My first article is on a Cleveland sound artist, and titled: Cleveland: Chris Kulcsar- an Artist Who Uses Sound (If problems with the long link, try this short link: http://bit.ly/fcdSMG)
My second article, on a Pittsburgh sound artist, I titled– Pittsburgh: R. Weis – Compositions of Manipulated Sound (short link: http://bit.ly/gkZHfg)
My fourth article published: Germany: Light Art Photography
My fifth article published by Yahoo!
Jeanne Bessette–Painting the Human Element
I originally wrote the first four articles for the VASA project blog (http://vasa-project.com).
Since I am a member of a large group of primarily Pittsburgh artists, I put the word out that I would be writing on Pittsburgh artists working in video, photography, sound art, and digital art. The name R. Weis came up rather quickly. His fast response to my email and his enthusiasm for the article made it a pleasure to work with him, which inspired me to complete the article that same day.
For the GeneFree article, both artists graciously provided me with information and videos to view. Unfortunately, my mother died while I was working on the article, and so I had to attend to family matters. I ended up cutting my article on GeneFree short, and would have preferred to have written a lengthier article.
Working with all of the artists proved to be inspiring, and the articles flowed as I wrote them. I posted my articles to the VASA project blog with images and embedded videos. Yahoo! does not allow images unless the author of an article holds the copyright to the images, or has a license to use the images.
So, how do you get an article on your own art published? Perhaps the best way to get started is to connect with a regular contributor of an appropriate art site. Leave a comment on one of their article, then follow-up with an email. If you can’t find an email address for a contributor you would like to work with, leave your email address and site link in your comment. Some art news sites have a form for you to complete to request a feature on your art.
