Our goal is to help artists, galleries, collectors, arts organizations and other creative professionals build a solid business infrastructure through ArtSmart. A strong infrastructure is key and once you have it in place, you have the control and freedom to get back to doing what you really enjoy. It's not easy to follow a creative path especially in these uncertain financial times. ArtSmart helps you achieve these goals with our affordable, online art management application, and our business consulting for artists, galleries and art institutions.
