Boston-area artists who have barely eked out a living by selling their creations on street corners, at craft fairs, and at open-air markets now have an online marketplace to sell their art.
Brother-sister duo Spencer and Liz Powers recently launched ArtLifting, which sells artwork created by people in art therapy programs. They created the site, artlifting.com, with the work of four artists who participate in Common Art, an art therapy program in Boston for homeless and low-income residents.
“I love to be able to sit here or wherever I am and put forth my vision of the world,” said Dante Gandini, 58, a self-described “starving artist” whose paintings of the Back Bay and Beacon Hill are for sale on the site.
