No small business exists in a vacuum. Small businesses exist within a complex network of service providers, clients and contacts, all of whom create the space in which that business operates. In the case of The Fine Arts Company based in Maryland, that is a more artistic space than most.
The Fine Arts Company is the realization of a longtime dream for co-founders David Nathans and Melissa Kaiser. The pair of art enthusiasts founded The Fine Arts Company with the goal of bridging the gap between artists and collectors, offering handmade in America fine art, home décor, jewelry and gifts at affordable prices. By removing the time investment and intimation factor of visiting galleries, even the most casual collector can find and purchase one-of-a-kind fine art made in America conveniently.
Showing unusual dedication in a business climate which is increasingly impersonal, The Fine Arts Company sources all its stock directly from American artists. By maintaining close relationships with the independent artist whose work it carries, The Fine Arts Company provides a marketplace for talented artisans and ensures that the spirit and intention of the artist is conveyed in the way the items are displayed and marketed.
Many of the artists who work with The Fine Arts Company are small business owners themselves, self-representing artists who manage a small staff or work alone to design and create, stock, market and balance finances. By building relationships with these artisan-owned small businesses, The Fine Arts Company is supporting small business and local economies in a very real way. The represented artists span the country, including several based in the New York area. The network surrounding The Fine Arts Company includes like-minded artists, designers and small business owners all working towards a common goal – making fine art accessible to anyone and everyone.
Shopping online at The Fine Arts Company is simple. A clean, concise layout shows the shopper categories including glass, pottery, wall art, jewelry, wood, metal and even gift ideas. Each item includes a precise description as well as a brief biography of the artist. Shopping at The Fine Arts Company will soon be a hands-on experience, as the first retail location will be opening shortly in Hagerstown, Maryland.
The Fine Arts Company is an American small business which both offers a unique opportunity to customers and helps to support other American small businesses. By raising the consciousness of consumers as to what they buy and where it comes from, The Fine Arts Company helps to bolster the local economy and continue building its own network of like-minded individuals and businesses.
