Are you on the ArtStack?

blogArtStack

ArtStack is the social media platform for art, where everyone can share and engage with art they love. ArtStack makes it easy to share art you make and remember art you love. Artists, curators and gallerists use it to reach new audiences, keep fans engaged, and discover new works through their friends and the people they follow.

The community includes some of today’s most interesting artists, curators, collectors, journalists and art enthusiasts globally – it’s still in invitation-beta, but you can sign up by clicking here: http://theartstack.com/users/signup/mariekazalia

Adding your work on ArtStack and sharing art you love on your ArtStack profile means that people can easily find your work through their friends and other people who like your work – rather than having to search for your website, which often means that people already need to know your work.

ArtStack enables anyone to engage with the world’s most exciting art and discover work by leading emerging and established artists and works. The site applies the concept of social following to art, so all the works by an artist are all on a single page, you see when a new work by an artist you like is added, and your audience can promote your work to their friends and followers. It simple to make your own online collections and see your work alongside that of artists you admire – and you can also use it to gauge how your works resonate with your audience.

Using ArtStack is simple: people browse and add images to their ‘Stack’ of art to create their own personal art profile; you can follow anyone on the platform to see the art they like and discover new works. To get the most out of the site, add your own works and also stack art by artists you like. Invite friends (they’ll follow you when they sign up) and ask them to stack your works, so that their friends will see your work. Like any social media, space out your activity, so add a few artworks or stack regularly every few days to be present.

You can sign up on the website here: http://theartstack.com/users/signup/mariekazalia

There are also free iPhone and Android apps – you can download them and start stacking directly!
 
 

New Amazon CD Trade In Program Gets You Store Credit + More Space

Have art books on your Amazon wish list you’d really love to get? ( I know my wish list is long.) Have CDs taking up space?

Amazon recently announced that they are offering a CD Trade-In Program…

Once limited to more expensive trade-in items camera gear, Kindle, iPad, iPhones, and Android tablets, Amazon’s CD Trade-In Program now let’s you search for CDs to trade-in (if they meet their acceptability criteria), ship them for free at their cost, and after processing, receive an Amazon Gift Card directly into your account.

Trade-in values start at $0.50 and go up to $6.40, $10.00 etc.

Amazon does not resell used CDs, though a variety of used and like-new offerings are available through their marketplace. It’s actually third-party merchants handling this trade-in process. If you’ve migrated to an all digital library  and still have CDs taking up space, this Amazon trade in offer may be the way to go.
