Alexandria Museum of Art annual juried exhibition

Nancy Noles, of the Alexandria Museum of Art, asked me to share—

Call for Artists for 27th September Competition

Event Description

27th September Competition

September 5–November 22, 2014

Opening Reception & Award Ceremony: Friday, September 5, 6-8pm

The 27th September Competition presented by the Alexandria Museum of Art is an annual juried exhibition selected from national and international submissions highlighting contemporary art practices in all media, selected by celebrated New Orleans based artist, James Michalopoulos. Featuring original art created within the past two years, 50 artworks selected by the juror will be featured in a full-color catalogue and exhibition at Alexandria Museum of Art, along the Red River in the heart of central Louisiana September 5–November 22, 2014. Total cash awards of $2,000 allocated to juror-designated award winners will be presented on September 5.

Visual artists over age 18 working in all media, including but not limited to painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, digital art, video, textile art, and printmaking are invited to submit. All artworks MUST be original and completed in the last two years (2012 or later). $35 entry fee for 2 entries, $20 per additional entry.

James Michalopoulos is a celebrated New Orleans based artist. He is a contemporary of Julian Schnabel, David Salle, Eric Fischl and a school of painters that prevailed in the 1980s who glorified the representational image. He is an artist who refreshes the familiar with colors that dance vividly in and out of the canvas; he pushes and pulls the dimensions of the pigment in the same way that people move and breathe.

The Alexandria Museum of Art strives to preserve, exhibit and promote visual art in Central Louisiana that contributes to the quality of life of its residents and includes collecting and displaying Southern art and art influenced by Southern art, together with promoting art education. Alexandria Museum of Art (AMoA) serves over 12,000 people each year in our museum galleries, store and off-site programs. AMoA entices visitors of diverse tastes with over 5,000 square feet of exhibition space featuring rotating exhibitions of art from our permanent collection, traveling exhibitions from around the world, and exceptional contemporary artists. Prospectus is available online here.

Week in Review: Artist Opportunities, Art Collector and Tech Opportunities to Support new ArtWorld App

The Artist Marketing Resources blog shared the news of the ArtWorld app IndieGoGo campaign. Artists are always free to sign-up to use the ArtWorld app to connect with art collectors. Art Collectors and app developers may wish to join in supporting the ArtWorld on IndieGoGo.

The Artist Marketing Resources blog also provided artists with a resource for purchasing fine art acrylic paint direct from the manufacturers at Nova Color , for substantial savings over retail prices.

The following day, we posted an article on art sales sites and art licensing sites, and the day after that we provided artists with news of a magazine seeking art from artists for publication on the cover of their next issue.

At the end of the week, we shared news of a Call to Artists for an opportunity for a July Solo Gallery show at the Napoleon Gallery in Philadelphia.


Looking for Submissions from Artists for Magazine Cover Art Publication Opportunity

I received a request from Beth, to share the news with artists that they are seeking artwork to publish on the cover of The Reader–here are the details:

Dear Marie,

I’m writing from The Reader Organisation, a social enterprise in the North West. We work to connect people with great literature through shared reading. We also publish a quarterly literary magazine called The Reader which offers great writing wherever we can find it, presenting big names and new voices side by side.

We’re always looking for submissions from cover artists to showcase their talent and to help them gain more exposure, and I wondered whether it would be possible to list The Reader under Art Magazines and Publications Submit list?

To read a little bit more about The Reader, please see our website: http://www.thereader.org.uk/magazine.aspx


As Beth requested, I’ve added The Reader to the Artist Marketing Resource list of Art Magazines, art blogs, art publishers for #artists to submit to increase visibility.  Click here to access that PDF list. 



Week in review: News and Ops for #Artists, April 1-7, 2014


This week on the Artist Marketing Resources blog, we shared news of the ArtWorld apps IndieGoGo crowd funding campaign and the first ArtWorld Print Competition with a cash prize! Read the details here.

Also this week, we let artists know about the First Street Gallery’s Call for Artist Submissions Extended Deadline–and there is still time to submit–here is the link to the prospectus.


Artists and artist assistants continue to contact us for e-copies of our International Art Gallery list PDF

Photographic Artists and their assistants like our new 2014 Photographers Resources to International Photography Reps and agents + much more--find it here.


We also received an email inquiry regarding our numbers of followers–

The Artist Marketing Resources blog has over 44,000 followers, our LinkedIN group also named Artist Marketing Resources has over 3,000 members.

We are at the maximum number of followers on Google+, and our Twitter accounts have 8,000-12,000 followers per account–@TransArtGuide  @Artozon @MarieKazalia @Transmediartist and other Twitter accounts that we manage.

An assistant to one artist wrote and asked “if you are so popular why do you have so few likes on your Facebook page?”

That’s a good question. The reason is that I started The Artist Marketing Resources Facebook page back in the days when Facebook made many FB formatting changes, destroying my layouts and work!  I became disenchanted with FB and did nothing for the page for a couple of years, instead concentrating on interactions on my blog and in my LinkedIN group. So now, I am working to re-active The Artist Marketing Resources Facebook page–Please follow and LIKE!

Right Side Art Call: Instagram Photo-based Contest and Exhibition

I have enjoyed snapping shots using my iPad and sending the pics to Instagram to share. Recently, I shared shots of paintings hanging in museum exhibitions using Instagram. Many artists and others snap pics from everyday life with their cell-phones and iPads. There are plenty of apps available for iPad for adjusting and altering these images. The VSCOcam app is used to set exposure on iPad, iPhone and other devices, while the Nightcap app is for taking photos at night using your devices. There are many other apps– some are free, some retail for as low as .99 cents. Ask your Facebook friends what apps they use to discover more.

Participate in an Instagram exhibition to connect with others using photo-based device apps.

Right Side Art has two photography based Instagram contests and exhibitions each year. Their next deadline is August 2014.

FJORD Gallery Philadelphia: Call for Entry

Elisa Gabor, an artist member at FJORD Gallery in Philadelphia, and Curator for the exhibition Labor With Love,  asked me to make their Call for Entry visible to artists. Here is the information:

To Labor With Love
Curated by Elisa Gabor
Deadline: March 31, 2014


On behalf of FJORD Gallery, artist curator Elisa Gabor is calling for artworks to be submitted to To Labor With Love: a collection of objects, images, and gestures about art and process. This exhibition will be on display at FJORD Gallery throughout the month of May. We are thrilled to also be exhibiting and hosting screenings of Artists at Work: a film by Finnish artist Elina Brotherus.

While Brotherus’ film addresses themes of work, subjectivity, and observation, we seek to compose a local conversation that engages creative courage, the value and futility of artistic skill sets, and art as evidence of unique interpretations of labor.

We are looking for artworks that may unintentionally relocate the maker as the subject, that narrate (fictionally or non-fictionally) the process of making something from love (or in the pursuit of love). We hope to assemble a grouping of artworks that rigorously push the limits of their medium either by exposing material failures or inventing new tools and applications.
How to Apply:

Email images and image list (see guidelines below) to fjord.curator@gmail.comwith “To Labor With Love” in the subject line.

Pay your submission fee via Paypal.

You will receive an email confirming your payment and submission.

Submission Criteria:

Submission Fee: $15.00 for two submissions, $5.00 for each additional submission. Maximum of 5 submissions. You may include one detail image (no fee) per three-dimensional submission as needed. Any medium is welcome (photography, video, sculpture, installation, books, web, etc.).

Please submit image list and images to fjord.curator@gmail.com with “To Labor With Love” in the subject line. An artist statement is not required but may help us to better understand your work.

Image List:
Artist information: Name and Contact info
Artwork information: File name, title, date, media, dimensions, presentation requirements (for example, needs pedestal, outlet, headphones, monitor, performance, etc.)

*Files formatted incorrectly will not be reviewed
1000 pixels longest dimension
Files should be named accordingly: Lastname_Firstname_ImageNumber (for example, Knowles_Beyonce_01)

Video pieces should be submitted via a link to an online player on the image list as well as in the email.

Calendar (tentative):
Applicants will be notified by April 6.
Artwork must be received or dropped off at FJORD Gallery by 7pm on April 26(artists are responsible for shipping to and from).

Art Galleries Accepting Artist Submissions: AD Projects New York City


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

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 info@adprojects.org.
