Artists ask how to create their own NFT art and where to sell it to art collectors.
This post is an introductory outline of resources, not intended to be a How-To article.
Investigate these artist resources to Create and Sell NFTs.
First: What is NFT?:
NFTs can be used to represent photographs, audio, video, digital paintings and more. NFT or Non-Fungible Tokens are digital data in what is called a blockchain, that certifies a digital asset to be unique.
Simply put, your digital tokens are one-of-a-kind artworks collectors seek.
Turn Your Art Into NFT:
You will need cryptocurrency such as Ethereum.
If, like me, you have accumulated different crypto currencies over the years, you can try using the MetaMask app to interface currency sites and set up your cryptocurrency wallet. MetaMask is a free downloadable app available for iPhone and Android.
Use Ethereum ?
Where Artists Sell and Collectors Buy. Create Account, Add your NFTs:
You are going to want to investigate OpenSea, Mintable, and Crypto.com.
Take a look at the featured NFT art on the OpenSea platform for both artists and collectors.
Note: To set up your artist account on OpenSea you will need a cryptocurrency wallet.

Artists Thrive: Raising the Value of Artists
By Genie Davis
Artists Thrive is not a single organization nor is it a collection of organizations. Rather, it helps individual artists and support organizations to live up to their ultimate potential.
The best way to uncover the personal assessment tools Artists Thrive offers, and kind of community interaction it encourages, is to visit the site and take the profile test at https://www.artiststhrive.org/
Casey Summar, a Carpinteria-based consultant on the project, discusses the context and meaning of Artists Thrive.
“It came about as a result of conversations among grantees and other organizations that the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation supports,” Summar says, of Artists Thrive’s roots. The Tremaine Foundation funds innovative projects that offer practical solutions to basic societal problems.
“The foundation is the backbone support of this. The conversation really started with…

A few days ago, we announced our take-over and re-opening of ArtWorld.
We’ve had a great response, already adding over a dozen artists and an artist collective to our list of Contributing Editors. Facebook says that there is no limit to the number of people we can add in roles on our page! So we’d like to add hundreds of artists as Contributing Editors to share their art and art news.
Now we want to open up and enliven the ArtWorld banner/header space for artists to add their art banners there, as well. Our vision is a changing billboard of your art banners at the top of ArtWorld.
As a Contributing Editor, artists simply click on the CHANGE COVER button at the upper left corner of the banner header space to add their own banner–such as to announce a studio sale, online shop sale, exhibition, new work added to online portfolio, and art group or art collective events. The banner will also appear in the main page feed where the artist can then add their link and text description in a comment. Ideally, our artists will be adding new banners frequently!
Artists are also invited to create banners to brand ArtWorld and to inform visitors and label the overall space, such as, a banner with the text of your choice, or a clever aphorism or saying about art. We’d also like to see banners with the text:
And perhaps some phrases such as:
SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL ARTISTS
Art Direct From Artists
Artists are welcome to change the cover art to any banner they create at any time! (Use your own art, your own photos with text, or art and photos by permission. We don’t want copyright infringements.)
ArtWorld is lightly curated. That means if we know you and like what you do you will be accepted. If we meet you and like what you do you will be accepted. Very few may not fit and we may have other specialized platforms for their work. If you are a visual artist, sound artist, video or photographic artist, or handmade maker of any sort, and you’d like to find out more about becoming an ArtWorld Contributing Editor, *Like* the ArtWorld on Facebook and send a message there. Replies to messages made daily.
The Artworld Facebook page is now owned by Artist Marketing Resources!
As of November 2018 Artist Marketing Resources has taken-over the ArtWorld Facebook page in order to revive it into an active arts community where artists can share images of their work, exhibition news and articles.
CALL TO ARTISTS
Artist Marketing Resources is seeking visual artists/ sound artists/ photographic artists/ handmade makers or all kinds to contribute news about their work to the ArtWorld.
If you are an artist and would like to contribute your own art, articles, or artworks of your friends and connections, then send ArtWorld a message on Facebook to receive an automated response containing the email address for Artist Marketing Resources owner, Marie Kazalia. Send Marie an email and be sure to include a link to your online portfolio, blog or website where she can view your work. Tell her what you would like to contribute to ArtWorld and how often you can contribute. She will reply to your direct email and give you access to post to the ArtWorld page.
The ArtWorld currently has over 8,400 followers. The main goal of ArtWorld, now under ownership management of Artist Marketing Resources, is to help bring visibility to artists!
Visit the ArtWorld Facebook page here.
If you have any questions feel free to contact Marie Kazalia via email: MarieKazalia@gmail.com
Reminding you to support the arts this season by purchasing your holiday gifts directly from artists.
Find over 125 individual artworks, along with prices, pinned to our newest Pinterest board Art Direct From Artists. Contact the artists directly! They will love to hearing from you.

Mining the Mojave for Art: Chelsea Dean’s Remnants of Ambition
By Genie Davis
It would be hard to underestimate the appeal of the desert as an artistic mecca. The vastness of the landscape, the shifting light, the vast horizons, and the lack of what passes for civilization or the ruins thereof is the stuff of magic to me. Ghost towns, abandoned shacks and mines, rusted trucks, and discarded furniture, the left-behinds of those who came, who stayed, who departed again, perhaps defeated by the vastness, the heat, the dryness, the sheer emptiness they could not fill – it’s a mystery the mind wants to explain, a story that no one but the vicissitudes of time and weather can account for.
It was with great anticipation, then, that I viewed the culmination of Chelsea Dean’s artist-in-residence exhibition at Shoebox Projects…

Just launched– a brand new directory at Small Shop Co.
Small Shop Co is an Online Directory for anyone who loves to support makers and shop small.
Let’s make shopping small easy!
We know how hard it is for small businesses to stand out in the crowd. You have access to limited resources and you work very hard for every customer that comes through the door.
On the other hand, its really hard for customers to find great small shops, and many are out there searching for new products. We want to introduce shoppers to new small businesses and help makers grow their business.
Do you run a Small Shop?

A PERFORMANCE AFFAIR, THE NEW PLATFORM DEDICATED TO THE ECONOMIES OF PERFORMANCE ART is presenting a myriad of performances for sale by emerging and mid-career artists and featuring Violent Incident, an historic performance video by Bruce Nauman, an auctioned immaterial work by Philippe Parreno, an interactive performance installation by Greg Finger– A PERFORMANCE AFFAIR will put the whole spectrum of the economies of performance art on display and for discussion.
A PERFORMANCE AFFAIR ANNOUNCES ITS LIST OF PARTICIPANTS FOR THE PANOPTICON EDITION– ACTIVATING THE PANOPTICON:
The Panopticon, A PERFORMANCE AFFAIR’s first edition, transforms the second floor of the Vanderborght Building into an immersive space for three days of performances in collaboration with the Brussels Gallery Weekend (7 to 9 September 2018).
Inspired by the notion of the Panopticon and the building’s unique architecture, continuous and overlapping performance works by international artists will be presented throughout the dynamic venue.
A PERFORMANCE AFFAIR is a new Brussels based association with international outreach dedicated to performance art. Set up as a not-for-profit organisation, APA is an evolving structure that brings together artists, galleries, collectors and institutions to research and discuss current tendencies in performance art and the economic structures around it. A PERFORMANCE AFFAIR is not another art fair, but a flexible stage aimed at stimulating the acquisition of performance while finding solutions for its development and sustainability. Events are open to the public and free of charge.
A PERFORMANCE AFFAIR is powered by Liv Vaisberg_ Office for Art & Design and Will Kerr acurated.space.
A ROUND TABLE DISCUSSION Follows:
A wrap-up event at the end of the first edition of A PERFORMANCE AFFAIR: The Panopticon Edition, the round table encourages participants, key players as well as any interested member of the public to discuss some keys questions driving the development of collecting performance art.
While there has been considerable attention around collecting performance in recent years, it remains a niche activity with narratives primarily circulating around a few key artists and collections. The round table is an opportunity for the speakers, participants in APA and members of the public to exchange and explore the conditions that need to be created to make a broader market around performance art.
Some key questions–
What commercial frameworks and strategies exist for selling, circulating and conserving performance art, and what do they have in common with those of more traditional art objects, and where do they differ? What other strategies exist for the support of performance art? What might we learn from making comparisons with economies that
exist around disciplines such as dance, music and theatre? What status do props, drawing, photography and other documentation hold, and how are they presented in relation to the live act, within market contexts and collections–both public and private?
When and Where:
Sunday 9 September, 14:00
In APA Bureau
Vanderborght Building, 2nd floor,
rue de L’Ecuyer 50 Schildknaapstraat – 1000 Brussels – Belgium

PicFair is also actively working toward a greater equality for women photographers with their Women Behind the Lens annual competitions.
PicFair launched the Women Behind the Lens competition in 2017 to highlight the gender imbalance in the commercial photography industries, where just 2% of photographers on the books at major commercial agencies are women, and only 5% of the images used by leading photography publishers are from the lenses of female photographers.
Women can submit to the 2018 Women Behind the Lens competition from August 1st to October 1st, 2018 in four categories: PORTRAIT, NATURE, ARCHITECTURE, STREET LEVEL
(You can also upload up to one thousand of your photographs for sale on the PicFair site at prices you set.)
HOW TO ENTER
This competition is open to women worldwide – to enter, sign-up to Picfair, agree to the terms and conditions and start uploading your images. During upload, you will set a price which allows publishers to license your images via Picfair. To choose a category, visit the pic page, select ‘Submit Image’ at the top of the page and choose a category from the pop up.
- Sign up to Picfair (it’s Free) and proceed to the Upload page
- Upload images to Picfair

Founded in 2009, Arquetopia Foundation is an internationally established, award-winning nonprofit arts and cultural foundation with a social scope that emphasizes critical thinking through artistic practices. Our customized International Artist-in-Residence Programs are the largest and most reputable in Latin America, with an array of contents anchored in a solid structure of collaborations with prominent cultural institutions, renowned experts, and notable artists. We are invested in approaching art and art history with a critical perspective by understanding Mexico and Peru’s complexity in context and incorporating nuances in narratives and interpretation especially of the 3,000-year heritage of visual culture of these two countries. Our residency programs offer competitive professional opportunities for emerging and mid-career, national and international artists, designers, curators, art historians, art educators, writers, journalists, and cultural researchers age 22 and over.
Artists-in-residence are introduced to a better understanding of Mexico or Peru’s Mesoamerican and colonial past, its modern present, and while producing, they learn to challenge contemporary art and what are considered traditional art practices; therefore, Arquetopia aids this process with a series of weekly individual meetings, discussion, critiques, and a critical bibliography that are tailored to each artist’s needs. The ultimate goal is for artists to learn new methods and techniques while questioning their own practice in the hopes of extending the critical discussion to other communities.
We are currently welcoming applications for the following residency programs in the Sacred Valley of the Incas of Cusco, Peru:

We’re happy to share images and an invitation to the new Sego Lily Dam land art project of artist Patricia Johanson in Sugar House Park, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.
Patricia says, “The project is five blocks long, so impossible to photograph (in its entirety). It continues under the highway, and through a “canyon” that is the spillway for the dam. In the opposite direction, the stem is a trail, but also the path of flash floods, and at the end of that is the “Lily” root-bulb overlooking a creek (Parley’s Creek).”
Women are speaking out in two growing campaigns. The Let’s Make the Industry 50/50 Initiative was “founded with a mission to effect drastic and measurable change as it pertains to the roles and participation of women within the creative industries.” If you would like to sign the petition, join the directory, or just want to find out more– visit the 50/50 Initiative site.

Come Grow With Us!
After years of working with our old format Pinterest account, we have just created a new Pinterest Business account for Artist Marketing Resources. You can grow with us.
We’re setting up new options for artists on our Artist Marketing Resources Pinterest business account here. On it we’ll focus on promoting the art of our readers. (It’s all brand new and kind of bare at the moment–but it won’t stay that way for long!)
Many artists already post their art to our old Pinterest group board Art Direct From Artists and in the past we’ve promoted the board and artists heavily on Twitter.
Now you can be one of the first artists to join our new business Pinterest account version of Art Direct From Artists and add pinned images of your art available directly to buyers!
How to join Art Direct From Artists and add your art image pins–
Step 1: follow Artist Marketing Resources on Pinterest–click here to follow
Step 2: send an email (to: firstname.lastname@example.org) or send a private message on the Pinterest platform letting us know that you want to join our artists group board Art Direct From Artists.
Step 3: Check your Pinterest followers (look for Artist Marketing Resources–we’ll follow you back) and check your Pinterest invitations. Once you find our invitation to join Art Direct From Artists, accept the invitation and you can start adding pins of your own art available for sale to buyers! Include your retail prices on your art image pins! Buyers will contact you directly.
You benefit from our promotions of the group board Art Direct From Artists in our feature articles published here and on other magazine and blog platforms. Our Twitter tweets feature the group board link and select artworks, and we talk about the group board in discussions on other social media platforms.
Our past promotions of Art Direct From Artists have brought artists on the group board more visibility! It works. We know because artists who pinned their art to our old group board– which is a few years old now– have reported sales that tracked back to our Pinterest group board!
We Want to Hear From You
Let us know what other group boards you’d like us to add to our new Pinterest business account, and if we like your idea we’ll not only create the board, and invite you to join, but we’ll tweet your link and give you a shout out too on Twitter as a thank you. Just leave on comment on this article to get things started.
I spent new years eve at a small beach party in Mexico–and yes, I am trying to sympathize with all of you in snow, and for being stuck in what I’ve heard has been an unusually cold and snowy winter in the eastern parts of the US. But I’m using wifi on a tropical beach, enjoying the sound of the waves, and reminiscing on how ten years ago (in late January and early February) I started creating what is now Artist Marketing Resource.
I really need the beach time, and haven’t published as many articles of late, and yet artists all over the world continue to use this site around the clock.
Our most popular article offers 40 free Etsy listings–read it here. Every day of the year, multiple artists sign up using the link in our article to get their 40 free listings. I receive an email from Etsy each time one does! Plus I get free listings each time an artist signs up. So I have thousands by now and I’d like to find some nice art items in Mexico to offer in my Etsy shop.
Another popular article tells artists how to use the “97” shipping codes on their art shipments to avoid paying extra fees–and doesn’t everyone want to know about that! Here is the link to the article.
Artists remain very interested in labeling their artworks without using the term “acrylic” for various reasons–and you can read that article here.
Our most popular resource–besides all the useful information here on this site–is our hugely expanded International Art Gallery Directory–now over 800 pages in length! If you’d like to find out how to get a digital copy click here. The International Art Gallery Directory is available in various formats, including a printable Word file, printable PDF, and in iCloud which you can access and use on your iPad or other tablet, cell phone, and computer.
If you need anything do not hesitate to make contact. Some artist do call–but many calls are not getting through to me down here on the beach! So the best way is via email at email@example.com
ELLO artists call themselves Artists helping Artists–and they do! If you are an artist looking for opportunities to collaborate on various projects to gain exposure, then check-out what they have to offer.
