Call for Featured Artists, Winter 2016

Artsy Shark is seeking 48 artists to feature and promote in the coming months. Our current Call for Artists is now open, and accepting submissions from November 10-18, 2016.


Featured Artists on Artsy Shark


Are you interested in becoming a featured artist on We invite visual artists in any medium who would like to be considered to submit an application during our Call for Artists, from November 10-18, 2016. This is a very competitive juried submission process. Not all artists will be accepted. Deadline is midnight on Friday, November 18th.

Featured artists gain exposure and publicity through individual articles on Artsy Shark, which presents their portfolio and shares their story.  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.

Each artist feature contains a link to their art website, directing traffic to learn more about them and view their portfolio. This offers an opportunity for artists to gather email subscribers, build their social media following, connect with potential collectors and business contacts, and make sales of their art.

Many artists have sold art, gained commissions and received contract offers as a result of this exposure. Each feature is permanent, which means that the artist may use the link as long as they like for publicity purposes. The current Featured Artist Gallery currently has more than 850 artist features, which are all permanent and always shareable.

There is a $20 jury fee to apply to be featured. Submissions will be juried by viewing the artist’s website and online presence. No images will be uploaded during the application process.

Artists will be notified of results as soon as possible, whether or not they have been accepted. Notification may take several weeks.

Artsy Shark does not collect any commissions or fees on sales or contracts that result from artist features.


This Call for Artists is no longer open.
