The Visual Arts Video Library is designed to
provide working artists with a valuable tool
by which they can broaden their knowledge
and understanding of why they create the
art that they do. The library can also be
used as a source for inspiring original art
work, as well as offering visual cues to aid
in skill development.

Get to know the directors and
curators of museums closest to
you, then show them your art. It can
be a fast track to fame. To help you
get started here's a museum listing:
Each submitted piece must have been created in 2012 or later. Minimum age per entrant is 16. There is no special theme and
no limit to the number of submissions. Submitting a work does not mean that work is automatically accepted. Send images as
jpeg or tiff (less than 2 Mb) at about 72 dpi to firstname.lastname@example.org.
ALL accepted art will be placed on our popular YouTube channel.
ALL ACCEPTED ARTISTS are also offered a free YouTube video of 10 selected works from their portfolios. You can view
our current videos by visiting the channel link located on the upper right of our Front Page. Click on the YouTube logo. Don't
forget to subscribe to our channel (there's no cost).
We have started the judging and notification process early so we can meet our goal of rolling out the YouTube
accepted art video one week after the June 1 deadline. Artists entering now can expect their art assessments
about one week later.
An artist entering multiple works can have more than one work accepted. All of these works will be shown on our YouTube
channel. and in our video library. Example: an artist enters 5 works. Three are accepted. All 3 will be shown on
YouTube video and in our video library.
YOUR WORK WILL BE JUDGED ON FOUR CATEGORIES:
The evaluation for each of your entries shows the form the jurors used in grading your piece. This can aid you in determining
what artistic areas need strengthening,
There are 6 art divisions in all of our shows: 1. Acrylic/Oil; 2. Collage/Mixed Media; 3. Pastel, Colored
Pencil, Graphics; 4. Photography, Print-Making, Digital Art; 5. Water Media (water color, egg tempera);
6. 3-Dimensional (sculptural and other free standing, non animated art).
Gallery or Museum Review of Accepted Work is possible
Whenever a gallery or art museum is interested in one of our accepted artist's work or style, that gallery or museum makes
first contact with us. We, in turn, immediately send an email to the artist, supplying the inquiring venue's name and email
address. At that point we are out of the loop on that contact. We take no commission.
Have a question? Send us an email and one of our friendly volunteer staff members will contact you within 24 hours
TO GALLERY OWNERS & MUSEUM CURATORS: To contact an artist, email us for address. We charge no
commission on sales.
