In 1991, when 2400 baud modems were the norm, ArtQuest® released an exclusive art bulletin board service known as a BBS. The BBS provided galleries, consultants and dealers a quick way to locate art throughout the art community. In 1993, Michael Fitzpatrick of Reuters Wire Service, wrote "ArtQuest® lets dealers find, buy and sell artwork in a computerized system worthy of Wall Street". By 1994 an extensive web site was designed, not only for galleries and dealers to use, but for everyone and anyone interested in art. Since 1996, ArtQuest® has catered to people from all over the world. Anyone who is interested in buying, selling or collecting art will appreciate the variety of services offered by ArtQuest®. By directly connecting buyers and sellers, ArtQuest® has helped artists and collectors eliminate the commissions and fees usually found in the process of buying and selling art.
Whether you're an artist, collector, consultant, dealer, designer, gallery, publisher or hobbyist extraordinaire, the easy-to-use ArtQuest® website will help you facilitate your acquisition or sale. When a work of art strikes your interest, simply email the seller by filling out the short form listed with the artwork. It's that easy! And please don't be shy, our ArtQuest® members want to hear from you and are willing to answer any of your questions as well as respond to your comments.
