Eyedrum Art Gallery is currently seeking a wide range of examples of “Glitch Art” to display in an upcoming exhibition to be called, Behind the Static, which will take a deeper look at the origins and future of Glitch within the context of art making, in which artists are manipulating materials to create and/or exploit glitches, capturing and documenting accidents and bugs in the system, or ghosts in the machine.
Consideration will be given to physical objects such as imperfect 3D printed objects, digital prints, drawings, paintings, sculpture, photo, text, textiles, installation, sound, and interactive pieces based on the concept of glitch. Digital-only works will also be accepted and will be displayed using projectors, monitors, etc.
In addition to visual art, Eyedrum is seeking proposals for demos, workshops, discussions, and performances that reference glitch.
To submit, please send up t o 5 numbered images and/or links, title list with medium numbered to correspond with images, artist website (if available), and current CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by Midnight EST Aug 1, 2015.
Artists will be responsible for any shipping/transportation costs for all non-digital accepted submissions but special consideration will be given where possible.
Behind the Static opens October 24, 2015 at Eyedrum Art and Music Gallery, 88 Forsyth St SE, Atlanta, GA 30303 and will run through the end of 2015. Eyedrum.org
Facebook– that ever-changing social media platform– has announced that it’s ready to make more overall changes, admitting that this scheduled new formatting could negatively affect your Page’s reach.
So, if you created your artist page, or small business page on Facebook, and have even paid for Facebook ads that brought “Likes” to your page, will all that fade into the background along with your page? Has developing your Facebook page been worthwhile for your business? Or is it time to shift your focus to new ways of getting visibility?
For some time, I’ve advised artists that Facebook ads bring “Likes” not sales. When you pay for any ad it will drive some traffic. But as soon as you stop paying for those ads, they disappears and are forgotten.
Feature articles on Artist Marketing Resources are better than paid ads because our feature articles become a permanent part of Google search engine and other search engine results. Artist Marketing Resources and our friends and associates work to bring you visibility.
Since we launched on Feb 3, 2009, Artist Marketing Resources has published articles featuring artists and art events. We’ve had people find and continue to comment on our articles that we published years ago!
Why do a feature blog article with us? Feature artist articles are multipurpose. Our published articles contain multiple large images of your art and multiple links–such as to your website, Facebook page, Twitter account, and blog. (Ads–such as on Facebook– tend to have one link and one tiny image, one purpose and one result). Our feature articles are much more versatile, and may be crafted to feature an event, such as exhibition of your art, or may offer new available work such a new print edition for purchase on your site. Or the article may share and illustrate your amazing art-making techniques or simply ask for followers for your blog or Twitter account and others.
Additional Value: After we publish your article, we tweet the article link with attached image across Twitter via our @TransArtGuide @Artozon @Transmediartist and others we admin. We include appropriate hashtags, such as: #painting #portrait #exhibition#drawing #fineartphotography and many others. We also use any appropriate Twitter trending hashtags to place your art in front of a new audience. For instance, yesterday we used the newly trending hashtag #handmadehour on our tweets for portrait commissions and portrait drawings.
We also share your feature artist articles on multiple Facebook pages that we admin. We share all our articles on Google+ and in Google art groups, and post article links to Tumblr blogs and add multiple images, with article link on each, to Pinterest. We post your feature articles as a new discussions in our Artist Marketing Resources LinkedIn Group and in appropriate art collector groups.
We offer many options to suit your needs–

Part of the research we do for our Artist Marketing Resources articles includes trying out various sales platforms for ourselves. Generally we are interested in online galleries, artist print sales sites, art licensing platforms, art magazines and art apps.
We’ve known about Fiverr for a few years now, and after hearing of creative people making as much as $47,000 per year on the Fiverr site from sales of their creative services, we decided to give it a try for ourselves. So we’re taking it for a test drive–perhaps rather skeptically at first!
