HELLO! FREE ADVERTISING FOR LOCAL ARTISTS!!!...
Check it out. okcArtists is here to help you spread the word about your art, to help you BE SEEN!
At an ONEAL (Oklahoma's New and Emerging Arts Leaders) event back in January, we all had to come up with a list of our top challenges of being a successful artist. It was very insightful that we all had the same top few listed. The big one that caught my eye was the difficulty in trying to get their art seen and their names out. I was struggling with the same issues and I am still working on it. That's what led me to create okcArtists. I wanted a search engine friendly site that would get people to me. Then I thought that maybe we could all use this.
Did you know?...
The more times you have your site linked to another, the more "relevant" your site is to web crawlers and the more likely you will be found. That's why okcArtists is on facebook and townsphere. This gets more people okcArtists and ultimately to you. okcArtists artists are already getting increased traffic to their sites by listing on here.
Alright, so we had a "like page" on facebook but I decided I needed more control to help get the word out about okcArtists so I generated a new actual page. Makes sense right? Anyway, check out our new home at www.facebook.com/okcArtists. Here you'll find lots of chatter about the local art scene. Come join us to really see whats going on.

I just returned from Taos, NM looking for gallery representation. Although the feedback was mostly positive, I did not end up in one. While talking to one gallery owner, he said to me, " You know how to get your work seen when looking for a gallery? You just take your portfolio in, put it on their desk, and say "I'd like for you to take a look at my portfolio. I am looking for gallery representation" " That's it. He said not to do phone calls or emails and that sometimes galleries have those listed just to weed out the non- professionals. To me this seemed rather rude and demanding. But it made me think that maybe that is what it takes. Maybe not at all places though. I personally like to at least do some home work on the galleries online before I go out. I don't want to drop my photography portfolio down on the desk of a gallery owner that only does painting and sculptures. That would be a waste of time for both of us. So.. for all that are reading this, what technique have you used successfully to get your work into a gallery. I am of course talking real gallery, not a coffee shop that says, "Sure you can hang your work in here if you like. We need something new on the walls anyway."
VERY interesting article about creativity in the U.S.
What's going on here? IQ's going up and CQ's going down. Are we becoming the robot sheep society that the gov't and schooling system has been striving for? A bunch of perfect little employees plugged into the system. Food for thought here.
