Art Galleries Shift From Once-A-Year Calls To Accepting #Artist Submissions Year-Round

Yesterday, we posted here on how New York art galleries have begun to accept artist submissions on an ongoing basis.

As we double checking and triple checking every link in each gallery listing in our International Art Gallery Directory of over five thousand galleries–available here and here–we’re discovering more and more updated art gallery submission guidelines adopting this “more fluid” artist submission policy.

Here is another–

Art in General in New York City, writes–  “Responding to the current state of artistic and curatorial practice, Art in General’s Open Call has shifted from its once-a-year online deadline to a more fluid model of receiving and reviewing artists’ work. Artists are encouraged to submit project proposals at any point throughout the year.” Proposals are accepted via email –read the full submission details here.

Gallery Taking Submissions From Artists Working in Photography, Related Media, and Contemporary Craft

As we update our International Art Gallery e-list, we’re finding more and more art galleries adding Submission guidelines to their sites and Calls to Artists as well!

Capsule Gallery in Houston, Texas, USA, says that it is dedicated to exhibiting contemporary photography and contemporary craft from emerging, mid-career and established artists.

Review Capsule Gallery’s curated exhibitions on their site here to see examples of their current and archived exhibitions and their unique perspective to determine if your work may be a fit for this gallery–then submit! That’s right–Capsule Gallery is currently taking submissions open to artists working in photography and related media as well as contemporary craft, such as fiber, ceramic and jewelry. Please submit one PDF, which includes a CV, artist statement and 10 images. Capsule Gallery curators and staff will do their best to respond to every submission.

Capsule Gallery is located in the historic 1929 Isabella Court complex in midtown Houston. This complex is also home to Inman Gallery, Kinzleman Art Consulting, Samara Gallery, Art Palace and Devin Borden Gallery.

#Artists – How to Submit Your Art to Art Magazines and #Art Blogs

stack of magazines

 

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

Buy Art Magazines, Art Blogs, and Art Publication Resources E-list on @Gumroad here for a Word file or PDF version of the e-list.

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

Master Creator Attributes His Success to Learning How to Submit His Work

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).

Artists: Would You Want Your Art Printed on Condoms?

 

blogCOndomartwei_ming_ming__113

 

We always have an eye out for new ways manufacturers use art printed on their products and this one stood out (or up?) as hard to miss (pun intended). A site new to us–that we discovered when they began following us on Twitter– the Bounty Hunter offers up contests and competitions. While the winner of the art printed on condoms prize will get $1000 US Dollars, artists may wish to think through such contests. Is this art on condoms project a one-off novelty or a new trend? Will art on condoms become standard, much like art on skateboards? If soon all condoms will have art printed on them, then an art licensing royalty contract could net any artist much more than the prize amount. Or perhaps winning the prize would be a good start?

If you decide that you’d rather have an art licensing contract and receive regular royalty payments, then how do you go about finding those companies that license art from artists?

Artist Marketing Resources maintains e-lists of the best opportunities for artists here.  Find our Art Licensing resources for artists here.

You may be wondering how to make your approach to art licensing companies and artist agents with your art?

We also offer our guide to artists that includes cover letters that you can use. Get the Transmedia Artist Guide to Making Artist Submissions ebook here.

Or perhaps you would like to try simpler print-on-demand sales of your art as prints on paper or canvas or printed on products. Then get our Art Print Sales Sites + Other Print Resources here.

What Top Art Gallery in New York City Schedules Weekly Reviews With Artists?

blogExhibtition

 

There are many art galleries reviewing artist portfolios. They are highlighted in yellow on our 361 page e-list. Get the gallery e-list here.

During seven months of the year, a top gallery in New York City schedules weekly appointments with artists to meet with them in person. The gallery has a set number of time slots per week that are allotted to artists who call to reserve a space. The gallerist meets with each artist one-on-one to review the artist’s printed portfolios or images on disc on computer screen.

I’m not going to state the name of the gallery in this article. I don’t want to contribute to an overload of calls.  I love their policy of meeting with artists each week–it’s considerate of artists and an excellent way to get to know new artists and review their submissions.

Find out the name of the gallery here.

Artists: Use Free Tools on CuratorSpace to Manage Your Art Submissions

blogCuratorSpacelogo_and_title

Artist may open a free account on the CuratorSpace site and add your details and images for creating your submissions for Open Studios, Artist book fair exhibitor applications, Arts and crafts fair applications, Residency proposals, Exhibition proposals, Artist portfolio, 2D/3D art, film/video, and sound art. The advantage of creating your submissions in these categories  on CreateSpace is that you won’t have to recreate the entire submission for each opportunity. For instance, if you submit to Open Studio every year, all your details are already in place for reuse. The same with your exhibition proposal, you can reuse your proposal for multiple submissions. Make as many submissions as you like with just a few clicks. A real timesaver!

The CuratorSpace site also has a list of exhibition opportunities for artists and if you have a project the site allows you to create your own call for artists and accept submissions.

For more help with submissions, read the Transmedia Artist Guide to Making Artist Submissions ebook

Looking for Submissions from Artists for Magazine Cover Art Publication Opportunity

I received a request from Beth, to share the news with artists that they are seeking artwork to publish on the cover of The Reader–here are the details:

Dear Marie,

I’m writing from The Reader Organisation, a social enterprise in the North West. We work to connect people with great literature through shared reading. We also publish a quarterly literary magazine called The Reader which offers great writing wherever we can find it, presenting big names and new voices side by side.

We’re always looking for submissions from cover artists to showcase their talent and to help them gain more exposure, and I wondered whether it would be possible to list The Reader under Art Magazines and Publications Submit list?

To read a little bit more about The Reader, please see our website: http://www.thereader.org.uk/magazine.aspx

As Beth requested, I’ve added The Reader to the Artist Marketing Resource list of Art Magazines, art blogs, art publishers for #artists to submit to increase visibility.  Click here to access that PDF list.

The Art Galleries that do accept submissions from artists

blogkeysfreedigtialphotosdotnet

Dear Artist

Many artists who sell their work online would also love to gain gallery representation to increase their reputation. But how do you find a gallery for your work? The good news is that there are a lot of art galleries out there that accept submissions from artists! Locating the right ones for you may seem an impossible chore. We know. We’ve been researching galleries for years. To help artists we make our research available in our 200+ page International Art Gallery PDF 

Here are just a few examples from our PDF of International art galleries–all in the United States–

Altered Esthetics in Minneapolis, Minnesota and ArtistRun Gallery in Long Island City, New York are two that make it easy for artists to submit.

Altered Esthetics has an online submission form on their site–www.alteredesthetics.com plus an email address specifically for artists to use for making submissions for consideration for future exhibitions.

ArtistRun Gallery, Long Island City, New York, also has an online submissions form.

When you visit gallery sites be sure to read their submissions policies–which change frequently–

Recently, the La Luz de Jesus gallery in Los Angeles, a top influential gallery of lowbrow, post-pop and pop-surrealist art, revised their submission policy to accept artist submissions from Oct 1st – December 31st only.

Some art galleries have Artist Liaisons on staff who prefer to receive email submissions and no phone calls from artists.

Dolby Chadwick Gallery in San Francisco, has submission guidelines on their site that state– “Artist submissions are only accepted via email with the subject line “Submissions.” Include 72dpi images or an artist website for consideration.”

If you are confident that you have a good sense of how to write a cover letter and that the jpeg images of your art are properly sized and labeled, then you can submit via email to any art gallery that accepts submissions. If you need help with your approach, read the ebook Transmedia Artist Guide to Making Artist Submissions.

Luna Rienne Gallery, also in San Francisco, has this statement on their website–“We seek new artists and curators to assist in expanding our existing program. Please send online portfolios and proposals to (email address provided)”

Artists, we’ve made it easy for you to review many more international art galleries that accept artist submissions by providing the links to thousands of international art galleries listed in our resource PDF–International Art Galleries.
