Testimonials

Sanya Kantarovsky
Art Record is the first elegant, intuitive and flexible way for artists to archive and share their work. After wading through several archiving services and programs, I've found Art Record to be the best by a broad margin, specifically in its attention to the preferences of artists. The people behind Art Record are perpetually open to developing new features—a quality that gives their project a value of possibility and flexibility.
David Armstrong Archive
Tasked with building a digital database of the David Armstrong Archive holdings, our team needed an affordable and accessible platform as we documented and catalogued an entire photography estate one record at a time. Art Record has been a reliable and flexible tool for our project. Being able to add and edit information from any device became imperative as our team transitioned from onsite to remote work over the past two years. One of our favorite features is the PDF Checklist, which we use regularly to share collections of images with professionals outside of our studio.
Margaret Lee
My introduction to Art Record felt nearly miraculous. The overall look and flow of data entry somehow eclipsed my usual feelings of dread and in fact, I found it to be quite enjoyable and fun to fill in the blanks, so much so that I was able to finally create a comprehensive archive in less than 3 months and feel quite confident that my utilization of Art Record has finally instilled in me the organizational logic that I have been lacking for so long.
Jill Magid
I've been using Art Record and I love it. The team handled the migration of my inventory from a much less user friendly FileMaker file to Art Record in a week's time. The site is user-friendly; I like its simple design. It works on my phone just as well as on my computer. This system makes it so much easier to track my work than it ever has been. My questions are always answered quickly and personally. I completely recommend it.
Lisa Oppenheim
Art Record is a rare find. For years, the studio has been trying to find an effective and economic solution for tracking artworks to no avail, and has always cost us a lot of time and effort because of it. Art Record is intuitively designed and technically sharp, which makes it a pleasure to use but also extremely practical. After only two months of use it's radically streamlined how we've been able to do business internally and outside of the studio. We couldn't recommend it highly enough.
Jon Rafman
Art Record is satisfying to use and customizable to fit our needs. It's a powerful tool for keeping track of things past and present.
