Setting Up Your Private Art Gallery

Attention all artists! At we offer a completely free art gallery service to fellow creative professionals. Our gallery service offers two options: a public gallery or a private gallery.

A public gallery is for artists who want customers to be able to purchase reproductions of their work directly online.  With a public gallery, artists only need to provide the high-quality digital images of their work.  The rest, including collecting orders, printing and framing reproductions, shipping work and collecting payment is all done by American Frame.  The artist sets the price for their image and receives the proceeds directly from American Frame

A private gallery is best for artists who prefer not to sell their work online directly to customers.  Artists use private galleries as a free way to archive digital images of their work and as a means for reproducing giclee prints of their own work.  Artists can order their own work reproduced in small or large quantities; framed or unframed; and on paper, canvas or other substrates.  American Frame does the printing, framing and shipping.

A gallery can be designed as either wholly private, wholly public or as a combination, with private images and public images both included.  Artists always maintain copyright over their own work and control over its pricing.

To open an art gallery, public or private, you will need to have an account with American Frame.  If you already have an account through our new website, open your gallery by logging into your account and clicking on the “Art Gallery” tab.

To make an image private, follow these steps:

1. Click on “My account” in the upper right hand corner of the homepage
2. If you don’t already have an account, you can create one now. (Follow these steps)
3. Once logged in, click on “my art gallery”
4. For the image that you want to make private, click “edit”
5. It will ask: “show on web” Choose “no.”
