Whether it's selling at a market, participating in our CAPRAC Gallery, or offering workshops, it's a difficult question to answer. Whether you are an individual or an organization, a visual artist or an author, a musician or an artisan, the answer will be different.
Have you ever dreamed of organizing an exhibition with your art works? Would you like to join forces with your colleagues and create a collective exhibition according to your exact vision? You don't have to wait for exhibition venues to reopen to make it happen! Since in-person exhibitions currently present a number of obstacles, organizing a virtual exhibition can be a creative exercise with many advantages.
In our previous blogs, we presented the importance of some free online tools such as social media platforms. With the help of artist, and vice-president of the Prescott-Russell Arts Council, Tina Petrovicz, this blog will focus on how artists can use some of the free tools available through a Google account.
A look back to our virtual conversation: [SELF] Representation, Promotion and Evaluation - Part 2 with guests, artist Nathalie Frenière, Geneviève Duval (TPRT) and Karine Noyes (CAPRAC Gallery). As part of the round-table discussion, they generously offered advice on how best to use social media as an artist wishing to promote their artwork and their work. Here are some of the highlights we got from the discussion!
For artists who wish to submit their artwork for exhibitions, or project proposals for funding, the artist biography, and the artist statement are two key pieces of information to have at hand. Once you've written the biography and statement, they can be used for self-promotion, artist calls, exhibitions, programs, etc.
Whether you have submitted an application, added content to your website or social media pages, or done some form of online self-promotion, you understand the importance of having good quality photos of your work on hand. While there are professional options, learning how to do it at home or in a studio can save time and money while producing extremely accurate results.
