WHAT IS AN ARTIST SPOTLIGHT?
An artist Spotlight is a month long promotion for a single artist in the form of a web article with images. This includes formatting of an article and images, exposure via web and social media, and direct links to your website, portfolio and art store. We will be providing you with the initial Application Forms for your spotlight. We encourage each artist to provide us with information that is important to their process. Each spotlight will be promoted on our website and social media accounts for all of our international viewers and subscribers. Artist Spotlight applications will be free of charge through December 2019.
