Who are we?
uBuyArt is a division of The Local Art Scene, a trading name of Hart Media Group. The Local Art Scene was set up in 2016, to support local artists, galleries and events with their regional online marketing and exposure. Today the site gets on average over 50,000 views from visitors across the UK and worldwide.
uBuyArt was created in 2021 to provide a dedicated selling platform for artists wanting a more personal hands on service that many of its competitors are unable to provide.

Your subscription includes posting up to 30 individual products on the site. You have access to your own online shop which enables you to add and moderate your own online catalogue. We will help you to get started. We will create your user profile and add upto 10 products to your gallery.
