Artsy Shark is searching for 48 new artists to feature and promote in the coming months. Artists are selected through a juried submission process, which is now open. Deadline is midnight Eastern time, May 26, 2016.
Interested in being a featured artist on ArtsyShark.com? Visual artists in any medium who would like to be considered may submit an application from May 18-26, 2016. This is a competitive juried submission process, and not all artists will be accepted.
Each artist who is featured has the opportunity to present their portfolio and share their story and inspiration in an individual article on Artsy Shark. Artist features are sent to thousands of email subscribers and viewed by many of the 35,000 unique visitors who come to this site each month.
When an artist is featured, their article includes a link directly to their art website, sending interested readers to learn more about them and view their art. This offers the chance for artists to gain email subscribers, increase their social media following, and make sales.
Many artists have sold art, gotten commissions and received contract offers as a result of this exposure. Each feature is permanent, which means that it continues to promote the artist, who can use the link as long as they like. The current Featured Artist Gallery contains over 800 artist features at this time.
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, not through uploading images.
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 are collected by Artsy Shark on resulting sales of artwork.
THE SUBMISSION PERIOD IS OVER FOR THIS CALL FOR ARTISTS.
