Time after time, you
submit to so many artist calls, and time after time, you are rejected. We are
going to give you a secret with the top five reasons why artists are
5. Ego. You are
an established artist and now you do not submit your best work. You assume
because of your name that the jurors will just accept whatever you choose to
4. Quality of
images. Do not submit images that are shot with an iPad, iPhone or by you if
you are not a professional photographer. Hire someone who specializes in
photography that will show the quality of your art.
3. Poorly written
artist statements and/or CVs. Often times the imagery is beautiful but either
your CVs are not up to date or your artist statement does not reflect the body
of work. Hire someone who specializes in this area.
2. Missed the deadline. You must meet the deadline. Period. If the coordinators extend the deadline or you were invited to submit after the deadline, that is different. Otherwise, no questions asked.
1. You do not follow
directions. This by far is the number one reason why artists are not selected
for calls for exhibition. Read the entire call before anxiously submitting your
work. This makes the difference. You take the risk of being disqualified
because you might not have read one line that made the difference between you
being in an exhibition or not. Do not take the risk of losing your fee because
you assume you did the call correctly but chose not to read the directions.
Take your time.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.
(January 6, 2017) – Approaching
its fourth year, the vision of this pop up multi-media art fair held in
the City of WPB during ArtPalmBeach Week exhibiting regional South Florida
artists has been very successful. Over the last three years, over 150 South
Florida artists have exhibited at this art fair. This year, 52 artists from
Brevard County to Dade will be showcased at this alternative fine art fair.
CityPlace, one of Palm Beach County’s most
favorite shopping and entertainment destinations is welcoming CONTINUUM WPB in
2017. This move was made as a decision due to the fast changes in the real
estate market. Curator and founder Trina Slade-Burks states: “When the idea for
CONTINUUM first came about, we would seek locations that were empty for long
periods of time. Raphael Clemente and his team would choose a spot that could
eventually be activated by a potential business owner. Pop-ups bring an
opportunity for this to happen. We are proud to say that CONTINUUM as brought
those opportunities for leasing agreements because of these activations.”
One of the great
things about this new move is the fact that CONTINUUM WPB will be close to
partners ArtSynergy and ArtPalmBeach who will be at the Palm Beach County
Convention Center. Partner, Rolando Chang Barrero commented about the new move:
“I think it's great! I get to attend more events since all I have to do is
cross the street from Art Palm Beach. With the richness of all the programs I
can just drop in and then return to the convention center without much ado”
Arts mission has always been to collaborate different artistic disciplines
while enhancing the community. It
accomplishes this through their well known events and supporting a local art
based charity. This year’s charity is Resource Depot, which will be supported by CONTINUUM’s
annual VIP Black Tie & Sneaker Charity Fundraiser Gala, which auctions hand
painted sneakers painted by local artists. Some of the other returning events include:Brunch
& Lecture11:30am-2:00pm and Meet the
Artists 3:00pm-5:00pm on Sunday, January
