Why Should you Participate in Online Art Exhibitions?
While Ontario announced this morning a state of emergency due to issues with the quickly spreading CODIV-19 virus, we Artists cannot afford to put a stop on our art practice and must consider alternative options for advertising our art. One of such options is entering online Art Exhibitions and Art Competitions as well as pursuing online Artist Features and other venues to promote our work without exposing our audiences to the threat of infection.
With all public gathering places, businesses and events now being ordered to close, our ability to put our artworks out for sale in art galleries and art shows will definitely be negatively impacted. Artists all over Ontario and other Provinces / Countries keep getting calls from gallery operators that exhibitions have been either canceled or postponed till fall 2020.
Those who have established online presence with large following (be that Etsy store or one’s Facebook account) can consider themselves lucky because the one viable route for advertising oneself right now that remains within reach is ONLINE. It is unfortunate to be living in these challenging times, but there are always options that are available and come handy even in the most difficult of times!
Consider entering one of the online Art Exhibitions that we are offering right now! By entering, you can be sure that your art will be promoted online even as the pandemic grows wider in scale. We are offering free entry with a promo code for our June 2020 Artists of the World Juried Exhibition, and we guarantee that at least one of the submitted artworks will be accepted from each artist. Additionally, two other Art Competitions are currently available at a huge discount too.
So why should you consider applying for an online Art Exhibition?
- Online exhibitions are a great way to promote your art without exposing yourself and others to the risk of infection.
- Online exhibitions have your art visible to the audience outside of the 4 walls of a physical gallery and thus can dramatically increase global awareness for your brand.
- Online exhibitions allow you and others share your art on other social media accounts and websites, which, again, helps increase popularity of showcased artworks.
