Something for artists, art lovers and art newcomers

Art Pistol is a new online art gallery that also runs pop-up gallery shows and a commercial art consultancy.  This December will see their first 2 pop-up gallery shows opening in Glasgow that will put artists in front of different audiences in new environments.  We couldn’t get any more info for you just yet, but be assured that they are working with some big names you all know.  It’s not too late to get involved with these shows, see below, plus they will continue on a more regular basis and visit other areas next year too.

The business, launched this year by 2002 Glasgow School of Art graduates Ali Smith and Suzie Carter, provides a flexible platform for undiscovered, emerging and established UK based artists from all disciplines to sell their work.  Art Pistol recently made Shell’s ‘Hot 40′ List for the most innovative new businesses in the UK as a result.  It is about creating an exciting collection of work that appeals to all tastes and budgets so that all artists, art lovers and people that are new to buying art can get involved.

They are proud to have initially based the gallery around local talent, but equally proud to now work with over 200 artists from across the UK.  They can profile more artists because they’re not restricted by space, which makes their commission very low and brings down the cost of artwork as they don’t have fixed business overheads for gallery space and so on.

Artists can sign-up here to submit work to the online gallery, which could also earn you an invite to participate in the pop up shows.  Christmas is a great opportunity for artists to expose their work to a whole new market in people looking for gifts, so all submissions are invited and you don’t need to be based in Glasgow to get involved.  If you’re not an artist but would like to be on their mailing list and get the latest info you can subscribe here.

If you would like to discuss your submission, potential pop up space, consultancy work, buying art or simply ask a question then email or call 0141 416 1232.
