The Art Storefronts Organization

Connecting Art Collectors with Trusted Art Sellers

Buying art online is more convenient than ever, but it presents a huge problem: how can you be sure you're buying from a legitimate art seller? 

The Art Storefronts Organization acts as a trusted third-party between art collectors and artists. With a vigorous vetting process and an easy-to-use complaint system, you can be confident that an artist displaying our Trusted Art Seller badge can be trusted with your money and information. 

What's the badge mean?

Found on artists' websites and at art shows and galleries, the "Trusted Art Seller" badge is your signal that an artist is in Good Standing with the Art Storefronts Organization.

Verified Art Seller

A "Trusted Art Seller" badge on a website verifies that the art is being sold to you directly from the creator themselves.

Vetted by Art Storefronts

Not just anyone can join Art Storefronts. All of our members have been vetted on the phone by our team during the interview process. 


If something goes wrong, you can submit a complaint directly to us, allowing us to take action including disabling an artist's badge or even their entire store.

Safe Transactions

All transactions processed through Art Storefronts are SSL encrypted to the highest industry standards.


Only legitimate, verified art businesses are able to display our Trust Badge on their website - allowing you to shop with confidence knowing that (A) the art seller is exactly who they say they are and (B) they have an established track record of fulfilling orders just like yours to happy collectors. 


Artists and photographers that choose to pay our membership fee are investing in their own reputation and credibility. As a result, you can feel confident in spending your dollars on their work, knowing that they will not only be there for you should you need them, but that their work is more likely to grow in value over time.
