Call for Featured Artists, Fall 2015

by Carolyn Edlund

Artsy Shark is searching for 48 artists to feature and promote in the coming months. Submissions are now being accepted. Deadline is midnight, September 4, 2015.


Artist Collage 1 August 2015


Visual artists in any medium who would like to be considered as a featured artist on Artsy Shark may submit an application from August 26 – September 4, 2015. This is a competitive juried submission process, and not all artists will be accepted.

Artists who are selected have individual articles published about them on Artsy Shark, where they present their portfolio and share their story in their own words. Each feature includes a link directly to the artist’s own website. This gives the artist an opportunity to share more of their work, gain subscribers and social media followers, and make art sales.

Each featured artist article is emailed to thousands of subscribers, promoted extensively on social media, and seen by many of over 35,000 unique readers who visit each month. It then becomes a permanent part of the Featured Artist Gallery, which now contains more than 700 artist features.

Artist features are permanent. The artist can use the link to their featured article for as long as they like, and may consider it an extension of their marketing efforts.

There is a jury fee of $20.00 for each artist submission. Applicants will be juried by viewing the artist’s website and online presence.

Within a few weeks after the deadline, all artists will be notified as to whether or not they have been accepted. No fees or commissions of any type are collected by Artsy Shark on resulting sales of artwork.
