  • Hi, Allyson
    I didn’t see if you’d picked this up in a previous post, but this Twitter Tweekly reminded me. I highly recommend Artwork Archive to all artists (artworkarchive.com). It’s a cloud-based inventory system designed for individual artists (as opposed to big software packages designed for galleries and museums). It works perfectly and has saved me and my staff hours of work hunting down pieces, tracking sales, which work is in what show, etc. (I don’t get any benefit from promoting them, I just want other artists to know about it because it’s been such a big help to the administrative side of my practice.)

  • Thanks, Lynn! I’m glad you like them. They are nice guys based here in Denver and seem very responsive to artist-clients.
