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!
