Last week one of my girlfriends invited me to an event at Uprise Art
. The party, which was hosted by Homepolish
, featured the work of Jen Wink
. Her work was beautiful, but I was even more interested in the story behind Uprise Art
and what sets it apart in the art world.
The company, which was founded on the idea of making original art more accessible, allows customers to shop their gallery online. But their most innovative trait is how they set up payments. No matter how much the work costs (and many are quite reasonable) you can pay for the work in monthly installments. For example, if you wanted to buy a $1,200 piece, you could pay for it in $100 monthly installments over the course of a year.
But the most
amazing part of this program, is that you can swap out the art at any point. You read that right. If you have had a piece for six months and decide you want to change it out for something else, you can. Not sure if you want to spend $3,000 on that painting? Don't worry, you can return it.
In addition, Uprise Art
frames, delivers and installs your art within a few weeks…record time in the art world.
Buying art can be overwhelming and intimidating, but Uprise Art's
unique program takes a great deal of that anxiety out of the equation. Check it all out here
and be sure to stop by the gallery if you're in New York.
