Inspired by last week's ARTLIFE posting on How to be a successufl artists - I thought I'd chuck up the following bits form my email INBOX.
btw - DON'T LOOK is a new, great gallery in Dulwich Hill that is great for video/sound/installation works (it's a shofront with nice little boothable rooms)
it has fantastic wallpaper in one room - plus a 2 way mirror too.
And it's cheap.
Do you want to get your artwork onto an Avant Card postcard? Avant Card
is currently looking for a wide variety of 'great art' to put onto
postcards and distribute into venues Australia-wide. Your artwork can be
themed around a festivity (Christmas, New Year, Valentines Day, Easter
etc.), or you may chose to incorporate Avant Card in some way (their
'globe' logo or a small blurb relating to Avant Card). If you are one of
the successful applicants, 20,000 copies of your postcard will be
distributed across venues for two to four weeks. You will also be
provided with 1,000 copies for your own use. Full credit will be given
on the back of the postcard with including contact details, website and
a small blurb. There is no fee involved to or from the artist; this is
an initiative aimed at supporting Australian artists in providing
national exposure. Artists maintain copyright of their work and all work
must be original.
