Here are some of the best free online gallery websites for displaying artworks online.

Use them to post and display drawings, paintings, sculptures, photographs, collages, and anything else art related.


Most allow you to network with other artists, create a portfolio right on the site, and sell your artwork through an online checkout.

I may expand on the list later. If anyone has any suggestions for additions, please let me know in the comments section.


Free Online Websites to Promote Art


  1. Redbubble

    Redbubble is a great place for artists to feature their artworks and get feedback. They have lots of groups where one can network with other artists from all walks of life, and post images there for all to see.

    Through the site, artists can use create framed prints, canvases, posters, calendars, stickers, t-shirts, and cards from artworks. Artists can set any price, and still hold the copyright.

    If you prefer to not sell artwork here, Redbubble is still a great place to network with other artists.

  2. Etsy

    At Etsy, artists can list and sell artworks and converse with art buyers and sellers. Each member gets their own page, to display and sell art right from the site.

    Etsy has a thriving community of artists and craftspeople, and has forums, online labs, teams, and events.

  3. Imagekind

    Imagekind is great for networking and building contacts too, with a forum and lots of groups.

    They allow artists to sell high quality giclee prints of artworks, even including framing, and members can set any percentage mark-up they wish.

    With over 50,000 members already, Imagekind is certainly a worthy community to expose your artwork.

    Artpickle is a very good community for artists! Members get their own website with domain name, blog, along with a space to post photos of art.

    Artists can keep up to date with art shows and festivals, openings, etc., and can even advertise their own.

    d’Art is a place for artists and art dealers to meet.

All these sites are very worthy sites of joining in your art promotion regime, if only to interact with other artists and buyers, and to attract visitors to your artist profile, blog, or website.

Suggestions are welcome for additions for this list. I do know of some other art gallery sites, but I wanted to narrow the list down to 10 for this post.
