The Curator's Salon Magazine arrives in May 2021 and artists are invited to submit their work for inclusion.
I talk about publications as a different way for artists to show their art and how this can lend credibility, visibility and validation for an artist.
In this episode I also discuss what I look for in a submission, not just for this publication but for anything I am curating or when I am on a selection panel.

6:19I see a lot of artists websites and I have noticed that an artist with a lot of experience can still have a poor website. Whether an artist is new to the game or they have years of experience under their belt, I have noticed their website can still be letting them down. This typically happens when they don't communicate their recent experience or upcoming events, and have not thought through the website visitor journey. So many artist websites neglect the visitor journey and their sites are in need of updating with recent and current experiences of the artists. In this episode I share some of the areas that can help you update your website and create a better visitor journey so your website really works for you.Details for my 3 month program starting 5th October can be seen herehttps://thecuratorssalon.com/on-being-seen

Show Your Art - How to build an art career without a gallery
15:55I talk about my book, Show Your Art, How to build an art career without a gallery.I published this book in April 2020 as an ebook, then as a paperback in August 2020. In this episode I talk about writing the book, and the joy of seeing it make positive impact on the lives of the artists who it was written for. Originally aimed at artists in the early stages of their career, the book aims to empower artists to take things into their own hands rather than wait for a gallery to come calling. After all, there are more artists than galleries could ever manage. I'm delighted the book hit bestseller status for both the ebook and the paperback.You can get the book on Amazon worldwide
