Lower East Side (LES) New York City artist is seeking two visual poets / visual artists to collaborate on a public art project at Essex Market in the Lower East Side.
Yes, this is paid work!
Artists and poets with text, writing, visual skills, particularly photographic, who are tech savvy and passes the ability to channel interactions with people into collaborative compositions of text + image are welcome to apply. Fluency in Spanish is also helpful.
The project is called Market Poetics and is tied to the 75th Anniversary of Essex Market and Lower East Side History Month– both occurring in May in collaboration with NYEDC and the Artists Alliance. Dates: May 9th and 30th at the market. Includes prep work and some production in the streets
This project uses a Visual Poetics app to create visual poems and to channel stories from the people flowing through the market. The project work occurs within one of the market stalls, as well as while moving in the market and surrounding streets. We will be creating and uploading work to a project Tumblr blog and that will be projected as a realtime slide show on a wall at the market.
Here’s a link to the past public artwork installations that resulted in the development of the Poetics App software, which is now at version 1.25 and currently used in over 150 countries: http://www.sic.ph/poetics An iPhone is required, as it’s the sole platform thus far for the app.

Facebook– that ever-changing social media platform– has announced that it’s ready to make more overall changes, admitting that this scheduled new formatting could negatively affect your Page’s reach.
So, if you created your artist page, or small business page on Facebook, and have even paid for Facebook ads that brought “Likes” to your page, will all that fade into the background along with your page? Has developing your Facebook page been worthwhile for your business? Or is it time to shift your focus to new ways of getting visibility?
For some time, I’ve advised artists that Facebook ads bring “Likes” not sales. When you pay for any ad it will drive some traffic. But as soon as you stop paying for those ads, they disappears and are forgotten.
Feature articles on Artist Marketing Resources are better than paid ads because our feature articles become a permanent part of Google search engine and other search engine results. Artist Marketing Resources and our friends and associates work to bring you visibility.
Since we launched on Feb 3, 2009, Artist Marketing Resources has published articles featuring artists and art events. We’ve had people find and continue to comment on our articles that we published years ago!
Why do a feature blog article with us? Feature artist articles are multipurpose. Our published articles contain multiple large images of your art and multiple links–such as to your website, Facebook page, Twitter account, and blog. (Ads–such as on Facebook– tend to have one link and one tiny image, one purpose and one result). Our feature articles are much more versatile, and may be crafted to feature an event, such as exhibition of your art, or may offer new available work such a new print edition for purchase on your site. Or the article may share and illustrate your amazing art-making techniques or simply ask for followers for your blog or Twitter account and others.
Additional Value: After we publish your article, we tweet the article link with attached image across Twitter via our @TransArtGuide @Artozon @Transmediartist and others we admin. We include appropriate hashtags, such as: #painting #portrait #exhibition#drawing #fineartphotography and many others. We also use any appropriate Twitter trending hashtags to place your art in front of a new audience. For instance, yesterday we used the newly trending hashtag #handmadehour on our tweets for portrait commissions and portrait drawings.
We also share your feature artist articles on multiple Facebook pages that we admin. We share all our articles on Google+ and in Google art groups, and post article links to Tumblr blogs and add multiple images, with article link on each, to Pinterest.

Review the portfolio of artist Graham Edward Rhodes and you will find complex ink drawings, as if we are down on our hands and knees for a look into the microcosm in shadows and charred rubble, then look up at a distant vivid scene of chaos in the thermal-nuclear red of his painting of a post dystopian-like urban landscape.
Next we stumble upon the soothing Green Washed and still further on the horizon to what could be a rain storm over a turbulent sea

After a long winter we’re all looking forward to warmer days ahead. These watercolor paintings remind us of the coming spring and summer weather and may even have you looking forward to sun and a rest in the cool shade of your porch — real or wished for!
“These paintings re-capture memories from my youth. They are places from around my hometown that are nostalgic and quintessential to Vermont. I painted them to evoke a quiet time in one’s life where we can appreciate all that is good and soak it in. I hope the viewer is left with a feeling of warmth and peace.” Kathleen Berry Bergeron
Kathleen Berry Bergeron’s watercolor paintings and limited edition prints are available direct from the artist here.

Part of the research we do for our Artist Marketing Resources articles includes trying out various sales platforms for ourselves. Generally we are interested in online galleries, artist print sales sites, art licensing platforms, art magazines and art apps.
We’ve known about Fiverr for a few years now, and after hearing of creative people making as much as $47,000 per year on the Fiverr site from sales of their creative services, we decided to give it a try for ourselves. So we’re taking it for a test drive–perhaps rather skeptically at first!
Cannonwalls, a Canada based company, has a website in beta phase where artists can register now here: http://1479-2443.el-alt.com/
Once you register, you will be able to submit thumbnail images of your art and designs. Upon acceptance you will then upload your large files of your images for both high quality poster art and mural size reproduction.
The official launch of Cannonwalls is a few days away. Cannonwalls will be moving their site to cannonwalls.com upon launch, and they are also working on a mobile friendly version of their site.
If you’re an artist or know of any great designers please send them to the Cannonwalls site and have then throw up as many designs as they want, the more the better, monopolize the site…I would. The more designs thrown on Cannonwalls, the better.
The new site will be focusing on peel and stick vinyl decal posters, high quality 2″ thick wrapped canvas prints and huge vinyl peel and stick wall murals to start, (they say they use the same vinyl material as FatHeads ). Cannonwalls prints on the latest digital presses and literally sell thousands of units on Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, shop.com, shop.ca, etsy…under their J.P. London brand.
They want this to be a fun and lucrative project for artists and hassle free. They recently put a sales module in place so you can follow sales by design including the payment building. That’s key. It’s fully transparent. All sales numbers by type, money and date will be available to artists on their profile 24-7.

As Co-Editor of ArtWorld Community Magazine, I’d like to invite artists, arts writers and arts journalists to submit original articles on subjects related to the art works of living artists.
As part of promoting the fledgling Artists Portraiture Service, we set up a new Twitter account, just a few days ago, with the shorter version of the project name–@PortraitsAfrica and the response has been wonderful, with nearly 100 followers the first week! Having a dedicated twitter account for a project or a group of artists is a great way to connect and share your news. It keeps the project alive to continually try new ways to connect and promote your art project in your tweets.
For the African Portraiture Service aka @PortraitsAfrica, all the artists participating in the project have two things in common–one, they offer portrait commissions, and two, they all live in a country in Africa. The project service assists with the international commissions of portraits. Recently African artist Anton Killion completed a commission for a client via the African Portraiture Service. Working from the selfie provided by the client–Anton completed a large oil painting that he then shipped to the client living outside of Africa.
Here are thumbnail images of the selfie and the commissioned portrait painting:
Although we now primarily Tweet about the African Portraits from the new @PortraitsAfrica Twitter account, we also continue to Tweet artist news for the African Portraiture Service from our own Twitter accounts @TransArtGuide which now has 11,000 followers, and @Artozon, which now has 10,800 follower, and @Transmedartist with 9,284 followers :
Some other Twitter accounts that we manage for artists were set up to promote their available art on Amazon.
If you are interested in a managed Twitter account, feel free to contact us via email MarieKazalia@gmail.com or via direct message to any of the Twitter accounts above.
Last week, the Artist Marketing Resources blog featured this popular post–New Art Magazine accepting submissions–read it here. Often new publications have available pages to fill and it’s a good idea to submit early to publications just starting out.
A few years ago, we began compiling a resources e-list of links to fine art magazines and art blogs for artists to use so they could easily find the best publications to submit their work to for a feature.
That e-list has grown to 85 pages of links, with the first 25 pages alone consisting of Fine Art Magazines, Art Blogs, Art Publications & Artists Directories.
With daily research and gathering of these artist resources, soon more categories needed to organize these resources, so we added a New Media, an Art Apps, and a Design category for the publication links on our e-list, as well as separate listings of art publications focused on geographic regions.
As the e-list grew, we had to further refine the broad category of Design by dividing it into two categories– one for Interior Design Magazines /Architecture Magazine and a second for Art Design & Illustration. Many artists create artwork that could be featured in these types of publications and well as fine art magazines and art blogs.
We recently added these New Categories to our e-list of Fine Art magazines:
African, Black, African-American magazines and media resources
Subculture: Art Toys / Vinyl Art Toys
Urban Art, Street Art, Graffiti Art magazines
Here is a complete list of category contents for the E-list of Art Magazines and Art blogs.
- Fine Art Magazines, Art Blogs, Art Publications & Artists Directories
- Art Apps–for iPhone, iPad, and other devices
- Digital Art, New Media, Media & Technology
- ART RADIO & Art TV & Audio Art PODCASTS & VIDEO Art MAGAZINES/VLOGS
