One last post for today and yes it’s another call for artists. Artsy Shark is looking for artists to be featured on their website. Below is a brief and detailed info about what you need to do….


Credit source: Artsy Shark

Visual artists in any medium are invited to apply to become an Artsy Shark featured artist.

Each individual portfolio article gives the artist an opportunity to tell their story in their own words, talk about their inspiration and technique, and present their work to our large audience. All features are promoted heavily through social media and email marketing.

Since 2010, over 1,000 artist features have been published on this site. All artist features are permanent and may be viewed here.

Artists who submit an application enter a competitive juried process which has a jury fee of $20. Not all artists will be offered a feature. Any artist who has previously been featured may not apply again. Selection is made through viewing the applicant’s art website or other online presence. All artists will be notified of the results of their application within three weeks of the application deadline.

A link to the featured artist’s own website appears prominently in each article. This gives artists the opportunity to make sales of their work, and capture email addresses of interested readers on their own site. Artsy Shark receives no fees or commissions whatsoever for any sales or contracts that result from being featured.

Hello folks! September is coming to a close, but this week will be pretty interesting. I’ve been keeping tabs for Artexpo Las Vegas which will be taking place January 27 – 31, 2018.
