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.

Artists: Add Your Site Link + Art Images + Retail Prices to Our Facebook Page

We continue to be amazed by the growing number of artists joining our Pinterest group board! Now more than 50 artists have added their art images with retail prices to our group board Art Direct from Artists.

So we’ve decided to give artists even more space. We’ve repurposed one of our Facebook pages (that we set up four years ago in 2010) to give artists opportunities to add their art images and links there too. Now artists are invited to add their art images + links + retail prices to our Facebook page Fine Art USA.

Just as we share, Tweet, and promote our Pinterest group board, we will do the same with our Fine Art USA Facebook page.

Artist Kay Vinson was the first to add her website link and image to our Fine Art USA Facebook page, and artist Lela Tabliashvili Art added the link to her own Facebook page, which I promptly *liked*, along with images of her art.  So, if you are looking for more page likes for your Facebook page, follow her lead.

There is a lot of potential with our overall project to give artists this grass-roots level promotion on Facebook and Pinterest. Join in! Artists add your art and links here.

We’re also looking for art to re-design the header of our Fine Art USA Facebook page. Your art posted to our Facebook page may be featured as our page header image, perhaps we will be rotating this image every few months. Also, to help promote, we may Tweet some of your art images from our Fine Art USA Facebook page, and share them in promotional blog posts like this one. We then also that Tweet our blog post, share it on Google+, Facebook pages, LinkedIN, Tumblr and Pinterest.
