Maybe you’re feeling a bit rusty after taking time off during the holiday season and now you’re eager to reset and restarted in the new year with new ideas and new plans for your art. Many people have mixed feelings right now–during the first week or two of a new year–and you may too. Some may feel eager and optimistic, even wistfully hopeful for the months ahead, while others tend to be more earth-bound in their expectations.
Right now could be a good time for a reality check and a little tough love, especially when it comes to where and how best to place your efforts when it comes to promoting your art.
Here are some thoughts on getting off to a good start in 2017!
So you want more visibility for your work in 2017! Great goal! How do you spend your time wisely to reach your goals?
While, yes, there are plenty of art magazines and blogs that will feature your work at no cost, do you really know how and where to find all the best opportunities for your work? And, by the way, what is the best way to show your art to magazine editors? How many art galleries accepting submissions could you find on your own and how long would it take you and at what cost? What valuable opportunities are you missing out on in the meantime?
Plan to use your money and time wisely and effectively in 2017
The internet has powerful search tools that cost you little more than your time, the cost of a computer, and the price of an internet connection. But, is spending hours and hours of your time searching online wearing you down and discouraging you? It can get pretty dull day after day, and confusing–just how do you organize what you’ve found?
The True Costs
Have you really calculated how much an hour of your time is worth and then multiplied your hourly worth and expenses by the total number of hours spent searching? Wouldn’t you rather be spending your time making more art and getting it out to the best opportunities as quickly as possible? Also the time you spend searching online may be time better spent developing your pitch and actually getting your CV, Artist Statement and artwork images out to be viewed and reviewed.
And how about your jpeg images — are they professionally labeled for submissions? That alone can take hours of your time.
We’ve understood all of these things for a very long time! Artist Marketing Resources recently celebrated its 8 year anniversary providing artists with information resources and opportunities. That’s right, we’ve spent the past eight years compiling valuable resources for artists, working with artists, and helping artists understand how best to present their work.
Now here’s where the reality check and tough love come in.
Why do what others have already done and are making available to you?
If you really think that you can go online and find hundreds and even thousands of opportunities for your art in an afternoon or two of online searching then you are just not being realistic. You couldn’t get that accomplished in weeks or months even. You may not be spending your time productively. You may be caught up in what is known as busy work. You work hard every day but you are just not sure that you are engaged in the right efforts to reach your goals. By not calculating your true cost in time and total long-term expenses you may be spending your time, energy, and resources where they are least effective. How many valuable opportunities are you missing out on while placing your efforts in the wrong place at the wrong time?
Don’t re-do thousands of hours!
We’ve already spent thousands of hours doing the research for you and we want to share that information, to help you. We want you to put your valuable time and other resources toward your creative work. We’ve already spent thousands of hours organizing resources to help you cut back on your expenses. Don’t repeat our efforts!
Calculate Your True Costs
Realistically, why not calculate what an hour of your time is worth–give yourself an hourly salary amount of $25-35, and add your hourly internet connection cost + the cost of computer use + overhead + utilities. That’s how any business calculates their expenses.
( If you are not familiar with the term overhead–it’s just that–how much does it cost for you to use the space, or to have the roof over your head, while you use your computer and do your research? That includes calculating the square footage of your office space, and the corresponding percentage amount of your rent or mortgage payment, insurance, property taxes, utilities, furniture, equipment and any other expense involved for you to use that space.)
If you can immediately cut those expenses and research time down to a fraction, wouldn’t you do that?
That’s what we are offering you.
We’re sharing thousands of hours of research at a fraction of the cost of to you and at a fraction of what others would charge if they had our resources. Yes, we’ve been told that an e-list sold by others for $150 only contains listings for art galleries in one country–Italy.
Our e-list of art galleries is a fraction of the price and contains extensive galleries listings within all 50 states in the US and extensive listings of art galleries in countries Internationally. Plus our e-list resource contains gallery submission guidelines and policies–highlighted in red so they are easy to find. Our art gallery e-list consists of over 560 pages and approximately 10, 000 art gallery listings.
We also offer an extensive resource e-list of art licensing companies and their submission guidelines, a resource e-list of art magazines and publishers, other of our resource e-lists feature print sales opportunities, photography agents and sales venues, and another on art consultants. And if you need help with your submissions we have an ebook guide, and offer one-on-one services.
Again the question we asked at the outset–How many art galleries accepting submissions could you find on your own and how long would it take you and at what cost? What valuable opportunities are you missing out on in the meantime? Plan to use your money and time wisely and effectively in 2017 by letting us help you.

A neighbor, who runs every morning, mentioned seeing wild turkeys in a certain area. So I took notice while driving one morning and saw seven wild turkeys in a farmer’s field near some woods. Since then I see wild turkeys everywhere–I’ve even had them in my yard. It’s kind of interesting how we notice things the more we start looking for them and are more open to seeing what others point out to us. Many photographers know that the more they look the more they see to photograph.
All artists who start looking for opportunities for their art–whether it’s for features in art magazines and art blogs, or for the best print sales venues– find many more great opportunities using our resources. Or if you are an artist wishing to connect with art dealers, art consultants and gallerists–our extensive e-lists will save you time narrowing down the best venues for your fine art and photography.
I shop at a local grocery store that offers Buy-One-Get-One-Free items, and I appreciate that! So I’m making the same offer to artists.
Artist Marketing Resources continues to compile and update our extensive e-lists of information for artists– such as, our e-list of art consultants available here and e-list of art magazines (as well as other resource for artists): photography e-list, and places to sell your art here–all newly updated!
One listing in our Art Magazines resources e-list is a cross-over listing, since it is both an art magazine and a San Francisco based art gallery that accepts artist submissions. Not only that, but they are currently seeking film photography submissions of images–crossing over, yet again, into our Photography resources e-list.
It’s a big job, but we are at work continually researching and updating our resource e-lists for artists and photographers–when you purchase via our Webs store you have access to the iCloud share file version which is continually updated. I you purchase via our GUMROAD shop you will receive updated versions of the PDF and Word files every few months.
Right now, if you make a purchase an e-list or e-book in either of our online stores, you can get a free e-book or e-list of your choice–BUY ONE GET ONE FREE

Artists–When you see a really great artist feature online do you wonder how to get your art featured?
I’ve had many years experience submitting my own writing and art to magazines (and getting published), as well as working on behalf of artists to get their art submitted and published. Sometimes, I assume that all artists know how to make a submission. Well, maybe not completely–after all I did write an ebook guide for artists on how to make submissions— available here.
What I found out recently, especially for very young artists with lesser experience, is that many artists just don’t know how to get their art into magazines–online or in print!
I’m Not Passing Judgement But I Want to Help
To help artists find publications that will feature their work, I’ve spent years compiling a sharable e-list of art magazines. Each art magazine in this e-list has a link to the publication’s website. What I’ve recently discovered, especially for those very young artists again and also artists who love the seclusion of private time in their studios, is that many artists just don’t know how to use my e-list! (They have less difficulty with my e-list of art galleries, art consultants, and other resources for artists).
Some artists don’t seem to understanding that when they find an art magazine that they’d like to see their work in, that they need to read that magazine’s submission guidelines. What I’m finding out is that some artists don’t know where or how to look for the submission guidelines and how to make submissions to magazines. (There are art magazines that make it super simple with a big SUBMIT button on their site, but many do not.)
So what should artists do?
If you are new to submitting your work to art magazines and blogs, my advice is to start out with the easy ones that features artists selected from submissions of a few low resolution images. Submit to a few of those and once you begin to learn the process of making submissions your understanding will expand and grow.
To make it easier for artists to use my art magazine e-list I’ve made it super simple by adding submission details to each magazine listing. So, if a magazine has a specific submission procedure–such as– submit 3 image of your art to email@submit(dot) co– I’ve included that all spelled-out for that magazine in the alphabetical listings of my e-list. If the submission guidelines aren’t too long I’ve include them and/or a direct link to where you can read those guidelines. For more advanced submissions the art publication listing will contain the editor’s contact information and other details or a link to where you can find them. (Some art magazines have a huge long list of editor’s names and email addresses).
If you feel you need some help that’s fine–it never hurts to ask–just let me know! Right now, I’m offering a free email consultation to any artist who purchases my E-list of Art Magazines and Art Blogs. Get it here and here and then let me know your questions and how I can help. Review the e-list, select a few art magazines that you’d like to see your work in — then we can talk about how to make your submissions to those magazines. Email Marie: MarieKazalia@gmail.com

Why get your art into magazines?
Some artists are puzzled and think having a website is enough. Really? I’m not passing judgement, but I am trying to understand why some artists just don’t get it. Then I’m offering to help in any way I can.
A magazine feature gives you credibility with art collectors, art galleries, art consultants, interior designers and other arts professionals. There are art gallerists who will expect to see your print magazine and online art features–that is, they expect you to have some publication credits in your CV (Curriculum Vitae or résumé )! Simply put, if you have publication credits then that shows that others (editors and publishers) are interested in your work, consider you a professional artist who is doing interesting and newsworthy work and want to work with you.
Think about these things, submit your art, get some features and then you will understand. An artist feature also brings visitors to your website, gives you some news to share in your newsletter and on social media.
So again, If you feel you need some help, that’s fine–it never hurts to ask–just let me know! Right now, I’m offering a free email consultation to any artist who purchases my E-list of Art Magazines and Blogs. Buy it here and here then let me know your questions and what you need help with. Review the e-list, select a few art magazines that you’d like to see you work in — then we can talk about how to make your submissions to those magazines. Email Marie: MarieKazalia@gmail.com
I’ve been telling artists for years to submit their work! So I felt validated by a great master when I read this quote–
“Think up ideas for stories, go out and shoot them, and then send them in to the magazines. I was lucky; I figured that out when I was young.” Stanley Kubrick
This great, important and successful filmmaker started out as a photographer and unknown. He got his start by submitting his work and getting it into magazine.
This applies to all artists working in all materials and styles — you should be submitting your work to appropriate art magazines, art consultants, art galleries, interior designers, and art licensing companies.
I wrote and published an e-book guide to help artists make submissions (available here) and e-lists of resources to help artists quickly and easily find the best places submit their work. I continue to compile my extensive and growing e-list of art and design magazines where you can submit your work for a feature (available here), and an e-list of links to over 5,000 USA and international art galleries (here), an e-list of art consultants (here) and art licensing companies (here). Plus specialized e-lists of print sales sites (here) and photography agents and resources (here).

We’ve known about Fiverr for a few years now, and after hearing of creative people making as much as $47,000 per year on the Fiverr site from sales of their creative services, we decided to give it a try for ourselves. So we’re taking it for a test drive–perhaps rather skeptically at first!
