I worked with an artist a few years ago, who, in a series of performance events with her artist friends, placed a large blank canvas and paints and brushes in the event space on which attendees or audience members were free to paint what they wished. The canvas was then exhibited at the next performance and exhibition. This may have been idea circulating with young artists for some time, and which has now found its way into museum venues. The New Museum in New York , which considers its spaces a leading destination for new ideas and new art, currently has the exhibition Paweł Althamer: The Neighbors, which includes a whole gallery where anyone can draw or paint on the walls and the floors, and whatever you make becomes part of the exhibition: http://bit.ly/1gbRftO
The New Museum also has an online only exhibition series titled First Look: New Art Online, a monthly series of innovative online projects and new commissions by the New Museum.
The New Museum wishes to become a hub of innovative artistic practice. The New Museum has also conceived the first museum-led incubator program called NEW INC. The NEW INC program, which will launch in the summer of 2014, will be a collaborative creative space with a lab-like environment for the development of new ideas and practices for creatives exploring cross-disciplinary and technology based projects. The New Museum feels that because such creative individuals and artist groups are exploring work in still undefined cultural areas, that few resources and support systems exist for them, and so the NEW INC program offers a twelve-month residency to provide the needed space and resources. Find more on NEW INC here, including how to apply.
Christopher Klim, the editor of Best New Writing, asked me to let artists know that his magazine has a paid opportunity with great exposure. “The artist gets the front and back cover. Right now, it’s wide open. We’re looking for bold, small, and intriguing,” he said.
Best New Writing pays artists for cover images plus full byline and contributors copies. Best New Writing, which houses the results of the Eric Hoffer Prose Award and the Gover Prize for fiction and creative nonfiction, pays artists for cover images: $75.

It can be difficult to keep up with all the restructuring that online sales sites go through.
The 20 x 200 online print sales site went offline to restructure. The 20 x 200 site is a project of Jen Bekman of the New York City Jen Bekman Gallery www.jenbekman.com. If you visit the 20 x 200 site now, you can sign up for the Reboot List for early word on the 20 x 200 relaunch. There is no mention of whether the new site will also have an image upload submissions feature for artists to submit their work, an option the former site offered.
UK-based 100Artworks online print sales site has become Tower Art Gallery with print sales, sales of original paintings and sculpture as well as other art items.
ArtExchange, one of the smaller art sales sites, has a notice posted–
Online sales sites continue to try a variety of configurations and tactics to bring in buyers. ArtBomb Daily , based in Canada, is an email blast that goes to over 10,000 subscribers each morning. Bidding on the selected artworks in an auction begins each day at 6 a.m. until 11 p.m. EST. It is a silent auction on-line. Anonymous. Private. Another aspect of ArtBomb is Artbomb New York, which is currently under construction and is set to re-launch April 1st. The site will be curated by gallery owner/curator Joshua James. Please submit work for consideration to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Drawing Center in New York came into existence in 1977. In 2006, the Drawing Center’s artist registry application process and archive went online. Many artists applied and the registry increased to over 2,500 artists. Up until recently, The Drawing Center allowed artists to upload their artwork images for curatorial review and acceptance into this curated artist registry, which is open to use by curators and others art professionals. But now, the Drawing Center has redesigned their website and submissions program. They no longer accept new submissions for their artist registry. However, they encourage artists to apply to their newly launched artists’ platform, Open Sessions. Open Sessions is a two-year program open to artists working in a variety of disciplines. Open Sessions will offer selected artists exhibition opportunities in The Drawing Center’s Lab Space and other venues, as well as studio visits, public programs, and informal gatherings.
Early in 2014, AMOS ENO Gallery located in the Bushwick community of New York, presented an exhibition opportunity with an open call for artists to participate in PAST / FORWARD, an exhibition celebrating Amos Eno Gallery’s 40 years of operation. The call has closed and all works have been selected from the entries submitted. PAST / FORWARD will be on view in Amos Eno’s new home at The Loom until March 1, 2014.
Within the past five years, the resurgence of alternative artist spaces, particularly in the borough of Brooklyn, New York, has drawn the attention of the international art world.
Just one of many art galleries and art exhibition projects that are currently accepting submissions from artists, AD Projects is an independent curatorial enterprise supporting the work of emerging and mid-career artists.
Artist Marketing Resources offers a list of hundreds art galleries currently accepting submissions, in PDF format—gain access to the resource list here.
Artist Submissions — AD Projects would like to learn about new work by emerging artists. If you are an artist and would like your work reviewed, please follow the submission guidelines below.
All submissions should include:
▪ cover letter
▪ biography and/or resume
▪ artist statement (up to two typed pages)
▪ articles related to work (up to three reviews/press clippings)
▪ representation of work in jpeg format
Please email your materials to email@example.com
Space Submissions AD Projects’ mission—to mount fresh work by emerging artists in raw, vacant or temporary spaces—places it within a widening movement that has gathered momentum in New York. Several other groups have formed to take advantage of the vast walled-in emptiness that is the result of the real estate bust. AD Projects’ peers include No Longer Empty, SmartSpaces and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
In the interest of reviving the tradition of alternative exhibition sites, AD Projects is always seeking vacant spaces to invigorate with contemporary art. Should you have details for available real estate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Some artists looking for ways to create many multiple streams of income, may do well to consider t-shirt design sales. Some t-shirt sites pay royalties or a percentage of sales of you design.

When I visited the Andy Warhol Museum, one gallery had walls covered in Andy’s cow wallpaper. You can still find Galleries and sellers on ebay offering signed sheets of this cow wallpaper for many thousands of dollars. Today, contemporary artist Shepard Fairy creates his own wallpapers, which he tears and collages into supports for much of his silkscreen art.
Some artists are looking for more interesting ways to offer their work, and so wallpaper may present options. Also artists seeking economical ways to create large prints that they will then embellish to make into unique hand-drawing and painting originals may look to wallpaper printers.
At Wallpaper on Demand, artists can upload their own designs and have mural size prints made or repeating pattern wallpaper printed of their work to sell or show as samples to potential buyers. The Wallpaper on Demand site is in English and Italian. I haven’t tried this site, yet so many possibilities come to mind.

Adobe is making changes to their PDF services. They are requiring all files be moved to the Cloud where they can be accessed via any device–which is a plus for iPad users. But the monthly file storage fees will increase from $10. per month to $50. per month.
So we made the decision to increase the prices on Artist Resource PDFs to help cover the increased Adobe fees. Yes, we had sales right away at our new prices. Indicating that the prices had been very low, and are still quite reasonable, and that artists want and need our PDF resources.
One exception is that the price of our Transmedia Artist Guide to Making Artist Submissions ebook remains the same.
