ArtByUs.Com Now Ranked Second Most Popular Online Art Auction Site

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (PRWEB) September 6, 2004 ( ), the online marketplace for contemporary, fine art by self-representing artists, artisans, and fine art galleries announced today that the leading Internet market research firm Alexa has ranked number two under all online art auction sites.

Continuing their unbelievable upward trend,’s ranking has moved up to rank 22,718 in the Alexa 100,000 traffic rankings (a list of the 100,000 most popular web sites in the world) – a sensational progress for a site that was only launched about 6 months ago.

With over 1000 registered sellers, creates the bridge between nationally and internationally recognized artists, artisans, photographers, fine art galleries, architects, interior designers, and art collectors. While other auction sites charge the artist community high listing and commission fees, offers a very affordable distribution model.

“The basic listings are free and we are not charging a commission on sold items ” said company founder Conni Tögel. “The only investment a seller has to make is the time to post the artwork information. Once the artist lists the artwork, the unique ArtByUs postcard function allows the artist to send out image postcards to promote the artwork for free.”

Unlike other auction sites, does not allow the listing of mass produced artwork, unless the artist is selling their own high-quality, fine-art prints. Therefore architects, interior designers, and art collectors find it easier to purchase real, original fine art, and to connect with the artists themselves. currently provides a wide range of art categories like paintings, sculptures, artisans, photographs, illustrations, prints, digital art, studio supplies, studio furnishings, books, visual aids, and artist services. can be reached at
