Individually, many artists work alone to build connections, buyers and collectors. Some artists work with us and use our artist submission services to get news of their available work out to collectors, galleries, and art consultants. Other artists create or join artist collectives for professional reasons, such as to share costs of publicity, exhibition spaces, and to develop a higher group profile.
There is an amazing creative variety in the ways members of various collectives come together to host projects, exhibitions, workshops and events.
The New York based Kolektiv1 art group sells tickets to one night wine, jazz, art, and dancing events to raise awareness and support for kolektiv1′s artists and their spring art shows.
Kollektiv Gallery not only curates and exhibits art, but instructs artists in the world of Crowdfunding and selling art. Collective Gallery uses Kickstarter to teach new artists how to fund a project. Their Fast Art workshop instructs artists in using empty spaces and making a project happen on any budget.
The Animamus Art Salon, created by the artist Ventiko, puts on such amazing group artist performances that their shows garnered them a feature in Interview Magazine, which you can read here. Both the Animamus Art Salon and VERB Projects are about art in action and the act of making and participating. The VERB Projects artist led exhibitions and events offer an alternative approach within the contemporary art scene. Artists spend time in a space creating new art specifically for Verb Projects. Value is placed upon the artist’s engagement through working with a range of art and non-art sites, the dialogue between art object, the site and the role of the audience in it. Photos on their 12HRS tumblr blog and Up on the 5th floor and C-PAGES blog document activities in their free pop-up event spaces where artists showcase their work.
The Vox Populi artist run space in Philadelphia, which was founded in 1988, is an artist collective that seeks to support challenging and experimental work of under-represented artists. Vox Populi’s monthly exhibition schedule includes solo shows of members and guest artists, a curated video lounge, annual guest-curated shows and group shows that provide exposure for emerging artists.

Many recent Win-Win artists now participate in Artworld, among them Xavier Yarto (Mexico City, Mexico), Esra Kizir Gökçen (Istanbul, Turkey), Maša Gala (Ljubljana, Slovenia), and Marta Brysha (Tasmania, Australia). It has been my pleasure to meet all of these artists and to see and to study their work!
For artists seeking a first international exposure, an opportunity to travel and spend a few days in The Netherlands, this is a very personable, or as the Dutch would say gezellig, and intimate experience. The costs for the artist are shipping, own travel and accommodation. Arps & Co provide the gallery, local publicity, insurance, framing, hanging, and advice about the Dutch market. It truly is a Win-Win!
I think this is an excellent opportunity for international exchange, one, moreover that has a personality all of its own: quite unlike the aggression and competitiveness of a large exhibition. It brings a rounded sense of the personality of Amsterdam and of the individuals that take part.
I would like very much to see this idea extended to other small galleries with an education and charitable interest internationally. And I wonder whether funding could be found to bring talented and emerging artists from countries and circumstances where international travel and shipping would otherwise be beyond their reach? This might be done independently, for example in South Africa, India or East Asia, but it might also bring such new talents to Amsterdam. If you’re interested, then you might contact Arps & Co directly. Alternatively you might contact the Keith McFarlane, firstname.lastname@example.org. I will do what I can to connect people who are interested.
And if you’re an artist wishing to take part in the Win-Win programme and to visit Amsterdam, then contact Ella Arps at email@example.com.

I’m spoiled–only all-natural Z for me!
Last month, we published an article on the creative entrepreneurial success story of Z Cosmetics founder Ryan Zamo. Read our article here.
We told you about two Z Cosmetics all-natural hand clearers that I’m sure artist-painters would love to use when cleaning up at the end of a long day in their studios– Z Skin Cosmetic’s high-quality Coffee Almond Hand Scrub or Z’s soothing Sesame Ginger hand scrub.
Since then, I’ve been using the very fine quality Z Skin Miracle Facelift Wash every day. With this product– made with 100% pure ingredients– a little goes a long way. It deep cleans, softens, and has a toning and tightening sensation. ( I had other bottled facial cleansers around for comparison–those store shelf mass-manufactured products felt crude, stayed on the surface of my skin while leaving an artificial feeling residue–one that smelled chemically, soapy, and left a cheap perfumed after-scent. All I could think was that cheap perfume would ruin my Chanel! Ok, all I have now are a couple of Chanel perfume samples–but I have had full bottles of real DKNY and Chanel in the past and I am quite familiar with their high quality.)
Z Skin Care products are that high quality! All the Z products have a natural scent that comes from the all-natural ingredients that goes into them–no fillers, no added perfumes– all created by hand and all priced around $15 and under!
You can order these and other amazing organic products directly from their maker and Z Skin CEO Ryan Zamo. Ryan Zamo also spends hours a day speaking with his customers to help them pick the exact products to use, and follows up with them as much as possible to give them suggestions and answer any questions they have.
If you appreciate honest products, buy, use, and support Z Skin Cosmetics. They also have skin care kits with free shipping that will make great holiday gifts for vegans and lovers of all-natural products.
Like I said, I’m spoiled. Only Z skin care products for me!

Eyebeam will grant up to $5,000 to each selected residency project, either to a single individual or a collaboration of two or more artists. Read the Full Call here.

According to an article on the Urban Domesticity blog, “hanging artwork salon-style entails arranging a whole bunch of pictures and paintings together in a collage-like formation on the wall.”
This “old-fashioned” method of hanging art dates back to The Paris Salon (French: Salon de Paris), the official art exhibition of the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Paris, France. Between 1748 and 1890 The Paris Salon was the greatest annual or biannual art event in the Western world according to Wikipedia.
While this salon-style of hanging art has made a comeback with Interior Designers, which is good news for artists who will be able to offer even more artworks to residential clients to fill salon-hung walls, the term “salon style” may refer to location and relaxed atmosphere when it comes to contemporary art galleries.
Susan Eley Fine Art was founded as a salon-style gallery in an Upper West Side Townhouse in Manhattan, New York, to offer an intimate, personal viewing experience not typically found in white box galleries. Eley opened her Gallery to tap into an untapped audience and to show them an alternative way to enjoy art. She focuses on contemporary art by emerging and mid-career artists working in both figurative and abstract styles in a variety of media and presents their work in solo and group exhibitions showcasing artists from the U.S., Asia, Latin America and Europe.
Artist Marketing Resources has been researching art galleries for many years, and offers artists a chance to share at that research by purchasing the International Art Gallery Directory here.
Painter Kathryn Arnold is represented by the Sandra Lee Gallery in San Francisco, and is seeking gallery representation in Southern California and other regions.
