Introducing Amazon Art

Amazon.com, Inc. today announced the launch of Amazon Art ( www.amazon.com/art), a marketplace that gives customers direct access to more than 40,000 works of fine art from over 150 galleries and dealers. At launch, Amazon Art will showcase artworks from more than 4,500 artists. The store is one of the largest online collections of original and limited edition artwork for purchase directly from galleries and dealers. The new store features easy-to-use discovery tools to help open the art world to customers and offers detailed information about the works of art. Customers can explore fine art from galleries of all sizes, including Paddle8 in New York, Holden Luntz in Miami, McLoughlin Gallery in San Francisco, Modernbook in San Francisco and Catherine Person Gallery in Seattle.

“We are excited to bring one of the largest selections of fine art direct from galleries to our customers. Amazon Art gives galleries a way to bring their passion and expertise about the artists they represent to our millions of customers,” said Peter Faricy, vice president for the Amazon Marketplace. “We’re thrilled to bring the excitement and emotional connection of art to our customers.”

“Paddle8 Editions sells works by internationally renowned artists to benefit the world's leading non-profits and cultural institutions. Through our new relationship with Amazon, we can dramatically expand our audience while simultaneously providing access to affordable, limited-edition works by some of the most significant artists working today,” said Osman Khan, COO and founding partner of Paddle8. “We’re excited to list our artwork on Amazon to make it more convenient for our existing clientele, and to help us reach new clientele.”

“We operate a wonderful fine art gallery, yet realize that the models for dealing in contemporary arts have evolved in this digital age and ecommerce is a channel to reach more clientele. We are excited about sharing our talented artists with Amazon's global customers and pleased to be part of the launch of the Amazon Art store,” said Holden Luntz, owner and founder of Holden Luntz Gallery. “Amazon is an innovative leader in exploring new creative ventures and connecting the world. They have consistently put the buyer first and built a reputation for integrity and high quality.”
