Exciting Online Exhibition November 1st – December 31st

Planning an exhibition in the Covid-19 era presents significant issues. It seems clear that resurgence of the virus could possibly force last-minute cancellation or strict social distancing severely limiting visitor numbers. Such a last-minute cancellation would mean that artists would spend money sending work in to an exhibition that might not happen and that would likely have far less visitors. Having taken everything into account we have determined, sadly, that we must cancel the live exhibition this year.

We have developed an exciting virtual exhibition to run from November 1 to December 31, 2020. Prizewinners and Jury scores (and fit with the theme) will get the best positions. We will be able to feature 100 pieces in the virtual 2- month show rather than the 50 we can accommodate in the real-life show. Another great plus is that we will be able to feature EVERY entry as we will reserve an additional 25 places for a “rolling exhibition” so every piece will be featured for at least 5-7 days.

All pieces may be offered for sale (or not depending on preference) and we will be including links to artist websites and bios as well as full details on the piece.

We are planning interesting online events to run during the exhibition.
This will be a wonderful opportunity to showcase the work of all entrants to the ENDANGERED Fine Art & Photography Contest.

Call to Artists for “Artnado”- A Juried Art Show at the South Florida Fairgrounds Expo Center

The result of Jack Busa caring about art and listening to artists is a new juried art show in our area, which is partnering with the League for the Education of the Arts in Florida (LEAF).  “Artnado” will take place at the South Florida Fairgrounds, featuring 2D and 3D creations November 8th and 9th, 2014.  This indoor show has a lot to offer to artists and art patrons alike.  Using high-technology, patrons will be able to see participating artists’ work in situ as well as in their exhibition areas.  Artists are highly encouraged to demonstrate their techniques, to further inform the art loving public.  The Rickie Report applauds this trend, believing that better informed art lovers become more enthusiastic art patrons.  Artnado also includes an Art Contest for all Palm Beach County middle school students.  Half of the proceeds from the profit of ticket sales will be awarded to art programs in the local schools. We want to point out that there is no connection between the presenting organization, Artistic Synergy and Art Synergy (ARTWEEK at Art Palm Beach).  The Rickie Report shares this Call to Artists and looks forward to hearing when you get accepted!

How to Pitch a Story to a Jewelry Magazine

Jewelry artists are invited to share their techniques, tips and projects with an internationally distributed magazine.  The Rickie Report hopes you will take advantage of this opportunity – and let us know when you get accepted!

 

How to Pitch a Story Idea to

Art Jewelry Magazine

 

ART-CV0313.indd

 

1)      Decide what jewelry-making techniques or tips you want to share with readers. (You could do a project, like how to make a ring, in order to teach multiple techniques, or you could teach a general technique, like how to etch metal.)

2)    Make or choose a piece of your jewelry that’s a good example of those techniques, or make samples that illustrate your idea. (So, you’d choose a ring if your project were how to make a ring, or send in an etched panel as a sample that shows your etching technique.)

 

 3)     Send a couple paragraphs (e-mail or snail mail is fine) outlining your idea (share key points your article will cover or what tips and techniques readers will learn from seeing how you make your jewelry), and include a picture of your jewelry or sample.

Mail to Editor, Art Jewelry at the appropriate address (see below). If you’re sending the actual piece, please let us know how much you’d like the piece insured for upon return.

 

4)      Sit back and relax. If your story idea is accepted, an editor who is knowledgeable in your field will get in touch with you within a month to walk you through the submission process.
