We are Artfare
For artists, Artfare provides services that allow them to build a loyal and active base of patron collectors. For patrons, Artfare unlocks access to a carefully‑curated group of artists, compelling artworks, and unique experiences that facilitate deeper connections with the artwork they buy.
Our vision is a connected global network of thriving local art communities.
Our mission is to empower artists to develop and cultivate patron relationships independently by providing them with the tools they need to grow and sustain their practice—without the exclusive need of gallery representation.
On the Artfare platform, patrons can explore and purchase available works by a carefully‑curated, diverse group of professional artists, engage with the artists directly, and experience artwork in person in New York.
