artfully (artfully.ca) is a digital marketplace and community for Canadian artists at all levels of their career to extend their visibility and reach. We connect Canadian artists with a local, national and international audience through our vast email marketing strategies, social media campaigns and advanced SEO.
artfully puts the artists at the centre of the conversation. Artists determine how their work is categorized and displayed on our website. Artists are able to personalize their page with biographical information, artist statements, and descriptions of their work that speak to their practice and artistic vision, giving buyers personal insight into each individual piece.
Beyond being a marketplace, artfully seeks to build a community of interconnectedness that offers ongoing support for artist publicity that is both generative and responsive. In addition to internal promotion in the Canadian arts industry, we include free promotional services on our website and through newsletters such as instructional and informative articles, individual artist interviews, and special artist features. By increasing our avenues for engagement, artfully provides a personalized and insightful experience like no other.
artfully was established on the traditional territories of many nations, including the Anishnaabeg, Haudenosaunee, the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and the Mississaugas of the Credit River, who are the original custodians of the land on which we stand and create. We acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit, and offer our deepest respect and gratitude to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
