ArtShine

Let your art shine at Sydney showcase

Artists and creative entrepreneurs in Sydney are to be given a unique opportunity to showcase and sell their products on a dedicated art platform to retailers and wholesalers.

The ArtSHINE Showcase is a workspace within the newly-created CoSydney art hub that takes the stress and hassle out of promoting and highlighting new art products to the wider art-retailing industry.

The creation of the first dedicated exhibition space for artists is part of a raft of innovations being created at the CoSydney forum, founded by Vinh Van Lam and Stuart Horrex.

Over four floors, CoSydney, located in the Chippendale Creative Precinct, on Blackfriars Street, Sydney, has an art gallery, a workshop/creativity space, and a market/coworking space, offering a range of services for creative professionals.

Vinh and Stuart already represent a number of artists and designers to promote and sell their products.

So this Showcase is a natural evolution within the business to help new artists connect with their ideal clients in the retail and wholesale sectors

Vinh said: “We know that creative people hate doing the selling of their products, chasing customers and thinking up public relations campaigns to get their products out there.

“From our experiences, the biggest challenge for a new player in the market is to find ideal clients, and a place where they can sell and promote their products. Many find it extremely difficult to approach and convince retailers and wholesalers.”

He added: “We already do that for a lot of arts-based professionals. This allows them to focus on their art and creative talents. We take the hassle out of selling and help them connect with the ideal client, retailer or wholesaler.”

He added the idea of the Showcase would enable artists to promote their products at the ArtShine Gallery and to road test their product before sinking their hard-earned savings into taking the product to a more commercial level.

“It’s like their own showroom without the cost and burden of setting up their shop front,” he said. “With a passion for supporting independent artists, we can take care of the rest.”

The Showcase will also enable customers to meet artists and designers behind the products.

CoSydney also hosts a monthly market showcasing the best art products, enabling artists and designers get the right public exposure, while promoting and selling their products in one space.
