Featured Artist: R. Scott Baltz
My home on Mount Desert Island serves as the base for my studio and visual interests. Inspired by the surrounding landscape of Acadia National Park, I work to interpret the landscape filtered through memory and imagination. My studio is open to the public in season or online at rscottbaltz.com.

By employing the most effective marketing strategies available, we can promise that our site delivers the best visibility available, with the highest rate of conversion. What this means is that we can easily drive more traffic to our site than any other online gallery. Not only that, we can generate the best possible kind of site traffic. Because our site is fully optimized for search engines to recognize certain keywords, we can command the full attention of art buyers looking to buy your original art! Our business model doesn't just look good on paper, it's also been proven effective many times over. Let us achieve results for you!
Original Art Online, over the course of several search engine updates, is gathering more and more search visibility every day. We're getting noticed, and so are our artists!
We need to keep our gallery well-stocked with original art. Quality content forms a large part of our marketing strategy, and serves to accomplish two goals: it furthers the growth of our community of artists, and it presents potential buyers with a wide variety of art to choose from.
Artists who choose to create an account with us can see the benefits of increased marketing exposure. See what we can do for you! For $5.95/month, we will display up to 12 images of your original art. For $7.95/month, we will display up to 24 images of your original art and in addition, you will be invited to choose one piece to be submitted to our rotation of Featured Works, increasing your exposure.
Are you serious about marketing your original artwork? We are serious about getting results FAST!
Our site is ready to enter the next phase of our development. Now that we have been indexed by the major search engines, we will concentrate our efforts on climbing the rankings. It is our goal to position ourselves as the most high-profile, most successful online art gallery out there. However, we can't do this alone! We are always seeking to attract new artists, so we can present the most quality content to qualified buyers.

What are the benefits of joining?
Cost Effective! Membership fees are $5.95/month for 12 items and $7.95/month for 24 items with stats and a prominent Featured Artist listing. Compare this price with what it would cost for you to develop your own site (or hire a web developer) plus a monthly hosting fee. Even after this expense, there is no guarantee that the site you create will draw traffic. At Original Art Online, however, we have already created the site, and we are constantly looking for new ways to drive traffic to it. By joining Original Art Online, you get the most exposure for the least expenditure. Register today, and see for yourself!
No commissions to pay! On our site, the process of selling your original art has been simplified. Buyers contact you directly to negotiate a sale.
You can create and manage your own online gallery! Our user-friendly interface allows each artist to add, delete, and edit their own images from their home computer. Create your own unique bio and profile.
