At Austin Artists Market, we believe that art enhances our lives, brings joy and creates an environment that reflects our personalities. That is why we offer a large selection of artwork ranging from traditional to contemporary in a variety of subject matter and media. Whether you are seeking an original, limited edition or quality reproduction, we can assist you in selecting just the right piece to suit your lifestyle.

Austin Artists Market was founded upon one principle – to make unique original and reproduction artwork available and affordable to everyone. Our eclectic collection is comprised of various media and subject matter with a wide range of price points. Additionally, we represent the finest regional and local artists on originals and only partner with the most reputable art wholesalers for the reproduction artwork.

Our main objective is to assist you in purchasing quality art thus developing a relationship based upon trust. We believe that buying art is more than just finding a decorative piece – it is the thrill of finding the perfect piece that will accentuate your home or office and provide a pride of ownership that will last a lifetime.

We’re art enthusiasts and artists. First and foremost, we started as a marketing engine. We know the web, how to grab traffic, etc. So then the site was born. We began to plant and water and integrate artists, and contributors: a photographer, a designer, a gallery manager, and so on. It was a side project, and free, and we decided to only ever show work which was at least initially, quite frankly, far superior to what we could offer an artist. Thankfully, we found that a little promotion goes a long way, and we’ve managed to grow and build our reputation here in Austin.

What is Flemish Art?

Painting, graphic art, and sculpture produced in an area similar in size to that of modern Belgium and Luxembourg, formerly known as the Southern Netherlands. Flemish art assumed a major role in the history of European art during the 15th, 16th, and 17th centuries. The largest county in the Southern Netherlands was Flanders and the term Flanders may be used to refer to the whole of the Southern Netherlands, just as Holland has often given its name to the whole of the Northern Netherlands.

Tempera Painting

Tempera was the most used technique from the 12th or early 13th century until the 15th, when it began to give way to oils.  It  is type of painting medium used to bind pigments. Etymology for tempera is from latin word temperare “to mix colors, temper, or regulate”.   Tempera, also known as egg tempera, is a permanent fast drying painting medium consisting of colored  pigment mixed with a water-soluble binder medium (usually a glutinous material such as egg yolk or some other size).
