The Beholder

Aug 16, 2006

San Francisco graphic designer Suzanne Shade started The Beholder so that people could find and buy art outside of the gallery system, and so that artists could connect with a large audience via the web.

The Beholder includes paintings, photography, drawings, and mixed media. The art on the site is created by both full-time artists and those who hold day jobs. Artists are from SF and also Chicago, New York, and other areas.

Other great things about The Beholder? Prices range from $100 to $5,000, with most pieces priced between $100 and $500. It has a 20 percent commission, so that artists receive the majority of the proceeds. And there's a seven-day trial period so that you can live with the art before totally committing to something you'll see every single day.

Two of the artists, Michelle Blade and Katy Horan, are showing this month at Ritual Coffee Roasters on Valencia.
