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.
