There are many opportunities for artists to be found on the vast Internet such as calls for artists, grants, workshops, residencies, and 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 and have my personal stamp of approval for quality and dedication. Each one provides a different array of services.
ART TIMES Journal
