Open Call for Visual Poets/Artists to Collaborate On NYC Market Poetics Project

blogpoet

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.

INTERESTED? Send a link to your work, a short introduction about your interest and background, and contact information via the email on the site: http://www.sic.ph/poetics

How Will The Upcoming Facebook Changes Impact Your Facebook Page ?

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. We post your feature articles as a new discussions in our Artist Marketing Resources LinkedIn Group and in appropriate art collector groups.

We offer many options to suit your needs–

For a limited time we are offering our $5 Feature Article Plan on the platform Fiverr –take a look here.

Founder of Artist Marketing Resources, Marie Kazalia, is also a contributing writer for Xposy MultiMedia Magazine — as a writer for Xposy, Marie is always on the look-out for quality content. Artists may start with a feature article on Artist Marketing Resources, and, we become more familiar with your work, you may get a feature article on Xposy as well. Take a look at the Xposy multimedia magazine here.

Donations: We appreciate your support! Click here to donate. Donations get our attention and your donations are much appreciated! If you make a reasonable donation that covers our time, we’ll be happy to feature your art, arts product or service, or arts website to bring you new members.

Want to support us privately? Anonymous donations are gladly accepted, but, of course, to protect your privacy we cannot offer feature articles to anonymous donors. Give your anonymous support here (select the anonymous donor option).

What I learned From Offering Article Marketing Services to Artists on Fiverr Last Week

Screen Shot 2015-04-19 at 7.30.10 PM

Last week, after being contacted by someone who claims to earn $4000 a month on Fiverr working only 8 total hours per week, I decided to put Fiverr to the test for myself. I put out the word that, in order to better understand the site, I would offer a service on Fiverr for a limited time–read my article here— offering feature articles for $5.

Screen Shot 2015-04-11 at 3.18.43 PM

I had five orders placed via Fiverr my first week on the platform. What a relief that there weren’t more. If twenty had ordered this service that first week I would have been overwhelmed, especially since I had set up delivery at 7 days maximum per order. I also offered an extra service of magazine submissions for $20.

Four of my Fiverr orders came from artists I already knew. Also, one additional new person has shown interest in my services on Fiverr.  So that out of 6 interactions, two are new, or about one third. So that I’ve begun to think of Fiverr as a fun and interesting platform for making new business connections

I’ve since added another Fiverr service that will be much easier for me to quickly fill-–I will add your website link to my site blog roll for $5 on #Fiverr click here.

I must admit that I didn’t expect to like Fiverr as much as I do! Things happen fast on Fiverr and it’s super easy to use the Fiverr control panel on my account track orders. Plus Fiverr is automated create and flag reminders on your personal TO DO list, making managing your orders a minimal task.

Consider using Fiverr services as an alternative to paying for Facebook Likes and Google ads to get click-throughs to your site–

On Fiverr its easy for artists to order useful services–for instance, if an artist has an exhibition announcement that they want published and promoted on social media, they simply place the $5 order via my Fiverr feature article offer, upload their image or images and include a link to their site plus some suggested text or focus for the article.

Then the clock starts ticking. I have 7 days to fulfill the order–that is, to put together and publish the article. Once it is published, I complete the order via Fiverr by sending the link to the client. That way there is accountability on both sides–if a client who places an order is demanding too much, then I can offer a custom order at a higher fee or simply cancel the order. This also an easy way for artists to manage their marketing and fees paid for tax purposes.

Those controls and options within Fiverr are what make the site most useful. Otherwise, working for $5 has little appeal!  But with a volume of orders and higher priced extras and custom service options, all managed from the Fiverr site, I do see the potential for at least supplementing one’s income.

*

Although the majority of my first Fiverr orders came from familiar faces, I now have their positive reviews on Fiverr profile.*If you are thinking of trying Fiverr to suppliment your income, try offering several simple services rather than just one or two. You can also offer physical items that require shipping. Fiverr is set up to handle all that too.Whatever you are offering–services or products–add extras to give buyers more choices and so you can make more money. For instance, if a client needs the service completed quickly, you can add the optional service of fast delivery for an additional fee. Fiverr makes it all super easy to set up–so that those options are automated.

*

Why do a feature blog article with us? Published blog articles are better than paid ads because our articles become a permanent part of Google and other search engine search results. When you pay for *likes* and ads,  your exposure stops when you stop paying.

Additional Value:  After we publish your article, we tweet the article across 5 twitter ACCOUNTS. We share your article on multiple Facebook pages that we admin, share it on Google+ and in Google art groups, post to our Tumblr blog and share multiple images with links on Pinterest and post as a discussion in our Artist Marketing Resources LinkedIn Group

For a limited time we are offering our $5 Feature Article Plan on the platform Fiverr –take a look here.

And our additional new service-–I will add your website link to my site blog roll for $5 on #Fiverr click here.

Graham Edward Rhodes: Chaotic Drawings and Dystopian Paintings

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.

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.

Art Magazines + Art Blogs E-list for Artists Now 85 Pages + New Categories

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
  • Art BOOKS/Art Bookstores/Art Book Distributors/Ebook Resources etc
  • Photography
  • Themed–art submissions accepted on a monthly theme or quarterly theme
  • Subculture:  Art Toys/Vinyl Art Toys, etc
  • Urban Art, Street Art, Graffiti Art Magazine
  • INTERIOR DESIGN Magazines / Architecture Magazines
  • DESIGN & Illustration
  • Black Art Magazines, African Art, African-American Art Publications
  • Literary Journals – that publish art submissions + writing
  • Fiber & Fabric art, Ceramics, Craft
  • Tumblr blogs that accept art submissions
  • Social Media Art sites
  • University & College Art Magazines
  • US States–Art publications specific to each state in the USA
  • International by country–Art publications specific to each country
  • Industry Specific /Specialty– accept art submissions-Outdoors, Nature, Fantasy, etc

Many of these magazines have calls for submissions, or open submission policies and editorial calendars you can find in their submission guidelines.
