At Art in the Neighbourhood, we have a basic philosophy, "Keep it small, and keep it simple". We hope to share our art with as many people as possible at the most affordable prices.
We were born out of a wish to bring local art to our community and not make it an overwhelming or out-of-reach experience. When we were unable to do that in person due to COVID-19, we found ourselves happily spreading our joy to a much wider audience via the Internet. Seems like a bonus in unprecedented times of change and challenge!
Building a virtual gallery was our first step in moving forward and now we have adding the option of shopping directly on the website from "Shops" hosted by about 3/4 of our artists. Our website will remain a significant feature and hopefully we will get back to our semi-annual in-person shows as well. So keep in touch.
Protecting Your Information
All information in your account is strictly protected and won't be shared, in any way with anyone, outside of our art group. We use the security measures imbedded in our website and provided by Wix and Paypal.
Our Artists Selling Directly to You
All purchases of listed pieces are made from each artist selling; whether you contact the artist directly to arrange a purchase or use the shopping cart to complete your purchase on-line. Feel free to contact anyone of us. Use the email button on each artist's page to contact them directly. Then you can ask questions and see more photos of the piece you are interested in. As artists, we love to know someone is interested in our work. Our pieces are often like our babies; we get attached.
Bargaining is a No, No!
Please don't bargain with us over our prices. We put some thought into our prices and often undersell ourselves as it is. The prices throughout the gallery are much lower than purchasing from any third party venue; whether it be an actual gallery or an e-commerce site such as Etsy or Shopify. Using those agents adds cost to our prices; sometimes upwards of 50%. At Art in the Neighbourhood, the artist is charging you only for the price of the art (plus shipping and handling if you choose that). As a result you are saving anywhere from 15-50%.
The art gallery is best viewed on a computer or a tablet to get the best viewing experience. You can zoom in and see photos up close. In this instance, bigger is better! Have fun browsing and shopping!
