Promoting local Artists and Craftsmen
Everything we sell is either produced entirely locally or initially created within the Northeastern Ontario Region.
Manufacturing realities prevent us from completely producing all raw materials, prints and "blanks" for our "house brand" products.
We offer in house photography of artwork and giclee print production, framing our" house" line with reclaimed one of a kind frames.
Our mission is to foster a cooperative and supportive Near Northern Ontario artistic community, allowing our artists to reach markets they were previously unable to access.
We are especially proud to offer our artists a much higher percentage of profit than industry standard because we believe that what is good for our artists is good for us all.
We are also non exclusive. Our artists are free to sell anywhere. If you would like to directly contact any of our artists, we will gladly pass on your information.
"Authenticity": our "house" brand
We produce an extremely high percentage of our in house services ourselves. Sublimation printing, photographic reproduction, high end artistic printing, framing, furniture production, et cetera are done on premise.
This allows us to provide our artists with a range of products they can offer. We do not charge our artists for these services as they are built into our retail prices. We take the financial risks of production in this line.
We also sell finished "one of a kind" items from our artists. These cost us less to sell, so we offer our artists an even higher percentage of the retail profit.
Fine Art America
For items we are incapable of printing locally, we offer selected local artists the ability to print on demand through Fine Art America.
Fine Art America is the world's largest art marketplace and print-on-demand technology company. They have been helping artists sell wall art, home decor, apparel, and other products since 2006.
This allows us to offer you our artists' work on a vast variety of media, including canvas prints, metal prints, posters, acrylic prints, wood prints, tapestries and special items like throw pillows, bath towels and duvet covers in a wide variety of sizes.
