Visual artists are invited to apply to be featured on Artsy Shark. Artists are selected through a competitive juried process which involves a jury fee. We accept and encourage submissions from artists who work in a variety of mediums including: painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, digital art, clay, fiber, glass, jewelry, wood, printmaking and others.

Every feature published on this site presents the portfolio of a single artist, who tells the story of their concept, background, inspiration and technique. A prominent link is placed in the article to drive traffic to the artist’s own website. Other links invite readers to follow them on social media profiles.

This gives featured artists an opportunity to sell work, increase their following, and capture email addresses of interested readers for follow up purposes. Artsy Shark never takes fees or commissions on any sales or contracts that result from artist features.

We promote every artist to our large social media audience and also through email marketing. Since 2010, more than 1,600 artists have been featured on Artsy Shark. All artist features remain permanently on our site (view them here.) After publication, each artist receives a magazine-style version of that article in PDF form for use as marketing collateral.

Applications are subject to a fee of $25. Please note this Call for Artists is highly competitive and not all artists will be accepted. Any artist who has previously been featured individually on Artsy Shark may not apply again. Selection is made through viewing the applicant’s art website or other online presence listed in the submission form. All artists will be notified of the results of their submission within three weeks after the deadline.

This Call for Artists has closed.
