Maine Artists Virtual Exposition displays the work of Maine artists while cutting out the gallery middleman for the artist and saving the art buyer the cost of gallery commissions.
Maine Artist Virtual Exposition is not a traditional art gallery, in that we are not offering your work for sale and collecting a commission. You are in control. You are paying for storage of your page and photos, design and graphic work, monthly updates and most importantly our experience with promotion and maintenance of a web presence. Visitors contact you directly so that you can build a relationship with your clients and handle any transactions and NEVER pay a commission.
MAVE accepts membership of artists, craftsmen and craftswomen who reside or have resided in Maine and those that depict Maine in their artwork, as well as artists, craftsmen and craftswomen who have intimate ties with Maine through family and friends.
