ArtWorld Invites Artists to add their Banner Art to the Changing Online Billboard Space

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:

ART WORLD

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.

Why Art Published by PoetsandArtists Ends Up In So Many Art Collections

I asked Didi Menendez –What brings art collectors to your site? Why have so many purchases been made of artworks published in Poets and Artists? How do you account for this since you are not an online art sales site?

Didi replied–“I attribute the success of the publication to quality versus quantity. I only publish artwork based on my aesthetics and not the mass media. I do not accept advertisers or any other monies because I do not want anyone to dictate what I publish. To me publishing is also an art form. It is a creative outlet for me. I make sure to get the publications in the right hands. I also recently started publishing iARTistas which has a different feel to it.”

iArtistas is an iPAD/digital/print publication.  You will find the submission guidelines by clicking on *Submit* in the top menu on both the PoetsandArtists and the iArtistas sites.

Most of the paintings published by PoetsandArtists are figure studies and portraits– also themes of the Howard Tullman Collection. Take a walk-through with the collector in this YouTube video.

ISP–International Artists’ Program

The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) is a leading nonprofit, residency-based contemporary art institution for emerging to mid-career artists and curators from around the world. In 2008, ISCP moved from Manhattan to East Williamsburg, Brooklyn to the former factory of the Sackett & Wilhelms Lithography Company, an 18,000 square-foot building constructed in 1901. This move expanded ISCP’s facilities to 35 studios, an exhibition gallery and a project space. To advance its core mission of supporting artists in producing and exhibiting a wide range of contemporary, often experimental, artistic approaches, ISCP annually presents a series of innovative exhibitions and public programs both on- and off-site. Each year, over 100 artists and curators are in residence at ISCP and approximately 10,000 individuals attend ISCP’s public programs.

Making It In the Art World, Brainard Carey’s New Book Published by Allworth Press

Making It In the Art World, New Approaches to Galleries, Shows, and Raising Money, a new book by Brainard Carey, was released last week by Allworth Press in both paperback and Kindle editions.

“This book is for the professional artist or the artist who wants to learn to be a professional,” Brainard Carey states in his introduction. Although that may sound like the beginning of a conventional how to book, just a few sentences further on Carey congratulates artists for being innovators in a world that values creativity, urging artist to bypass the traditional gallery system for more unconventional methods of getting their art to market. According to Carey, there is a burgeoning DIY movement going on that also pertains to visual artists doing it all themselves–their own marketing, promoting, and selling directly to the public.

Carey asks the question, “what if you could create a way of working with money that was as creative as making art? “

He then examines some of the creative ways that artists have sold their work and managed their art careers on their on terms.

Carey’s paradigm shift infuses his own brand of enthusiasm and methods of idea development with a tone that challenges artists to come up with their own new ways of earning money from their creativity. For artists already working outside the system and engaged in self-promotion and marketing, Carey presents “tools to pursue your dreams” — several chapters of practicable ideas containing real life steps to finding a patron, proposing an exhibit to a curator, and how the right winning attitude can make things happen.

Other “tools” contained in the 217 pages of Making It In the Art World include sample letters, a “workbook” portions of each chapter, and techniques on time management that Carey refers to as “the golden key” that will unlock possibilities.


This book is for artists looking for “ways to become more energized, more focused, and more productive,” Carey stated.

Brainard Carey

Brainard Carey and his wife Delia were included in the 2002 Whitney Biennial– a turning point in both of their art careers. Later, they jointly designed and continue to run their consulting business The Art World Demystified—providing mentoring services for creative artists. Brainard Carey personally coaches and advises artists on developing a professional art career. Yale University radio WYBCX hosts Brainard Carey’s show, The Art World Demystified, on which Carey has interviewed such art world luminaries as the art critic Arthur Danto.
