The Big Ink website and blog has a current call to artists to take part in a collaborative large woodcut project. Monumental prints inspire artists and the public alike to think big, set long-term goals, and have the perseverance to see complex projects to fruition.
Each year artists from all backgrounds including sculpture, photography, painting, and print participate. Artists are invited to submit a proposal to create a woodcut at least 24 x 36 inches in dimension via an open call for entry. If accepted, artists are given two months to carve their image into a piece of plywood. At the end of the two months, all the artists meet for a printing session at a local print studio and help one another print their woodcuts onto paper. Typically between 30 to 36 hand pulled prints are produced during two days of printing sessions. Each artist donates one print to the BIG INK portfolio.
The Printeresting site welcomes submissions for Printeresting content: artwork, news, exhibitions, book releases, reviews, or random moments of print. They also accept submissions from guest contributors. If you’d like submit an article for possible inclusion on Printeresting, please register on the site and a password will be emailed to you. Then log in, draft a post, and submit it to Printeresting editorial review
Printeresting, as a rule, does not publish announcements for kick starters or other fundraisers, calls for entry, holiday sales, and other opportunities. But feel free to use their classifieds page to share these types of items.
From first view, the Art365 Gallery website has the look of an online art magazine, IMO. Although they refer to themselves as both an online art gallery and an art blog. You’ll find Featured Artists, Galleries, Glass Artists, and Art News.
Visual artists and glass artists are invited to submit for a permanent spot on this site.
– Send a text in 300-500 characters about you, your artworks and perhaps a few words about your art technique.
– A link to your website/Facebook page.
– 6-8 quality images of your art.
They will rewrite a unique text about you and your art, show the best of your artworks and link to your website and Facebook fan page from their art blog (it’s a 100% free service). You’ll find the full details on their website.
Works.io is a sophisticated artist driven platform with a professional portfolio and CV tool for emerging fine artists to create online visibility.
Works.io is something like an artist directory, yet, when artists sign up for free they have a dashboard allowing them to add images of their art, their exhibition news, and more. Works.io also offers a monthly selection of emerging artists with more extensive text about each artist showcased. Works.io selects sophisticated art in low-key tones for their feature.
These relatively new sites have been added to our 57 page e-list of art magazines, blogs, and artist directories.
