Amazon Identifies Art With High Buyer Interest (Part 1)

Amazon dot com sent us a list of our store artworks that receive a lot of interest from shoppers but are not getting equivalent sales. They suggested that we set up some promotional offers to get those interested to make the decision to purchase the artworks. So for a limited time we’re offering two popular prints by artist Walt Curlee at a special reduced price.

Packing and Shipping Limited Edition Jimi Hendrix Giclee Canvas Art to Buyer

Jimi Hendrix & His 1969 Corvette Stingray 20 x 13 inch stretch canvas Giclee printed –buy on Amazon.com here.

Once the order came in, artist Chris Osborne had this Jimi Hendrix Giclee canvas art print custom printed, stretched and varnished, to ship to the Amazon buyer. She snapped iPhone photos as she packaged the artwork for shipping.

 She wanted to package the canvas print with care– “I start with foam core larger than the piece then attach a margin of foam core strips around the edges.  Add an extra layer on the outside of cardboard.  Finish with lots of final packing tape around the outside edges,” Chris Osborne says. “Done!  Phew! I spent one and one-half hours carefully packing the limited edition artwork.”

“P.S. the shine on the print in the second photo is the plastic wrapping around the print.”

Studio Visit Site for Making Reservations to Visit Artist Studios

Jacks Pollock’s studio floor in the Pollock Krasner house.

We took a few days off during the Christmas holiday week and now we’re back to share the really great Studio Visit site that artists and collectors will want to know about. It’s an artist studio reservation service that is provided completely free to artists and collectors.

Studio Visit is a website for collectors to make reservations to visit artist studios searchable by city and country. So far, the main studio locations listed are cities in Germany, Spain, Mexico, Belgium and the Netherlands. Once you add your studio location your city will appear in the available locations.

Artists simply register with their studio address, name, and at least one picture of their studio. Artist/studios can add up to ten pictures of their studio space, up to ten images of their artwork, a Google map view, artist CV/Statement and other menu options.

The Studio Visit website provides a booking system. Through this system potential buyers and collectors will request a studio visit only on the days, times, and for the duration that the artist or studio configures. The booking system will ask for basic contact information from the collector that will be seen only by the artist/ studio they request to visit.

Once a collector books a studio visit reservation the studio will receive an email. In the studio account menu option RESERVATION MANAGE the reservation booking can be approved or rejected. If approved the collector will receive an email and can only go ahead with the studio visit appointment with this confirmation email.

News of this service is provided to you by the Artist Marketing Resources blog For the past six years, Artist Marketing Resources has been providing information to artists. Some of our resources and services include: The International Art Gallery Directory  available hereArt Licensing companies agencies + artist agents & artist reps hereTransmedia Artist Guide to Making Artist Submissions ebook hereDirectory of Art Consultants here1,100+ Places to Sell Your Art E-list herePhotographers Resources of International Photography Reps and agents, galleries, print sales, publishers + more hereArt magazines, art blogs, art directories e-list of art publication resources for artists hereArt Print Resources for artists here , Featured Artists here, and our E-Postcard Marketing Service for Artists here.

Two Artist Resources that Defy Categorization: Works.io and Art360 Gallery

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.
