Resources For Artist Opportunities

Resources for Artist Opportunities

I came across this wonderful article by Renee Phillips, Artist Coach. It's an article about Resources Opportunities for Artists. I thought it would benefit many of you so I am sharing it on the OSA blog.

There are many opportunities for artists to be found on the vast Internet such as calls for artists, grants, workshops, residencies, art exhibitions and other events. Here are three of the most popular and respected resources where artists can find opportunities and other valuable information. ART TIMES Journal, Professional Artist magazine, and Art Opportunities Monthly have been in existence since the 1980’s. Each one provides a different array of services. 

Art Times Journal

ART TIMES Journal, is a highly respected publication that was launched by Cornelia Seckel and Raymond Steiner, wife and husband, in 1984. Its motto is “The go to source for creatives and those who appreciate good writings”. This free online publication provides a quarterly commentary and resource for the fine and performing arts and includes: art editorials, art reviews, essays and critiques; short fiction and poetry; opportunities listings, essays on dance, theater, film, music and an extensive calendar of cultural events.
It also contains a listing directory of opportunities for artists. It’s free. You’ll find that page here. The ART TIMES facebook and twitter page keeps fans up to date with new events, essays, and videos. If you’d like to be on ART TIMES email list simply send them an email to

Professional Artist Magazine
I had a very lovely article about me and my work written by Renee Phillips appear in this magazine last year. It opened many opportunities for me. Professional Artist Magazine is known as “The Magazine For Professional Artists”. It was formerly known as “Art Calendar”,  founded in the 1980’s. It is dedicated to providing business tools and information for independent visual artists from all backgrounds. Published in magazine format four times a year, each issue presents practical business advice on subjects such as art marketing, art law, portfolio development, exhibition presentation, communication skills and sales techniques, as well as articles to encourage and motivate artists to succeed. It also provides a comprehensive list of calls to artists available both in the printed magazine (by subscription) and online (free). You can subscribe to its free email newsletter “The Buzz” by going here
