Canadian Arts Jobs – 08/20/12

Hello!

Simon!

I had a very exciting few days last week that included meeting someone special, an interview, endless preparations, calls & texts & emails, and finally on Friday, I brought home my new dog!

Simon (full name: Simon Cool Ziggy Hayward Ossandon as named by my two little ones) is a two year old black retriever that came to us from our amazing local humane society.

We’re thrilled!

We have a cat, Tut, but after our other cat, Baya, passed away earlier this year, we were really looking forward to welcoming a new pet into our home.

So today my question is about pets and other animals (whether friend or foe).

Do animals inspire your art?

I’d love to hear your answers below (and perhaps even hear about your pets and animal-themed work) after you check out the great list of jobs I have for you today.

Have a wonderful day!

I have a great list of jobs for you below. Be sure to check them out and let us know in the comments if anything piques your interest.

Have a wonderful day!

stranger - Joshua Vegas

“Stranger” by CAC Member Joshua Vegas (@joshuavegas)
[Want to see your art here? Click here for more info.]

Hello!

I’ve decided to do something a little different with the list today. We like to take our members suggestions into consideration (we’ve had plenty of ideas discussed about the best way to arrange the lists) and it’s always nice to switch things up every once in a while just to have something new & fresh, so I’ve split the jobs up into each province.

Do you prefer it this way? The old way? Be sure to let me know in the comments below!

I’ve also tracked down a few more websites to collect jobs from (which is awesome!), but we’re always looking for more to offer you as many opportunities as possible, so if you know of any others, please let us know in the comments section below.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

We’re going to be switching things up a bit this week with Ryan (our Business Manager) starting to help me with some of the job lists. As CAC continues to grow, my workload is increasing. Ryan, at the same time, is busy taking full-time courses. We’re hoping between the two of us we’ll be able to handle the lists each and every weekday.

This week, I’ll still be doing the lists until Thursday, then Ryan will handle Friday’s. After that, Ryan will take care of Monday and Friday’s job lists as well as Monday’s calls for submissions & auditions list. I’ll be handling Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

So be sure to give Ryan a “Hello!” on Friday’s list!

And, of course, I have a great list of jobs for you below to start off your week.

Have a wonderful day!

Tear of the Ice Queen - Jason Nelson

“Tear of the Ice Queen” by Jason Nelson (@stonesculptor
[Want to see your art here? Click here for more info.]

Hello!

Have you submitted your art to our Flickr group but it still hasn’t been chosen as one of our featured pieces? Here are some reasons of why that might be…

1. Pieces must fit the slideshow on the front page.

  • If the pic of your art is small, it won’t fit the necessary space requirements. The original pics must be considerably larger than the ones seen at the top of the posts (bigger is better).
  • Pics that are more horizontal fit the space better as opposed to vertical pieces (if your pic is large enough, vertical pieces can still be used).

2. Artists must be identifiable.

  • If your Flickr user name is different from your CAC name, then I’m not able to properly credit the work and therefore can’t use it. If this is an issue, simply send us a message over Flickr letting us know your CAC user name.

If you haven’t submitted your art yet, be sure to check out and join our group so that we can showcase your work to the thousands of people that drop by our site every day. http://www.flickr.com/groups/canadaartsconnect/

Then, of course, take a look at today’s job list below!

Have a wonderful day!
