Artist Profile Submissions
I've got two already and I'd love to have more up here as I know TONS of artists from across the country. Sculptors, Painters, Photographers, etc...
If you happen to be one of these people and would like me to help promote your work and your websites, please follow these instructions.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with "ARTIST PROFILE" in the subject heading. Feel free to attach as many pictures of your work (along with titles) and a short bio (how long you've been creating, past shows or places where your work has been shown, shows that you have coming up in the future, etc.). The more information, the better. The aim is to promote your work as fully as possible to a wider audience.
IN THE EMAIL:
Attach pictures of your work and please answer these questions...
1.) Why are you an artist?
2.) What is your inspiration?
3.) Would you consider yourself a designer or artist or both?
4.) What is your philosophy of Art?
5.) What is the role of the artist in our society?
6.) Where do you see yourself as an artist in 5 years? What are your ultimate goals as an artist?
7.) What does art mean to you?
Again, the more in-depth the answer, the better. A response that's only a line or two doesn't give anyone any insight into who you are or what/why you do what you do. Feel free to get wordy.
Feel free to pass this along to anyone you may know that wants a little free exposure too.
Also, I know of no way to protect pictures, so if you've got watermarked versions you'd prefer using, that's TOTALLY perfect in case you're concerned with that.
Get at me. I know there's a ton of talent out there that's not getting enough exposure and I'd like to change that for as many people as possible.
