Two Artist Resources that Defy Categorization: Works.io and Art360 Gallery

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.

EXHIBITION-ISM, Art licks, a.m. and Felt Acts

What first may read as a  list of sexually suggestive activities–EXHIBITION-ISM, Art Licks, a.m. and Felt Acts–are simply a few art magazine titles selected from our extensive e-list of art magazines and art blogs.

Fewer than 50 artists are making use of the approximately 1,500 listings on our e-list of Art Magazines and art blogs.

blogArtmagazinesfreedigitalphotosnet

And some fantastic stuff on this e-list too! So much so that it’s hard to categorize all the opportunities since there is much overlap and each magazine listed holds a wealth of opportunities on their websites and within their publications.

For instance, here are a few of our e-list listings explored further–

The Contemporary art magazine EXHIBITION-ISM  invites you to submit your high quality art photos for feature on their tumblr blog (Photos must be 1024×768 or larger).

Art Licks is a print magazine that also has a website where they share opportunities, such as the a.m.  Open Call for Artists.  a.m. is a non-commercial space, looking to schedule programming for the first half of next year, to host artists who work with dematerialized processes, for example: artists working with performance, video, or through writing. a.m. is seeking proposals which emerge from conceptual art traditions; there is an appreciation for minimalism, and a preference for subtlety rather than highly stylized artistic practices.

a.m. is flexible with the forms that the artist proposals take, and there are no obligations on the outcome of the artists time. a.m. open to the many forms in which work may be presented, both formally or informally. It is an opportunity to realize ideas that might require more time, investment or dialogue with other artists.

FeltActs is an online platform for performance which features performance and exhibition reviews, critical writing, performance writing, and artist interviews.  FeltActs offers an online space through which to explore different disciplinary and critical approaches to performance: from within performance studies, literary studies, the visual arts, art history and curatorial practices. FeltActs aims to take an expanded approach to the understanding of ‘performance’.

FeltActs is currently looking for submissions for its upcoming issue ‘Felt Acts: Approaching Documentation’. Whether you are an artist, writer, critic, performer, practitioner or curator. Please don’t hesitate to submit a proposal for a review, essay or interview which is not in-line with the current theme, but which you feel could contribute to the aims and themes that FeltActs is currently exploring.

Remember, these are just a few found amid nearly 1,500 listings on our e-list of Art Magazines and art blogs. Think of all you are missing out on if your don’t have this e-list! Get it now here.

Salon-Style Wall-Hang VS Salon-Style Contemporary Art Gallery

Apartment Therapy salon style room

According to an article on the Urban Domesticity blog, “hanging artwork salon-style entails arranging a whole bunch of pictures and paintings together in a collage-like formation on the wall.”

This “old-fashioned” method of hanging art dates back to The Paris Salon (French: Salon de Paris), the official art exhibition of the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Paris, France. Between 1748 and 1890 The Paris Salon was the greatest annual or biannual art event in the Western world according to Wikipedia.

While this salon-style of hanging art has made a comeback with Interior Designers, which is good news for artists who will be able to offer even more artworks to residential clients to fill salon-hung walls, the term “salon style” may refer to location and relaxed atmosphere when it comes to contemporary art galleries.

Susan Eley Fine Art was founded as a salon-style gallery in an Upper West Side Townhouse in Manhattan, New York, to offer an intimate, personal viewing experience not typically found in white box galleries. Eley opened her Gallery to tap into an untapped audience and to show them an alternative way to enjoy art. She focuses on contemporary art by emerging and mid-career artists working in both figurative and abstract styles in a variety of media and presents their work in solo and group exhibitions showcasing artists from the U.S., Asia, Latin America and Europe.

Artist Marketing Resources has been researching art galleries for many years, and offers artists a chance to share at that research by purchasing the International Art Gallery Directory here.
