Artworld CEO, Keith McFarlane takes a personal interest in all those who support his Artworld crowd-funding campaign on Indiegogo (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/artworld–2). The perk he offers to his top supporters includes a meeting with McFarlane at the ArtWorld Headquarters in Amsterdam, a weeks accommodation, a party in your honor, and a planned program of events hosted by Artworld.

Another campaign perk categories puts you on the Artworld board of advisors.

McFarlane has launched the first ArtWorld print competition in conjunction with his IndieGoGo fundraising campaign. The print competition is open to fine art printmakers working in the traditional printmaking processes, including stone lithography, etching, aquatint, woodcut, linocut, serigraph, engraving, or any other intaglio or relief technique from which artisanal-quality original prints can be produced.

The print competition cash prize is €1,500  Euros  or approximately $2,079USD or £1,236 UK Pounds. The winning artist will design, print and distribute a limited edition of 50 original hand-made prints. The prints will be distributed to individual art-lovers and artists pledging €100 or more to Artworld’s 2014 crowd-funding campaign. ArtWorld pays the shipping fees and other expenses for the artist to send prints as perks to donors.

The complete competition details, rules, terms and conditions are set out in the Competition Prospectus.

The competition has an international panel of judges based in the UK, USA and the Netherlands.

Week in Review: Artist Opportunities, Art Collector and Tech Opportunities to Support new ArtWorld App

The Artist Marketing Resources blog shared the news of the ArtWorld app IndieGoGo campaign. Artists are always free to sign-up to use the ArtWorld app to connect with art collectors. Art Collectors and app developers may wish to join in supporting the ArtWorld on IndieGoGo.

The Artist Marketing Resources blog also provided artists with a resource for purchasing fine art acrylic paint direct from the manufacturers at Nova Color , for substantial savings over retail prices.

The following day, we posted an article on art sales sites and art licensing sites, and the day after that we provided artists with news of a magazine seeking art from artists for publication on the cover of their next issue.

At the end of the week, we shared news of a Call to Artists for an opportunity for a July Solo Gallery show at the Napoleon Gallery in Philadelphia.

Week in review: News and Ops for #Artists, April 1-7, 2014

 

This week on the Artist Marketing Resources blog, we shared news of the ArtWorld apps IndieGoGo crowd funding campaign and the first ArtWorld Print Competition with a cash prize! Read the details here.

Also this week, we let artists know about the First Street Gallery’s Call for Artist Submissions Extended Deadline–and there is still time to submit–here is the link to the prospectus.

 

Artists and artist assistants continue to contact us for e-copies of our International Art Gallery list PDF

Photographic Artists and their assistants like our new 2014 Photographers Resources to International Photography Reps and agents + much more-find it here.

 

We also received an email inquiry regarding our numbers of followers–

The Artist Marketing Resources blog has over 44,000 followers, our LinkedIN group also named Artist Marketing Resources has over 3,000 members.

We are at the maximum number of followers on Google+, and our Twitter accounts have 8,000-12,000 followers per account–@TransArtGuide  @Artozon @MarieKazalia @Transmediartist and other Twitter accounts that we manage.

An assistant to one artist wrote and asked “if you are so popular why do you have so few likes on your Facebook page?”

That’s a good question. The reason is that I started The Artist Marketing Resources Facebook page back in the days when Facebook made many FB formatting changes, destroying my layouts and work!  I became disenchanted with FB and did nothing for the page for a couple of years, instead concentrating on interactions on my blog and in my LinkedIN group. So now, I am working to re-active The Artist Marketing Resources Facebook page–Please follow and LIKE!

 

Support the ArtWorld App on IndieGoGo For Great Perks!

Artworld Crowd-Funding

Artworld is Crowd-Funding on Indiegogo and Offering Great Perks!

Dear Artist,

I am contacting you on behalf of Artworld, the online community for artists, art enthusiasts and buyers. I have your email-address as you have registered with us. A good proportion of you will have uploaded work (about half of all who registered). And many of you will know me personally through our correspondence.

As users and often supporters of Artworld, I ask you to help Artworld raise some €10,000 via crowd-funding (roughly $14,000 or £8,300). I invite you to take a close look at our proposal, and at the imaginative, perks we offer in return for your contribution. Here is our campaign-page. The campaign, on Indiegogo, will run for the next 45 days.

Artworld has been growing steadily since its launch. We have around 500 artists, some 5,000 app users, and a regular Facebook audience of around 1000 (there being some 8,000 likes). That’s an excellent result for a one-man pro-bonoinitiative with a tiny promotion and marketing budget. Artworld has spread almost exclusively through personal recommendation: by “word of mouth”.

The number of participants is now enough that additional development work is needed. To support this we have decided on crowd-funding. For a pro bono project such as Artworld, venture capital is not an option. Equally, my personal resources are not so large that I can raise the required investment from a bank. That leaves crowd-funding as the natural and indeed only practicable choice.

Spread the Word!

Other than, or in addition to, a cash contribution, you can support Artworld by sharing our Campaign Page on Facebook, or by copying this email to your own supporters, family and friends. And why not post it on your web-site or blog, or other social media, perhaps even tweet it? Help our campaign go viral! With full funding I can do even more to help Artworld’s artists and the community they represent.

Yours sincerely. Keith McFarlane Artworld Negative Entropy BV Amsterdam The Netherlands
