Artsy Shark needs 36 new artists to feature and promote in the coming months. Interested in being featured? Deadline is midnight, December 19, 2014.
Visual artists in any medium who would like to submit their work for consideration to become a featured artist on Artsy Shark may apply now through December 19, 2014. This is a juried submission process, which means that not all artists will be accepted.
Each featured artist is presented in an individual article on Artsy Shark, sharing their story in their own words and presenting their portfolio. The article also includes a prominent link to the artist’s own website.
Featured artist articles are emailed to thousands of subscribers, promoted extensively on social media, and seen by many of over 37,000 unique readers who visit the Artsy Shark website each month. It then becomes a permanent part of the Featured Artist Gallery, which contains over 500 artist features at this time.
Becoming a featured artist is an excellent opportunity to present your art and attract lots of traffic to your own website, where you can gain subscribers, social media followers, grow your network and make sales. Consider it an extension of your marketing efforts, and continue to promote your featured page for as long as you like.
There is a jury fee of $20.00 for each submission. Applicants will be juried by viewing their websites and online presence, not through uploading images. Artists who submit their work will be notified whether they have been accepted or not in the beginning of January, 2015.
No fees or commissions are ever collected by Artsy Shark on any contracts or sales of artwork that are made as a result of an artist being featured.

I’m always on the lookout for opportunities to connect with a global market over the internet. Artsy Shark is just that; provides access and exposure for artists to a global community. Carolyn Edlund is probably the best part of the whole experience… She edits your copy and does a really thoughtful and beautiful layout of text and images that shows off the artist to best advantage. She is generous with her time and advice and very knowledgeable regarding all aspects of art and marketing. Carolyn really seems to care about artists and I read and follow her advice with confidence. She’s on our side. ~ Cynda Valle
