Theme

Abstractions in the visual arts are about expressing general ideas or qualities of an actual person, object, and action.  It is about expressing ideas and emotions by using elements such as colors and lines without attempting to recreate the original image.  The basis for abstractions is to, in varying degrees, alter the reality of the subject thru Photography or digital art.  This competition invites photographers and digital artists to use their own interpretations of these ideas, using any type of subject matter and using any style of photography or digital art.

Exhibitions Without Walls, a website specializing in marketing and promoting photographers and digital artists, is growing.  The firm has expanded by increasing staff and adding services, according to co-founder Ed Wedman.  Exhibitions Without Walls will continue to help photographers and digital artists promote and market themselves.  Now it looks more broadly at what makes an artist successful and adds services to match.

Based on survey results, we will continue to offer promotional and marketing opportunities.  We will continue to conduct competitions for photographers and digital artists to gain recognition (and win prizes) using highly qualified judges.

In addition to these ongoing services, Exhibitions Without Walls will increase the number of “how to” related articles and interviews. The idea is to help artists succeed in their art, as well as in their marketing and promotional opportunities.

To assist with this expansion, Exhibitions Without Walls has added Eric Hatch as Editor.  He will be guiding editorial direction, conducting interviews, and will solicit article contributions from our community, as well as writing directly for the site.  Eric has been a professional photographer for 16 years and a professional writer for 50 years. He is an experienced competition juror, and has won numerous awards from the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) and various photo competitions.  He has a Gold Quill award from the International Association of Business Communicators and was Communicator of the Year for the Air/Space Writers Association.  We want to welcome Eric Hatch to Exhibitions Without Walls.  This will allow us to have more time in program development and in identifying and developing new partnerships.  Ultimately, we hope this will strengthen our mission and commitment to photographers and digital artists.

Prize Sponsor Art & Beyond Publications

Written by edward on . Posted in Competitions / Exhibitions, Information, Promotional Opportunity, Publicity

 

banner_ad_A_B_Publ_big-300x247From time to time we like to provide more information about our prize sponsors.  Art & Beyond Publications has been a longtime supporter with their prize of a free one-year membership that includes being a part of their bi-monthly magazine.  We think that this is a great tool for photographers and digital artists to add to their overall marketing and promotion strategy.

The Art & Beyond Magazine is a bridge between artists and the art world. Mila Ryk, Publisher, comments “It is an important marketing and promotional tool for all artists to have when exhibiting their work, whether at art shows, art expos, or small exhibitions. In my opinion, the most important thing to remember is that potential buyers most often prefer to purchase art from “published artists”.

Both in print and online, the Art and Beyond Magazine exposes and promotes artists to art galleries, art museums and publishers.  Being a part of Art & Beyond Publications guarantees that art galleries, art museums and publishers will be exposed to the photographer’s or digital artist’s work six times a year.

In addition to the magazine, Art and Beyond Publications offers magazine cover competitions, membership in an online gallery; Books – Living Artists of Today: Contemporary Art; and opportunities to join others in exhibiting at major exhibition events in the United States. For more information about joining upcoming exhibition opportunities, contact Mila Ryk.
