James Kalm has, over the last twenty years, established himself as one of the most knowledgeable and consistent commentators on the Brooklyn art scene in the world. It was through his video project The James Kalm Report that he first came across the work of Chris Martin. Previous James Kalm videos share his studio visits and long discussions with painter Chris Martin. This exhibition, the artist’s first with Anton Kern, presents recent works, many completed over the summer. Color is pitched to an almost harsh level, and various materials, like tin foil and glitter, are employed to challenge the viewer’s accepted notions of “good taste” and beauty. The musical introduction is provided by Peter Lewy and Frank Tedesso and was recorded spontaneously under the Arch at Washington Square Park.
If you have an art video that you would like featured on our blog, send it to: MarieKazalia@gmail.com
We continue to be amazed by the growing number of artists joining our Pinterest group board! Now more than 50 artists have added their art images with retail prices to our group board Art Direct from Artists.
So we’ve decided to give artists even more space. We’ve repurposed one of our Facebook pages (that we set up four years ago in 2010) to give artists opportunities to add their art images and links there too. Now artists are invited to add their art images + links + retail prices to our Facebook page Fine Art USA.
Just as we share, Tweet, and promote our Pinterest group board, we will do the same with our Fine Art USA Facebook page.
Artist Kay Vinson was the first to add her website link and image to our Fine Art USA Facebook page, and artist Lela Tabliashvili Art added the link to her own Facebook page, which I promptly *liked*, along with images of her art. So, if you are looking for more page likes for your Facebook page, follow her lead.
There is a lot of potential with our overall project to give artists this grass-roots level promotion on Facebook and Pinterest. Join in! Artists add your art and links here.
We’re also looking for art to re-design the header of our Fine Art USA Facebook page. Your art posted to our Facebook page may be featured as our page header image, perhaps we will be rotating this image every few months. Also, to help promote, we may Tweet some of your art images from our Fine Art USA Facebook page, and share them in promotional blog posts like this one. We then also that Tweet our blog post, share it on Google+, Facebook pages, LinkedIN, Tumblr and Pinterest.

Since opening in 2008, Science Gallery has had over one million visitors. Today, Science Gallery is seeking proposals for its upcoming exhibition LIFELOGGING LAB, which will open in February 2015.
Curators for this exhibition are seeking up to 14 works. Proposals will be funded up to a maximum budget of €2600. Two outstanding original works may be commissioned with a higher budget of up to €7500.
From critical to creative, LIFELOGGING LAB will ask artists, designers and philosophers ‘where do we go from here’ and question whether we can record and analyse happiness, beauty and aesthetics the same way we record footsteps and heartbeats. This exhibition will explore novel methods for capturing data, for visualizing, and for analysing the insights that new data affords us about ourselves and society.
Submissions Deadline: Thursday, October 23, 2014 – 12:00
Decide if you’re going to do a video based or text-based proposal submission.
For a video based proposal submit an informal two-minute (max) video in which you:
- explain how the visitor will experience your piece in the gallery
- tell us a bit about yourself
- outline a brief budget breakdown
Record your video with your phone, webcam and upload it to your own YouTube or Vimeo account or directly from the gallery submission page, or directly to the gallery submission page in MP4 format.
For text based submissions, submit up to a 300 word proposal in which summarize the same information: what the visitor will see/hear/experience, a bit about yourself, and a budget breakdown.
For each type of submission, you can also include images to illustrate your project.
You’ll need to either create an account on opencall.sciencegallery.com or you can log in using your existing Facebook or Google accounts.

Anyhoo, if you’re new to this, every year, the Slate Team opens up spaces in the Slate Planner to feature creative works both visual and literary.
Send your best work over, and we would love to have the chance to put the spotlight on them in the Slate 2015 Planner.

We’re interested in providing resources for artists working inside the traditional gallery system and working outside the system–and in any combination of both!
One instance of a traditional institution doing community based projects, and which we featured in our blog Last winter, was the first Deutsche Bank invitation to artists to bring and hang their work uncurated in the bank’s new exhibition space. One artist sent us photos of thousands queued outside in the cold waiting to see the packed show. Deutsche Bank continues to expand its art activities.
Each year, over the past few years, we have shared open calls to submit to Paper Girl a growing uncurated exhibitions and international events project. Annually, we post calls to uncurated art exhibitions in which all the art must be 6 x 6 inches or 12 x 12 inches, and uncurated art postcard gallery shows and sales.

Keith McFarlane, creator and developer of the ArtWorld app, and Marie Kazalia, Artist Agent and owner of Artist Marketing Resources are making joint efforts to connect artists with curators and collectors using both the app and e-postcard marketing plans to bring more visibility for artists internationally.
McFarlane recently met three artists who are represented on the ArtWorld app at the Window Gallery in Amsterdam, an exhibition space made available by the well-known arts patron and Amsterdam gallerist Ella Arps. McFarlane met Mexican artist Xavier Yarto there and took home a painting on paper by Yarto, which now hangs framed in McFarlane’s space, as shown in the photos below.
Artist Marketing Resources and the ArtWorld continue to make efforts to connect with more artists in Mexico, such as Mexico City sculptor Luz Zaga Vaca whose two sculptural works are depicted on e-postcards here.
As part of this joint effort, when artists participate in either E-Postcard Marketing Plan A or E-Postcard Marketing Plan B they will also gain visibility with a free ArtWorld app account and are welcomed on the Artworld community page on Facebook.
All artists, art lovers and collectors are invited to download the Artworld app in the iTunes App Store.
For further details on the E-postcard marketing plans contact Marie Kazalia, Artist Marketing Resources, email: MarieKazalia@gmail.com

An artist in France, Zalez, creates a wide variety of work. Zalez sent us this video of a trip to Los Angeles. You may or may not appreciate wheat paste art or street art, but we decided to share this Zalez video with you today. Video length: 3:27
We’d like to make Sunday our video feature day. If you are an artist and would like us to feature your video here, plus share it on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and Pinterest– send your video to: MarieKazalia@gmail.com
If you have ever thought of teaching an online art course to earn extra income, then you will want to take a look at the Craftsy site. Craftsy courses can be viewed in the Craftsy app for iPhone and iPad too! Here is an example of a basic painting video course:
a color pencil portrait drawing course:
a photography business course:
and an online jewelry making class available on Craftsy:
To help you get started, perhaps you could sign up for a full video course or a free mini-course on Craftsy to get a better idea of how to put your own course together. Take a look at the mini-courses Craftsy offers to find where you might fill in the gaps with your own course–Here’s the full list of Craftsy free mini classes to choose from
Craftsy offers courses in cooking, crafts, gardening and woodworking as well as many other subjects.
When you sign up for a course you can share images of your completed project for visibility within one of your classes, or, you can also post a completed project from your My Craftsy page by clicking on the orange “+ Add a Project” button and follow the steps provided.
The possibilities are limited only by your imagination. This article may help get you thinking. Reviewing the Craftsy site and taking notes will help get you started developing your own course ideas.
Do you have knowledge to share in an area that is not currently offered on Craftsy, such as pastel painting, printmaking, or textile painting on silk? Or do you have more advanced skills to share on a subject?
You can contact the site owners here to propose your own course or to find out more about that process.
Artist Marketing Resources will always help artists promote their projects, courses, and share artist news and updates–contact: MarieKazalia@gmail.com
We always have an eye out for new ways manufacturers use art printed on their products and this one stood out (or up?) as hard to miss (pun intended). A site new to us–that we discovered when they began following us on Twitter– the Bounty Hunter offers up contests and competitions. While the winner of the art printed on condoms prize will get $1000 US Dollars, artists may wish to think through such contests. Is this art on condoms project a one-off novelty or a new trend? Will art on condoms become standard, much like art on skateboards? If soon all condoms will have art printed on them, then an art licensing royalty contract could net any artist much more than the prize amount. Or perhaps winning the prize would be a good start?
If you decide that you’d rather have an art licensing contract and receive regular royalty payments, then how do you go about finding those companies that license art from artists?
You may be wondering how to make your approach to art licensing companies and artist agents with your art?
We also offer our guide to artists that includes cover letters that you can use. Get the Transmedia Artist Guide to Making Artist Submissions ebook here.
Or perhaps you would like to try simpler print-on-demand sales of your art as prints on paper or canvas or printed on products. Then get our Art Print Sales Sites + Other Print Resources here.

Call for Submissions: The Multiple eXposure Project Zine 1.0
Attention writers, researchers, photographers, visual artists, and image-makers!
The Multiple eXposure Project is a multimedia, multi/trans/inter-disciplinary artistic practice and research-based initiative that explores the many layers of image-making, participatory photography, visual ethnography, and performative encounter(s) between the image and the spectator.
We are happy to announce that we will be publishing the very first issue of our collaborative zine and we are now accepting submissions until December 31, 2014.
The theme of our upcoming zine is “Self-as-Subject”, an exploration of the “self” and its manifold permutations – its presence, identity, representation, liminality, and (dis)embodiment – in this day and age of digital madness, hyperreality and mobility.
The zine is multimedia so we are accepting text and image-based submissions related to the theme in any format imaginable such as: articles, essays, reviews, short stories, poetry, interviews, photographs (film or analogue), visual narratives, videos, digital art, illustrations, cartoons, mixed media, collages, experimental pieces, etc. Collaborative projects are very much welcome. Multiple entries are also accepted. Digital and printed copies of the zine will be released.
Some notes to remember:
- Please include your name, short profile, country of origin, and blog/website (if applicable) in your email.
- Photo submissions in jpeg format must include a title and description.
- When necessary, please follow the proper citations (MLA style) in article submissions.
Just one of the thousands of art magazines and art blogs on our e-list, 365 Artists 365 Days™ is a new collaborative project which was launched in 2014 by the Frank Juarez Gallery and Greymatter Gallery .
The aim of the 365 Artists 365 Days is to share new art projects daily selected from submissions received from artists. If you are an artist and would like to be considered for this project submit your work by filling out the form on the 365 artists 365 days site.
All submissions will be reviewed. Please note that due to the high volume of submissions the curators will only notify those that have been selected for the 365 Artists | 365 Days Project. They also reserve the right to decline individual items within a particular body of work even if the work as a whole is accepted.

Artist Beth Surdut shared her news –” I initially learned of Talenthouse through this post–thank you, Marie Kazalia– and am participating in a current competition to design a shawl for Stevie Nicks, who will choose the winner.”
You can add your own VOTE here https://www.talenthouse.com/i/416/submission/135612/4536bce2 I voted for Beth’s shawl to win and you can too!
The talented Beth Surdut created her storyteller shawl Night Bird especially for Stevie Nicks. Hand-drawn with gold-flecked resist and hand-painted with French dyes on habotai silk, the painted area measures 22 x 72 inches and is enhanced on both ends by the addition of a varying 7 inch double ruffle of chiffon interwoven with white ribbon. In the “black ink darkness,” a lone snowy owl limned by starlight flies over a blue and “silver spring” running through cobalt and amethyst mountains. Nightbird: And when I call/ Will you walk gently through my shadow/ The ones who sing at night. Quotes from Stevie Nicks songs: Sorcerer, Silver Spring, Nightbird
