Stained Glass Window - ba1969

Hello!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I managed to spend time with family, go on a mini road-trip, and get LOTS of CAC work done.

Did you head to a cottage or take a trip? Spend some time with family? Perhaps attend an event? Maybe work on some of your art or projects?

My question today is…

How did you spend the long weekend? Did you do anything artistic or creative?

I’d love to hear what you were up to in the comments below (or share over Twitter & Facebook) and be sure to take a look at the long list of job opportunities below.

Remember to also check out today’s list of calls for submissions & auditions which will be up right after this post.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

I asked two question over the last couple of days (here & here) and got a great response.

Check them out:

.

What is the role of art? Is it different than the role of the artist?

“The role of art is to exist. Challenge, question, support, beautify, testify, et cetera. Not even the artist can guarantee what it will be. Too many factors… Time, culture, politics, history; it’s all organic.” - Mat Calverley

“The role of art is to inspire, explore and illuminate the truth.” - Brittney Francis

“provoke fun, thought & interest. Without art, life would be dull.The role of the artist is to create & share with the world.” - Nav Sehambhi

“The role of art is to uplift people’s spirits. The role of the artist is to attain artistic perfection.” - LorraineHétuManifold

“‘protect the origins of language and culture’” - karhiio

.

What is the role of the artist?

“create a pathway to experience.” - dsharpdavis

“”The Role of the artist is to make their own stylized comment on the state of humanity”" - Natalia Knowlton

“the role of the artist is to suspend time, even if just for a moment.” - Jacqueline Woods

“the role of the artist is to evoke, invoke and provoke” - Bartlett Gallery

“the artist is there to express themselves through their art and allow others to relate” - Staverous Cardini

“…poke into the edges we haven’t gone into or dare not go into.” - Maggie Shirley

“The role of the artist is to fill in the blank.” - Peggy MacKinnon

“connect” - Appy Aparnski

(We had many, many more answers, so I couldn’t include them all in this post).

Do you agree/disagree with any of the above? Have thoughts of your own on the subject? Be sure to let us know in the comments below after you’ve taken a look at the awesome list of job opportunities I have for you today.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

Yesterday I asked what you thought the role of an artist is. Today I’m wondering what you think the role of art is. Does art itself have a different intent/responsibility than the artist creating the work?

Fill in the blank:

“The role of art is to _____________.” Is it different than the role of the artist?

I’d love to hear your ideas in the comments below after you check out the great list of job opportunities I have for you.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Are you inspired to start another week? Does your working environment help with that?

I love to see where people work and where they create their art. I’m currently without an official office or studio and it’s driving me nuts! What about you?

Where do you create your art?

What does your studio / office look like?

We’d love if you’d show us a pic of your space in our Studios & Work Spaces album. And be sure to tell us a bit about it!

And, of course, we have a great list of jobs for you to start the week off with.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

Creating your art is often only the first step in the process of getting it out to the public. Websites and services exist to help in that regard, and we’re interested in what you think of them.

Have you ever sold your designs on products/merch through Cafepress or Zazzle?

What are your thoughts on either or both sites?

We’d love to hear about your experiences in the comments below!

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

Our new columns have been creating a lot of buzz and yesterday another one launched.

With The Art of PR: Part 1 ”…you can expect stories focusing on both the after-hours aspects of being an artist–what fashion trends are in, for example–to practical career advice that deals with the more “fluffy” side of the artist lifestyle: building your brand, interview and working wardrobes, etc.

This week’s entry will focus on public relations in the art industry and tips specifically for artists on managing their public relations.”

Including an interview with Rebecca Webster of Webster Media Consulting.

Check it out by clicking here. And of course, we have a great list of jobs for you below.

Have a wonderful day!
