Fineline.art is a marketplace for local artists to sell their work and for buyers to find meaningful art for their homes.
We've put together a blueprint to guide us. We're always learning and love to hear your feedback.
Our vision is help people make. To make art. To make connections. To make careers. We're simply the jumping off point for local artists to sell their work and for buyers looking to make their homes more meaningful. People, community, and art. It's what makes us, us.
Our marketplace helps art buyers who want to connect to the art scene and art community by crafting a guided sales experience and giving them access to the story behind the art they purchase.
We're pioneering a new model of collaborative entrepreneurship by fostering a learning community and co-operative where creatives can sell their work while developing skills to thrive in a just economy.
In 2021, OCAD University launched a project with the support of the Future Skills Centre to incubate an art marketplace and a co-operative that helps artists and designers grow their business online, while developing cultural entrepreneurship skills.
The result is Fineline and the project has been shaped by artists and designers every step of the way. Those creatives are now forming a co-operative to enable co-ownership, co-governance and peer-to-peer support for members.
We’re here to help local artists find community and resources. That’s why we’ve created easily accessible programs to encourage artists to launch and grow their art and design businesses while staying committed to their core values of making and sharing their art.
