Founded and run by artists, we know what you need to get ahead.
What galleries does your work fit in to?
What shows should you submit to?
What social media strategies will help you gain more followers?
It’s never been harder to be an artist than in this age of digital communication. A successful artist needs to be everywhere both in real time and online to get their name known. You need gallery and press contacts; you need a social media presence and a digital portfolio. We recognize it’s nearly impossible for an artist today to do all that networking, earn a living and still find time for studio work.
