Are you a visual artist in need of guidance promoting and selling your work or looking for broader commercial opportunities and projects?
Over the past 15 years, dot-art has supported a wide range of talented artists, both emerging and established, through our unique, ever-developing membership package. We are always generating lots of exciting and diverse projects for our members to engage with, such as exhibitions and sales opportunities at our city-centre gallery, as well as professional guidance, online promotion, and regular showcases.
Working with businesses to put art in the workplace and public realm, our innovative and popular art rental scheme is a fantastic way to generate income and gain valuable exposure for our artists. We match our artists to specific opportunities whether it be a client wanting a bespoke commission, a corporate client looking to fill their premises with local artists work, or a new exhibition open for submissions, we have plenty to offer.
From working in schools to teaching online, we have a fantastic team of artist members delivering workshops, classes, and courses for audiences of all ages. We are here to help our members get the most out of their artistic careers, through both training and expertise, and direct access to paid opportunities. In February, we developed our first ‘Working in Schools’ workshop with dot-art Schools and Curious Minds, with support from Arts Council England. This introductory workshop helped our artists explore and adapt their own artistic practice and professional experience to deliver workshops in schools. We support our artists by providing them with opportunities to develop their creative practice, enabling them to explore exciting new avenues.
dot-art are always looking for artists (including painters, photographers, sculptors, printmakers and mixed media arts to join our community, and during this time of global disconnection, we believe that championing and engaging people through art and creativity is important now more than ever.
To support local artists through these unprecedented times, dot-art is launching an exclusive package which offers the first three months of our year-long artist membership, free for new members.
The dot-art team are currently working hard at home to support our artist members, by delivering art and culture to our audience with the mission to keep people inspired, connected and creative. Our online shop is open and together with our fantastic team of artists and couriers; we continue to deliver artwork safely to those at home, brightening up these darker times through the joy of art.
In this spirit, we are delighted to be working on a new group exhibition ‘View From a Window’, an initiative set to inspire our members, existing and new, to create work during a time where creative output can feel strained. This will be our first exhibition in the dot-art Gallery on reopening and we hope that when this crisis is over, the exhibition will give us all the opportunity to reflect on our experiences, remember lessons learnt and appreciate our new-found freedom.
