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.
Our International Art Gallery Directory and other artist resources are now available in our new Selz store, with more payment options.

I first used Instagram at the new Museum of Contemporary Art in Cleveland a couple of years ago, where I snapped photos of the art on the walls using my iPad camera and sent them off to my Instagram account using the museum’s WiFi (I had to ask for their password). I thought I’d taken the time to type in the name of each artist in each photo description. Reviewing those images now (here) on my Instagram profile, I notice blurry shots not edited out and abbreviated artist names. My picture-taking activity bundled up in my excitement of walking the galleries and viewing the art. It never occurred to me to take the time to add image tags to any of those photos. Likewise, at the Carnegie International in Pittsburgh, where the huge galleries held much more and much larger artworks, I snapped and sent my photos to Instagram without tagging them.
Today, viewing Instagram images posted by others, I’ve notice their use of image tags, such as the place tags #ArtBasel #ScopeArtFair used by those in Miami and #Brighton #thingstodoinBrighton and #openstudios used by artist Caia Matheson in the UK.
Instagram allows up to 30 tags per image. Amid the many image tags used to describe the art medium or technique, artists also tag to get the attention of buyers, with: #affordableart #artbuyers #artcollectors #buyart #artforsale #paintingforsale #printforsale #onlineshop #interiordesign #giftideas #handpainted #Christmasgiftideas #sellart #artsales
Taking more interest in Instagram and tagging, I noticed an article by Brandon Gaille, on 6 Keys to Getting more Instagram Likes, and learned that Facebook owns Instagram. According to Gaille, “Instagram is the hottest site right now. It was experiencing phenomenal growth when Facebook acquired the site and even thereafter the growth spree seems to be unhindered.”
I also want to share Dan Zarella of HubSpot’s huge infographic on how using more tags on your Instagram photos gets you more likes:
The Big Ink website and blog has a current call to artists to take part in a collaborative large woodcut project. Monumental prints inspire artists and the public alike to think big, set long-term goals, and have the perseverance to see complex projects to fruition.
Each year artists from all backgrounds including sculpture, photography, painting, and print participate. Artists are invited to submit a proposal to create a woodcut at least 24 x 36 inches in dimension via an open call for entry. If accepted, artists are given two months to carve their image into a piece of plywood. At the end of the two months, all the artists meet for a printing session at a local print studio and help one another print their woodcuts onto paper. Typically between 30 to 36 hand pulled prints are produced during two days of printing sessions. Each artist donates one print to the BIG INK portfolio.
The Printeresting site welcomes submissions for Printeresting content: artwork, news, exhibitions, book releases, reviews, or random moments of print. They also accept submissions from guest contributors. If you’d like submit an article for possible inclusion on Printeresting, please register on the site and a password will be emailed to you. Then log in, draft a post, and submit it to Printeresting editorial review
Printeresting, as a rule, does not publish announcements for kick starters or other fundraisers, calls for entry, holiday sales, and other opportunities. But feel free to use their classifieds page to share these types of items.
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.
