whom they admire, will always be able to find them quickly and easily and enjoy coming back to view the artist’s latest news and work.
