About Artfare

For artists, Artfare provides services that allow them to build a loyal and active base of patron collectors. For patrons, Artfare unlocks access to a carefully‑curated group of artists, compelling artworks, and unique experiences that facilitate deeper connections with the artwork they buy.

Our Vision

Our vision is a connected global network of thriving local art communities.

Our Mission

Our mission is to empower artists to develop and cultivate patron relationships independently by providing them with the tools they need to grow and sustain their practice—without the exclusive need of gallery representation.


We believe there’s no substitution for the physical experience of art. As such, we host events and curate exhibitions, both independently and in collaboration with institutions, non‑profits, and museums, featuring Artfare artists. Patrons who attend our events or exhibitions can easily follow the artists they discover on the Artfare app, and conveniently purchase their favorite works on our streamlined and secure platform.
