ELLO artists call themselves Artists helping Artists–and they do! If you are an artist looking for opportunities to collaborate on various projects to gain exposure, then check-out what they have to offer.
You can follow ELLO on Instagram here and submit your art to one of their latest projects such as MAKE GOOD
an opportunity to get your art published in a super high-quality limited edition coffee table magazine sold to help raise natural disaster relief funds, or, submit to the DAYLIGHTED digital exhibition project to exhibit your work in hotels, such as the Phoenix Hotel in San Francisco.
( Daylighted’s unique business model takes 0% commission on art sales. The selected artist will have the opportunity to sell their work and receive 100% of the sale.)
I’ve been telling artists for years to submit their work! So I felt validated by a great master when I read this quote–
“Think up ideas for stories, go out and shoot them, and then send them in to the magazines. I was lucky; I figured that out when I was young.” Stanley Kubrick
This great, important and successful filmmaker started out as a photographer and unknown. He got his start by submitting his work and getting it into magazine.
This applies to all artists working in all materials and styles — you should be submitting your work to appropriate art magazines, art consultants, art galleries, interior designers, and art licensing companies.
I wrote and published an e-book guide to help artists make submissions (available here) and e-lists of resources to help artists quickly and easily find the best places submit their work. I continue to compile my extensive and growing e-list of art and design magazines where you can submit your work for a feature (available here), and an e-list of links to over 5,000 USA and international art galleries (here), an e-list of art consultants (here) and art licensing companies (here). Plus specialized e-lists of print sales sites (here) and photography agents and resources (here).
