How does it work?

ArtAds.ca is a site where the owner of a work of art can post it to try to sell it.

The seller simply fills out a form, attaches a photograph of the artwork and that's it. If a potential buyer is interested, he can contact the seller directly.

The seller and the buyer are free to negotiate, make an appointment or make other arrangements. ArtAds.ca takes no commission and charges no fees on sales. The seller and the buyer are the only ones responsible for the transactions.
