They’re especially interested in works that take a more artistic, conceptual, or critical approach and are not simply fan-created compilations of popular TV shows. Work will be displayed during The Wall’s March First Friday installation which is seen by thousands during Oakland’s Art Murmur event. Curated by Timothy Furstnau (FICTILIS) & Christina Yglesias.

Jacks Pollock’s studio floor in the Pollock Krasner house.

We took a few days off during the Christmas holiday week and now we’re back to share the really great Studio Visit site that artists and collectors will want to know about. It’s an artist studio reservation service that is provided completely free to artists and collectors.

Studio Visit is a website for collectors to make reservations to visit artist studios searchable by city and country. So far, the main studio locations listed are cities in Germany, Spain, Mexico, Belgium and the Netherlands. Once you add your studio location your city will appear in the available locations.

Artists simply register with their studio address, name, and at least one picture of their studio. Artist/studios can add up to ten pictures of their studio space, up to ten images of their artwork, a Google map view, artist CV/Statement and other menu options.

The Studio Visit website provides a booking system. Through this system potential buyers and collectors will request a studio visit only on the days, times, and for the duration that the artist or studio configures. The booking system will ask for basic contact information from the collector that will be seen only by the artist/ studio they request to visit.

Once a collector books a studio visit reservation the studio will receive an email. In the studio account menu option RESERVATION MANAGE the reservation booking can be approved or rejected. If approved the collector will receive an email and can only go ahead with the studio visit appointment with this confirmation email.

Artist and “American Treasure” Metrov’s Excursion To Launch Relationships With Gallerists

California artist Metrov’s thirty minute film METROV: A Life in the War Zones of American Art has received accolades from such greats as Robert Zemeckis and others.

“Metrov is an American Treasure. He courageously bares his soul in this amazing and powerful film. A must-see for anyone interested in the Arts.” Robert Zemeckis, Academy Award winning director of BACK TO THE FUTURE, FORREST GUMP, CAST AWAY.

“Riveting… a great story!” Michael Lantieri, Academy Award winner, JURASSIC PARK.

“A fascinating, enjoyable film. I particularly enjoyed the unexpected humor.” Mark Johnson, Academy Award winning producer of RAIN MAN, BREAKING BAD.

 

Metrov_epostcard7

Over the past month, we’ve made first gallery contacts for Metrov sending e-postcards of his wall art. Several gallerists replied positively and each time we reported back to Metrov .  In the weeks to follow, Metrov decided to take an excursion to visit these galleries and launch in-person relationships with the gallerists. Metro reported back to us–

At Gallery A, Metrov met a nice, elderly woman gallerist with  “a nice space and some cool art.” She also has since accepted Metrov’s Facebook friend request and he plans to follow-up further.

At Gallery B, which Metrov described as a great gallery space, Metrov just missed the gallery owner. But one of the gallery curators suggested emailing the owner, which Metrov will do.

At Gallery C, Metrov met the gallery manager; “a very cool dude. We agreed to keep in touch. Later, when Metrov got home, he send a Facebook friend request to this gallery owner who accepted. Now that they are friends on Facebook they can continue to interact with images and notes.

At Gallery D, Metrov met the gallerist who had replied to our e-postcard.  Metro described him as  “A very sweet man with a brand new (although quite small) gallery and a great show”.  Metrov told him the report he had gotten from his  “Marketing Director, Marie Kazalia” from the e-postcards sent. Metro said of this meeting, “You were right! He likes my work. He was very pleased to meet me in person and we agreed to keep in touch. The courting has begun!” It was a good time to stop in, just before the opening that evening and Metrov stayed a while but then had to get going on his long drive back home.

“These are all viable spaces for my work,” Metrov said,  “and once I get to know the owners a little more I will propose exhibits to all of them. Whoa! I didn’t really want to make the 2.5 hour drive to LA (traffic is often nightmarish), but it was well worth the trip! Made me realize how important it is to meet people in person.”

Upload Pictures of Your Art Just Once to Multiple Online Galleries via New Service

 

blogRobotosforyourphotos

 

If you are an artist, you’ve probably spent hours of your valuable time adding your art images to online galleries, uploading each image individually to each site again and again. Now, there’s a new service (still being developed and coming soon). Robots for your Photos takes care of such boring and time-consuming repetitious tasks and reduces them down to one. You will upload your photos once to Robots for your Photos and the robots will add them to various photo servers and online galleries (such as Flickr, Facebook, 500px). These robots automatically connect to selected online platforms and determine the best time to publish your photographs based on collected data and an algorithm. Robots for your Photos will also collect your likes, favorites, and comments from all services into one location so you won’t have to check each service manually. Be one of the first to try Robots for your Photos here: http://robots.photos.

Two Artist Resources that Defy Categorization: Works.io and Art360 Gallery

From first view, the Art365 Gallery website has the look of an online art magazine, IMO. Although they refer to themselves as both an online art gallery and an art blog. You’ll find Featured Artists, Galleries, Glass Artists, and Art News.

Visual artists and glass artists are invited to submit for a permanent spot on this site.

- Send  a text in 300-500 characters about you, your artworks and perhaps a few words about your art technique.

- A link to your website/Facebook page.

- 6-8 quality images of your art.

They will rewrite a unique text about you and your art, show the best of your artworks and link to your website and Facebook fan page from their art blog (it’s a 100% free service). You’ll find the full details on their website.

Works.io is a sophisticated artist driven platform with a professional portfolio and CV tool for emerging fine artists to create online visibility.

Works.io is something like an artist directory, yet, when artists sign up for free they have a dashboard allowing them to add images of their art, their exhibition news, and more. Works.io also offers a monthly selection of emerging artists with more extensive text about each artist showcased. Works.io selects sophisticated art in low-key tones for their feature.

These relatively new sites have been added to our 57 page e-list of art magazines, blogs, and artist directories.

Call for Submissions: The Multiple eXposure Project Zine 1.0

Attention writers, researchers, photographers, visual artists, and image-makers!

The Multiple eXposure Project is a multimedia, multi/trans/inter-disciplinary artistic practice and research-based initiative that explores the many layers of image-making, participatory photography, visual ethnography, and performative encounter(s) between the image and the spectator.

We are happy to announce that we will be publishing the very first issue of our collaborative zine and we are now accepting submissions until December 31, 2014.

The theme of our upcoming zine is “Self-as-Subject”, an exploration of the “self” and its manifold permutations – its presence, identity, representation, liminality, and (dis)embodiment – in this day and age of digital madness, hyperreality and mobility.

The zine is multimedia so we are accepting text and image-based submissions related to the theme in any format imaginable such as: articles, essays, reviews, short stories, poetry, interviews, photographs (film or analogue), visual narratives, videos, digital art, illustrations, cartoons, mixed media, collages, experimental pieces, etc. Collaborative projects are very much welcome. Multiple entries are also accepted. Digital and printed copies of the zine will be released.

Some notes to remember:

–   Please include your name, short profile, country of origin, and blog/website (if applicable) in your email.

–   Photo submissions in jpeg format must include a title and description.

–   When necessary, please follow the proper citations (MLA style) in article submissions.

Please email your submissions to themultipleexposureproject@gmail.com. For more information on The Multiple eXposure Project, check out our website: http://www.themultipleexposureproject.co.nr.

Film and Video Resources: Panavision Free Camera Packages, Women in Film Fund, Creative Grants

blogfilmclapboard

A professor of photography once told me that she had visited the then Polaroid Corporate offices where she was given free film packages and loan of a large format camera, with Polaroid back, for the day–she had to return the equipment at the end of the day along with some of the resulting photos for the Polaroid Corporation’s collection.

Panavision, the leading designer and manufacturer of high-precision camera systems, film and digital cameras, lenses and accessories for the motion picture and television industries continues this tradition of loaning cameras in their New Filmmaker Program. If you are a student or low-budget indie filmmaker, Panavision might supply you with free camera packages. The New Filmmaker Program loans film and digital camera packages to filmmaker for student thesis films, low-budget independent features, showcase reels, Public Service Announcements, and any other type of short not-for-profit project.

If you are a creative artist with a photography, video, or film project there are now numerous newly added funding resources in our Photographers Resources PDF.

Other newly added programs include–Creative District  a new networking platform specifically for filmmakers. Their mission is to make a LinkedIn type of site specifically for filmmakers, to help film and media makers create more work.  They’re giving away up to $5,000 in grants each month for projects at any stage.  

Women In Film/Netflix Finishing Fund industry organization gives out sizable funds to films by women filmmakers, with a preference for plots about women. 

Now may be a good time to get your project off the ground, and Artist Marketing Resources provides numerous resources here.

Him, Her and Them, is a Facebook film–the first of its kind. The film will be distributed and viewed on Facebook, and will also connect with the various social networking hooks that Facebook enables (so a viewers’ social graph will change their film experience).
