about art for artists
My Art Exhibition Checklist - for Artists entering juried and open art exhibitions are now published in an enhanced format - as a NEW PAGE - on my Art Business Info. for Artists website.
You can find it in the SELL ART section.
If you're new to submitting artwork to juried exhibitions you tend to find out all the things you "need to know" the hard way - through error and omission!
Friends will provide their own tips - but very few have ever written down their own checklists.
Many years ago I started to enter my artworks for juried art exhibitions.
Back in February 2013 I decided to write down my own art exhibition checklist and publish it as a blog post - mainly because every time I did a submission I used to forget one vital step! Guess what? I'd had yet another incident of forgetting to do something crucial!
The things I have forgotten to do have included:
There will be another checklist - for art exhibition organisers - coming along in the near future.
UPDATE: Alternative Options for Exhibitions
Artists have been using Pop Up Spaces for some years to hold exhibitions of their art and/or run art galleries in unused commercial spaces that are available for short periods.
However what you need to do and how you get a pop up space is still a mystery to many artists.
I've expanded the Alternative Options for Exhibitions page devoted to different places to exhibit to include a NEW section on The Pop Up Show / Art Gallery
This summarises why artists use them and what you need to know and get to develop a pop up space for art.
It also includes links to useful online resources in terms of guides and articles and further advice. These links include:
If you've written a blog post about your experience of running a popup art show do drop me line via comments and I'll feature it in the reference section for this topic. It's good to share!
