Why isn't my artwork listed when I search for it on the site?

If you've just uploaded your artwork, note that it can take up to 15 minutes for it to be browse-able by those using our site's search tools. 

It's also important to understand that our search functions were primarily designed to help collectors discover and select from a number of works that match their search criteria and not to locate an exact work by a specific artist.

To ensure that users can find your works when they're browsing for art, it's extremely important that you:

  • Use very descriptive and specific keywords when uploading your artwork
  • Carefully and accurately categorize your work
  • Write a detailed artwork description in order to include any information that may not be represented in our current drop down menus.

Note also that categories that don’t currently appear in the main menu (like new media and installation) will still appear in the category lists that collectors use to filter their search.
