Discovery Learning is a supporter of the Artist Marketing Resources blog.
Discovery Learning are a fitness education company based in London in the United Kingdom. They sell and teach fitness courses such as gym instructor courses and personal trainer courses. They run their courses out of a network of academies located across the UK in London, Manchester, Leeds, Nottingham, Cardiff, Bournemouth, Birmingham, Coventry and Ipswich.
In addition to the mainstream accredited fitness courses, they also provide a wide range of extra course modules and training that people can purchase as add-ons to the mainstream course packages. You can go here to see a full list of fitness courses available from Discovery Learning.
One of the things that separates Discovery from most other fitness course providers in the United Kingdom is that their courses contain much information related to nutrition and weight management in addition to just physical exercise and sports training.
This is because Discovery are allied to various UK government organizations aiming to promote healthier living and tackle the rising childhood obesity crisis in the United Kingdom. They believe that by equipping trainee personal trainers and gym instructors with knowledge about how to treat overweight and nutritionally deficient people, they are providing the British public with additional expert sources from whom they can seek specialist weight management advice.

Once the Three Days is over the Artist can choose to sell the print in the Gallery where the artist gets to set the Royalty they receive from each print sold.
Three Day Gallery provides a selected artist with a custom profile, exposes the artist to the gallery’s audience of daily viewers, plus the artist retains full ownership of their work.

There are many ways artists connect with gallerists–meeting and talking with them at Basel Miami, iPad portfolio in hand, is one way.
Artists can also do research online to find and connect with gallerists in groups on LinkedIN, Google+ and Facebook.
The MICROSCOPE Gallery in Brooklyn New York presents film, video, sound, performance, new media and other time-based artists through exhibitions, screenings and other events. The gallery also has a Facebook group. This open group is a place for artists to connect with the people at Microscope Gallery.
Many galleries accept proposals from artists, or have open submission policies as well as seasonal calls for submissions.
Last month, I helped a small group of artists write a gallery proposal for a group show in a New York City gallery. One of the artists mentioned that the gallery website states that they are not currently accepting proposals, but that when she emailed the gallery she was invited to submit an artist proposal. The proposal we put together contained the bio, CV, and exhibition history of each artist, as well as images of their artwork and descriptions of their art making processes. The proposal proved to be an excellent way for these artists to introduce themselves to the curators at that particular gallery, as well as enter into the gallery system. Plus the proposal was structured for future updating, and use–each of the artists can expand, adapt, add new work, or develop the proposal further to use for other opportunities. If you would like to learn more about artist proposals, contact me, Marie Kazalia, via email: MarieKazalia@gmail.com
Finding time to research gallery opportunities can be an issue for many artists. That’s why Artist Marketing Resources put together a 200 page list of clickable links for artist to research and connect with art galleries world-wide. This research list cuts down on artist research time and helps artists quickly identify gallery opportunities. In the PDF, galleries currently accepting submissions, proposals, or that offer artists other opportunities to show their work( such as alternative galleries that have storefront exhibition programs and sales venues), are highlighted in yellow. That way artist quickly check under a region heading, note which galleries are accepting submissions and proposals, and visit those gallery site to learn more.
One hour each day researching the International Art Gallery PDF will provide you with many new opportunities and a better understanding of galleries in any region. The PDF currently has extensive sections containing links to galleries in major art centers such New York City and Brooklyn, the California cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco, Chicago, London, Berlin, and cities in China, Canada, and Australia, as well as, growing lists of links to galleries in other cities in the USA, Europe, Asia, and South America.
Our own research is ongoing, and as new galleries open their doors we quickly add them to our PDF gallery list.
Artists should feel free to contact us with any questions, needs, or requests. We love hearing from you.
