Support the ArtWorld App on IndieGoGo For Great Perks!

Artworld Crowd-Funding

Artworld is Crowd-Funding on Indiegogo and Offering Great Perks!

Dear Artist,

I am contacting you on behalf of Artworld, the online community for artists, art enthusiasts and buyers. I have your email-address as you have registered with us. A good proportion of you will have uploaded work (about half of all who registered). And many of you will know me personally through our correspondence.

As users and often supporters of Artworld, I ask you to help Artworld raise some €10,000 via crowd-funding (roughly $14,000 or £8,300). I invite you to take a close look at our proposal, and at the imaginative, perks we offer in return for your contribution. Here is our campaign-page. The campaign, on Indiegogo, will run for the next 45 days.

Artworld has been growing steadily since its launch. We have around 500 artists, some 5,000 app users, and a regular Facebook audience of around 1000 (there being some 8,000 likes). That’s an excellent result for a one-man pro-bonoinitiative with a tiny promotion and marketing budget. Artworld has spread almost exclusively through personal recommendation: by “word of mouth”.

The number of participants is now enough that additional development work is needed. To support this we have decided on crowd-funding. For a pro bono project such as Artworld, venture capital is not an option. Equally, my personal resources are not so large that I can raise the required investment from a bank. That leaves crowd-funding as the natural and indeed only practicable choice.

Spread the Word!

Other than, or in addition to, a cash contribution, you can support Artworld by sharing our Campaign Page on Facebook, or by copying this email to your own supporters, family and friends. And why not post it on your web-site or blog, or other social media, perhaps even tweet it? Help our campaign go viral! With full funding I can do even more to help Artworld’s artists and the community they represent.

Yours sincerely. Keith McFarlane Artworld Negative Entropy BV Amsterdam The Netherlands

First Look: New Art Online Exhibition + a whole gallery where you can draw or paint on the walls and floors

I worked with an artist a few years ago, who, in a series of performance events with her artist friends, placed a large blank canvas and paints and brushes in the event space on which attendees or audience members were free to paint what they wished. The canvas was then exhibited at the next performance and exhibition. This may have been idea circulating with young artists for some time, and which has now found its way into museum venues.  The New Museum in New York , which considers its spaces a leading destination for new ideas and new art, currently has the exhibition Paweł Althamer: The Neighbors,  which includes a whole gallery where anyone can draw or paint on the walls and the floors, and whatever you make becomes part of the exhibition: http://bit.ly/1gbRftO

The New Museum also has an online only exhibition series titled First Look: New Art Online,  a monthly series of innovative online projects and new commissions by the New Museum.

The New Museum wishes to become a hub of innovative artistic practice. The New Museum has also conceived the first museum-led incubator program called NEW INC. The NEW INC program, which will launch in the summer of 2014, will be a collaborative creative space with a lab-like environment for the development of new ideas and practices for creatives exploring cross-disciplinary  and technology based projects. The New Museum feels that because such creative individuals and artist groups are exploring work in still undefined cultural areas, that few resources and support systems exist for them, and so the NEW INC program offers a twelve-month residency to provide the needed space and resources. Find more on NEW INC here, including how to apply.

Artists Connect With Brooklyn Based Microscope Gallery in Facebook Group

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.

Who is potentially interested in buying photographic art work?” Artists benefit because they can identify their collectors.

Who is Larry?

Art Angels, by ArtWorld App Developer Keith McFarlane

ART & THE ANGELS. ArtWorld owes a great deal to its artist-collaborators– artists wishing to encourage their fellow artists just as much as to promote their own work. And so often it is our best artists that feel this obligation to the community of art. In recognition of their service let us call them our “Art-angels”, a lovely if sadly not original turn of phrase!One such is Marie Kazalia. (You can see something of her artworks on ArtWorld and on her web-site at http://mariekazalia.me.)  Marie has helped ArtWorld gain a foothold with our artists, not least through her own Artists’ Marketing site at http://artistmarketingresources.com, but also and more widely through her network of artists and contacts throughout the United States. Her most recent intervention has been to help LA based artists Irena Orlov and Maya Green take part  in ArtWorld; first of all by suggesting their participation, and then by taking away the “pain” of technical participation by uploading their artworks and personal information on their behalf. It’s exactly this kind of quiet publicity, personal recommendation and “oiling of the wheels” that has seen ArtWorld trek, coast to coast, across the United States, even start to fill out the interior, reaching places and way-stations not in the slightest known for their art!The Art-angels can do much, and this editor is working flat-out to support them! And should ArtWorld grow just a little bigger, become a soupçon better known, we will be looking for an art-angel or two who can help us! One task is to engage with our Facebook audience. But far more important it is to reach out to their fellow artists, promoting, encouraging, facilitating and, not least, “spreading the word”! It’s the role of the guest editor, being a local focus in the ArtWorld community; perhaps even orchestrating local get-togethers, or a place where artists can meet. ArtWorld can, with the support of such Art-angels, really make things happen; for I for one do not share Auden’s pessimism, whether about poetry or the arts more widely. And we have already seen such communities, at least in their first infancy, in the Fenlands of England certainly, but also in the state of New York. Artworld is by no means a religion, but it is a good and beneficial idea. And in the end it’s our artists, and foremost among them our art-angels, by which it will succeed or fail. If your interested in becoming an angel, or if you’re an angel already, it would be my pleasure to hear from you. Just send me a message, or drop me a line, or two, at  artworld@negativeentropy.net

The Exhibbit 3D Online Gallery—New Features and Differences in Exhibbit Version 4

Exhibbit Long Gallery

Exhibbit Long Gallery

ExhibbitV4

Exhibbit’s 3D gallery solution augments current online display techniques by enabling visitors to experience the atmosphere and nuances of artworks in an exhibition context.

Displaying art in a 3D gallery gives the artwork scale and allows visitors to navigate themselves–actually experiencing an exhibition as they would in a physical bricks and mortar gallery. 

Here is Exhibbit owner and developer Peter Worrall’s mini list of V4′s main features and differences from V3.

New features in V4:

  • Exhibitions are now viewable using the Flash player as well as Unity3d making exhibitions easily accessible.
    • Most browsers have Flash pre-installed so there is no need to download a player to experience exhibbitV4.
  • We now hire galleries (rather than exhibitions) 
    • You can create multiple exhibitions for showing in your gallery. 
  • An opening date is set for each exhibition when it is ready to be published. 
    • These exhibitions will show sequentially by replacing the current active exhibition, based on its opening date.
    • This also means you can be working on curating a number of future shows whilst one is active and showing in the gallery.
  • Sharing to all the major social sites and via email.
    • This is easily actioned using either the Snap & Share feature which takes a picture of your view in the gallery, or via the “share” available from each artworks information panel.
    • Both these methods contain a link to the exhibition
    • Sharing can be done by both the creator of the exhibition and the visitor.
  • Stockroom is a growing store of all the artworks you upload when creating exhibitions.
    • From the stockroom you can add to existing exhibitions or create entirely new ones.
  • Analytics
    • Each exhibition has its own analytics so you can track how many visitors have viewed and when they were there.
Exhibbit Atrium

Exhibbit Atrium

There are number of other features like artwork info text on the wall beside each work, tour order selection, wall coloring and a new frame and matte function and other tools that make the exhibition creation easier.

The Exhibbit url is still the same  www.exhibbit.com   but with a completely re-designed website.

If you want to see exhibbitV4 working in a commercial gallery website, click on the link below to visit an exhibition of work by Alexander Calder.

I hope you will consider using exhibbit’s new version to showcase and market your artwork.
