West End and Downtown from Tom Antil on Exhibit-it.
If you haven’t checked out Exhibit-it lately. We’ve added several new features to the site. Knowing that you already have other sites in place, we’ve incorporated custom embed codes into every exhibit page.
By using Exhibit-it as a marketing tool on other sites, you can now enhance an otherwise static portfolio site with a stunning HD exhibit video. Even your visitors can copy and paste the HTML embed code into their favorite social site, WordPress blog, etc… (see above)
Starting at only $48/year, Exhibit-it is a must for any aspiring artist. It’s more than just a slideshow! Turn your ordinary thumbnail galleries into an HD video and make sure that your visitors and collectors come back for more.
Exhibit-it is a game changer for artists looking for new ways to gain exposure for their art.
After 20 years working with artists we’ve learned that it takes time for a career to blossom, and to find a gallery to represent your art. But finding an exhibition space or a gallery to represent and exhibit your work isn’t easy for the emerging or the established artist.
A rise in real estate prices and an uneasy economy have made gallery ownership tricky/risky business. It’s not just the private sector that’s struggling, local governments and non-profit groups are also struggling to find financing for public spaces and artist-run galleries.
You don’t have to go digging far into forums and group discussions to hear artist concerns about the lack of venues available for exhibiting their work. Popular questions such as:
“How do emerging artists find galleries to exhibit their art?”
“Why are there no exhibition opportunities?
“Help, I can’t find a gallery to exhibit my art?”
With fewer exhibit spaces becoming available, and a steady crop of graduating artists joining the current mix of established artists, there’s a problem looking for a solution.
In response to the need for alternative art exhibition spaces, artists are embracing new methods for gaining exposure for their work: online gallery spaces, virtual art shows and art exhibiting using video to name a few.
“Be Everywhere” is the catch-phrase used by our new art exhibition platform called Exhibit-it. Recently coming out of private beta, Exhibit-it offers artists an opportunity to create virtual solo art exhibits and share them using the power of video. Exhibits are curated by the artist using Exhibit-it’s image uploader, then they are organized to tell a story and finally published to the internet as HD video. Exhibit-it has the tools for artists to share their video art exhibit with their social networks, including Vimeo and Youtube.
Video is more likely to be shared on social networks than text, making Exhibit art shows accessible to every person, and viewable on computers, tablets and mobile devices. Maximum exposure to art enthusiasts and art dealers is the promise of Exhibit-it and it’s innovative approach to art marketing.
Now that we’ve said goodbye to 2013, I wanted to take a moment to share one of our key marketing resources with you. This is timely, because it’s this time of year you should be evaluating your business objectives and goals, which includes developing an effective marketing strategy. …Read more
Recently, we entertained a group of photography students at the Fidelis studio. This is one of the things we like about our job, because we love to meet new people and enjoy the opportunity to be introduced to new artists and their work. Lots of great ideas were shared and we had the opportunity to answer lots of questions about fine art printmaking and self-publishing art. …Read more
Canadian photographer, Greg Girard has been photographing the many faces of Asia for over two decades. So when I heard that he was leading a photographic expedition to China, I wanted to share the opportunity with you.
If you haven’t guessed, I’m a huge fan. First admiring Greg’s work at the Toronto Art Fair in 2006. Now I get to admire Greg’s over-size photographs in production at Fidelis and on exhibit at Monte Clarke Gallery Vancouver. FYI Greg’s new exhibition opens in Vancouver on December 7th, 2013 running to January 11, 2104.
Not only is Greg an established lens-based fine artist, his assignments for National Geographic magazine include “Can China Go Green?” (June 2011) and “The New Great Walls” (May 2008). Greg has produced four books, and his work has appeared in TIME, Newsweek, and Fortune.
