Native peoples of the United States and Canada create some of the most beautiful art available, and these artworks are in high demand, especially in overseas markets such as Japan, Germany, and the United Kingdom. The demand for native art creates a great business opportunity for you, if you have a good contact base in foreign countries. This business allows you to work as a highly compensated broker by representing native artists locally and using your international contacts to set up distribution channels in foreign countries. The business can also work in reverse. You can set up distribution channels in North America representing artists from foreign countries. The business does require a lot of research and set up time, but the potential rewards can justify the effort.
