WordPress Themes for Fine Art

Georgia

georgia-wordpress-art-theme

Georgia, named in the honor of Georgia O’Keeffe, is a parent theme that features 6 widget areas that are all shortcode enabled. This means you can add WordPress galleries to any widget area.

The theme demo also demonstrates using the text widget to add featured images to your widgets areas. There’s even a tutorial about using the text widget at Artbiz.ca.

Georgia is also WooCommerce enabled.

Currently I’m using this theme at my fine art site, KimBruce.ca.

Da Vinci

Da Vinci is a parent theme that other themes can be built on.

Da Vinci lets you create a responsive magazine website with a sleek, modern design. Feature your favourite homepage content in either a grid or a slider. Use the three widget areas to customize your website, and change your content’s layout with either the default or full-width page template. Creating a magazine website with WordPress has never been easier.

The Da Vinci theme is so flexible and has so many ways it can be used that screenshots are the best way to show you how one theme can have many looks.

Here’s a quick guide on setting the featured content

How the WordPress Artist Themes got their names

Well if you’re an artist you’ve probably already figured that out. I decided to name the themes after famous works of art and artists. David, for example, is named after Michelangelo’s David. Cassatt after artist Mary Cassatt, and so on.

SEO2Traffic to your site can grow substantially with search engine indexing of your images.  The first thing you need to know is that a search engine robot can not see that your image is a landscape, or oil on canvas, you have to tell it with words.
