Our New Visual Artist Promotions Scholarship Fund Campaign

Screen Shot 2014-11-21 at 1.18.17 PM

Artist Promotions Scholarship Fund–let’s give artists what they need–time, funding, visibility–

Normally, we spring fully developed programs on our readers. But with this one, we are letting you in on the project and getting feedback as the project develops.

There is no shortage of artists around the world who would love to receive funding for exhibitions. There are many exhibition spaces who want to work with us, as well, so that we can assist artists to successfully show in their programs. The need is clear and present and made apparent to us daily.

There is much to be done. Guidelines and procedures need to be discusses, drafted and put into place within our project plan.

The first action phase of this new scholarship program is fundraising. We need donors, supporters and backers to create the scholarship fund. To  support our scholarship campaign click here.

Help us get the ball rolling!

We’re using the Megafounder platform that takes 0% of funds raised and allows for an ongoing campaign with no all-or-nothing goal amount to set and reach, and no ending deadline date. We expect such lack of restrictions to allow our project to evolve, change and mature. Your web and mobile donations to our scholarship fund are processed via Stripe, which accepts payments from users globally in 139 currencies.

Artists around the world need support. Our new scholarship has no geographic restrictions. We understand, that in the Bahamas, where one Bahamian dollar equals one US dollar, there may be less need. But in Argentina, where it takes $8.52 Argentine Pesos to equal one US dollar– ( The currency symbol for the Argentine Peso is the dollar sign the same as it is for the US dollar)–the un-equal currency exchange rate my cause hardships. If an artist in Argentina wishes to participate in an online US-based exhibition opportunity that requires a submission fee of say $35.00 US dollars, the artist will have to pay $298.20 Pesos to participate.  In the Czech republic it takes $22.34 CZK or Kruna to equal one US dollar. So that $35.00 fee comes to $781.90 CZK. Both relatively large amounts of money in those countries. Perhaps you’ve never consider this before, but now you get the idea of how even paying a relatively small amount in US dollars can be a huge limiting factor to artists outside the US wishing to gain more international visibility.

The goal of our scholarship fund is to remove limiting fee obstacles for artists. With this new scholarship fund we will use monies raised to pay the exhibition fee for a select number of international artists, as well assist artists with promotional and other expenses.

Artist Marketing Resources will be administrating this new scholarship fund for visual artists, working in conjunction with ArtWorld and Exhibitions Without Walls.  We will offer a portion of our scholarship fund to cover the submission fees for a limited number of photographers and digital artists wishing to submit their art for online exhibitions with Exhibitions Without Walls. The scholarship fund also seeks to assist artists working in all media to exhibit in a physical gallery space in Amsterdam, New York City, and other locations via the ArtWorld exhibition projects. There are no fees to exhibit with the ArtWorld exhibition program.

We understand that some artists may be unable to participate due to the expenses to ship their artwork to gallery spaces and to travel to attend the exhibition to meet with gallerists and collectors. The goal of the scholarship fund is to provide needed assistance to artists.

As we said, the first phase of this new scholarship program is to raise funds. Help support artists here.

Once a balance of funds is available we will begin administering payments for artists as these funds allow. Follow this blog for updates and calls to artists for future funding opportunities.

Artist Promotions Scholarship Fund.
