Established in 2010 as an online art market, StateoftheART re-imagines the brick-and-mortar art gallery experience for the digital age. It’s the brainchild of Jennifer Reynolds, whose career has spanned financial markets and technology sectors.
This gallery cum e-commerce website is a boutique style 'clicks-and-mortar' platform which represents selected emerging and mid-career visual artists from across South Africa.
It offers an extensive range of modern and contemporary art in a variety of mediums; painting, printmaking, fine art photography and sculpture: all available for instant purchase to collectors around the world, regardless of geography.
The majority of sale proceeds are returned to the artist who created the work, and a percentage also goes towards funding the StateoftheART Gallery Award, a not-for-profit initiative founded by the gallery in 2018 to promote artists who have yet to establish a profile on the contemporary local art scene. So, when you buy art from this gallery, you’re directly supporting artists.
StateoftheART’s intention is to deliver art with integrity and emotion, at great value.
