Are you sharing the fruit of your artistic efforts with us online? With Facebook, blogs, digitized museum collections and gallery previews, the entire global art world is in your studio. Every single one of us has a shiny, gold All Access Pass. Before social media and blogging, I had no idea there is so much talent out there, right now. Living Artists, doing amazing work, today.
I meet or discover 10 or 15 artists posting their work on Facebook alone every week. As testimonials spread about the benefits of Social Media as a Community, and a Marketing tool, more and more artists are jumping on the train. Do you have a blog? Are you linked to instagram, Facebook and Pinterest with your blog? Do you have a youtube channel? Are you sharing the work you make?
The internet has empowered artists to show their work to the world with a computer, and I believe the creative population will continue to conjure new ways to use virtual proximity & social networking to expand artistic authority in new and innovative ways. (Watch this video.) As an artist, I’m thoroughly enjoying the camaraderie and access to so many painters and printmakers I admire and respect, as well as direct sales to my clients, and collaborative online marketing strategies. Are you getting up from your table in the corner to join the dance train shimmying through the room?
