Art Shows, Awards and Magazines

by Mark Edward Adams on 8/17/2015 8:14:35 AM

Every time something new happened I would seek out ways to promote it. It would start a chain reaction and lead to something new. After several years of repeating the process you end up with a solid track record of accomplishments. The worst thing you can do after winning an award or receiving recognition is to lean back and watch. Now is the time to take action and make it work for your art career. [...]

by Carolyn Hancock on 4/12/2013 7:12:46 AM

And it's what an artist must do to succeed. Put out little tendrils of hope - blog, enter a competition, update your website, give a workshop, join a great art group, give lessons, design a new business card, try a new technique, send out a press release, write an article, and: keep a running list of all these "ingredients."

by Brian Sherwin on 11/24/2012 8:04:42 AM

I have worked with dozens of online art competition jurors over the last seven years -- I'm speaking from experience when I say that some jurors can be sticklers concerning the lack of supporting details. [...]

by Brian Sherwin on 11/9/2012 10:43:27 PM

by Brian Sherwin on 10/19/2012 8:35:12 PM

This is one reason why art competition jurors, in general, don't provide written statements about their decisions. There is always the chance that specific details will infuriate an artist ? he or she won't be happy no matter what direction the feedback goes. [...]

Three Reasons Why Art Competition Jurors Don't Provide Artists With Feedback: Part 2 - Money

by Brian Sherwin on 10/11/2012 12:38:47 PM

Needless to say, the above scenario is simply not an option for most art competition organizers... unless entry fees are raised. A $14 entry fee would end up being a $64+ entry fee to make up for the added expense of paying jurors for submission feedback. [...]

Do Art Organizations Matter Anymore?

by Mark Edward Adams on 9/21/2012 7:20:10 AM

I think the prestige of the art societies was a casualty of the new culture of personal branding. In the past, there were a limited number of these groups and they had a lot of power. It meant immediate exposure and sales if your art won an award. However, with the emergence of social media it became very easy to start your own group or just ignore the art societies and promote yourself. Suddenly there were a lot more voices in the room and it became very difficult to distingush one from the other. [...]
