Become Part of a Global Community of Artisans. At our Guild we believe in helping our members get greater exposure into the world of creativity. Our specialty is our publication Guildzine. As a member we offer two opportunities throughout the year to be featured in one or all of our bi-annual publication releases. Every edition we focus on a different aspect of your creative work and our goal is to showcase this through our publication sold as a paperback on Amazon. This is an amazing opportunity to help build your published portfolio, global credit with a professional world creative organization, and a tangible marketing tool when exhibiting, teaching, or performing. We welcome Artisans of all creative outlets (music, dance, visual arts, performing arts, videographers, authors) the list is endless. Connect with members from all over the world and become a part of a supportive global network through our exclusive and private members only forum on Facebook (must have a Facebook profile to access). This is also a great place for you to let us know if you have any upcoming events so we can post them on our Facebook business page.
Our Guild will create a personal profile page with nine images of your work, your artistic biography, personal picture and a link to your personal website or store). You will also be a featured artist on our website for one months following your registration. If you do not have a personal website, this is a great economic way to have information on your art with images which you can use for marketing your business. We give our members permission to use your personal bio link on our website to add to your business cards and use to direct prospect buyers too. We strive to help all our members become recognized globally.
In addition to the above we have partnered with a local gallery (The Art Department) in Scottsdale, AZ which allows our members the ability to exhibit their work. Members are invited to participate in juried AG exhibitions, or if you are interested in exhibiting with the Gallery, we will be happy to coordinate an exhibit for you at an additional fee. This is a great opportunity for members who are interested in exhibiting there work as there are few independent galleries available for solo and group shows in the Phoenix area.
AG's Founders have a global connection to international art publishing and galleries around the world. These businesses and organizations frequently visit our website to scout talent for artist opportunities. If they are interested in your artwork they will contact us and we will present you with the opportunity to be represented by us as your agent. We are currently working with some of our members on these opportunities. As you can imaging it's very difficult to get any kind of response from art publishers, but with our close connection we can make this easier for you.
At our guild we are constantly marketing to the public on a daily basis. We hope that in our efforts to help you gain recognition, and help with your Artisan businesses through our website and marketing programs, you help our guild get recognition through your sources also. We do appreciate all the support we have from our current members and business partners, and in exchange, the only thing we ask is if you could post our logo on your website or branding platforms as a proud member of our Artisans Guild.
We have upcoming artist tips with our Founders on Facebook Live so be sure to check us out and join us on Facebook. We welcome you to also join our closed Facebook Group @ Collaborating Thru Art where you can share your artwork with other artist in the group.
Be sure to check out our Workshop link above to access valuable art related business classes, sometime we even offer free courses, so check in periodically to see what we have available.
Our Artisans Guild is very connected with their members, and in efforts to provide the best opportunities to you, we always welcome your suggestion and comments. Please feel free to connect with us if you have ideas for an exhibit, workshops, or event. We support our members and we are available to connect via skype, or google chat to speak with you personally, or you can ask questions through our forum, or simple send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope you have found this information valuable! For a very small investment of $45 for the entire year, think of all the possibilities that awaits for you and your artisan business.
Our Artisans Guild thanks you for considering these great opportunities. We are looking forward to providing support and services to better help our artisans succeed in their creative field.
