Artsy Shark showcases the talents of visual artists through individually published portfolio articles. Since 2010, more than 2,000 artists from around the world have been featured. Artists are selected through a Call for Artists that happens three times per year. Our current Call for Artists is open and submissions will be accepted until the deadline of March 2, 2023.

We encourage artists and makers in all mediums to apply, including: painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, mixed media, clay, fiber, digital art, collage, glass, wood, printmaking, metal and others.

Every published feature presents a collection of the artist’s work and tells their story in their own words. Artists may describe their inspiration, technique, concept or accomplishments. A prominent link in each article sends readers to the artist’s own website. This increases the opportunity to make sales, capture email addresses of interested visitors, and gain followers.

Featured artists are promoted through social media to our large following. We also promote all features to our extensive list of email subscribers. Every artist feature remains permanently accessible on our site. These be seen in our Featured Artist Gallery.

This Call for Artists also offers a bonus opportunity. Artsy Shark has partnered with art collector Josh Kasper, who provides exposure to artists by producing videos of live and virtual studio visits. Josh will choose ten people from our final group of accepted artists and extend invitations to them for a filmed interview. Their videos will be promoted extensively. Each artist will also receive a copy of their video to use as they wish for marketing collateral or other purposes.
