We invite visual artists who would like to be considered to submit an application during our Call for Artists, which runs from July 19-27, 2017. This is a competitive juried submission process, and not all artists who apply will be accepted. The application deadline is midnight on Thursday, July 27th, 2017.

Submissions are now being accepted from artists in a variety of categories and mediums, including painting, drawing, mixed media, collage, sculpture, jewelry, photography, digital art, printmaking, ceramics, wood, fiber, glass, metal and others.

Selected artists have an individual feature article published that presents their portfolio, and shares their story, for the purpose of gaining exposure and publicity. Each artist feature is emailed to thousands of subscribers, and may be viewed by many of the 35,000 unique visitors who visit Artsy Shark each month. Featured artists are promoted extensively on social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Twitter and Google+.

Each artist feature contains a link to the artist’s website, sending visitors to learn more about them and view their portfolio. This offers each featured artist an opportunity to gain email subscribers, build their social media following, connect with potential collectors and business contacts, and even make sales of their art. Artsy Shark does not take any commissions or fees on sales or contracts that result from artist features.

Each feature that is published is permanent, and the artist may use the link as long as they like. The collection of featured artists on this site contains more than 950 artist features at this time. Each one is always accessible and shareable.

A $20 jury fee applies on all featured artist submissions. Jurying is done by viewing the artist’s website and online presence. No images need to 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.
