Facebook Page:  Misty Oles has set up a FACEBOOK page for us in the past.  Cindy Calvert has also set up a FACEBOOK page for Carolina Artists.  Please send photographs of your art work to Cindy so that she may  include them on the new Facebook page.
 
As most of you know, I have created a facebook page for The Carolina Artists. I would like to add more information about us as individuals and some of our art work / photography. If you would please send me at least one pic of a painting/drawing or one piece of photography including a little bit of information about yourself that I could include in the post. If you have a facebook page that you post your art work, send me the link and I will include that as well. If you have anything on the website, I will include that to have people go there. I would also like to do one post of the current board members/members. The more that is posted on the page, the better chances we have of people liking it. I want to get our name out so this could be a good way to do it. If you prefer that I not put you on the page, please let me know as soon as possible and I will make note of it. Also, if you have any pictures from any Carolina Artist event, please send them to me, including when and where they were.

   All artist résumés should contain:Your Name and Contact Information -- Your name should be somewhere at the top of the page and should be larger than the rest of the information presented in the résumé. Other information included here is your mailing address, home and studio phone numbers, fax number, email address, and website address if appropriate.

Education -- Education is usually the first heading listed. List all the academic degrees earned, noting honors. Also include periods of study at schools or universities attended without completing a degree. If you do not have an art related degree, you can list workshops or classes attended and notable artists /teachers you have studied with.

Honors and Awards/Grants -- This category is usually a list of honors and awards. Some artists make a separate category for grants. Under this category you want to list all recognitions of merit, prizes won in competitions, grants, fellowships, scholarships and other special recognitions. You may also want to include artist-in residences or special workshops attended.

Bibliography -- The bibliography is a record of material about you. Articles, reviews, catalogues, radio and television interviews, etc. are placed under this heading. For visual artists, the bibliography category not only includes material written about you but also lists the inclusion of your artwork in books, magazines, newspapers, and catalogues. This category should not be confused with the publications category. The publications category describes material (articles, reviews, etc.) you have written not material written about you.

Professional Affiliations -- List the professional organizations, national, regional, and local, to which you belong. If you held a position within the organization or served as a volunteer, note this as well.

Related Experience/Related Work Experience/Professional Experience -- This category is worded differently on various résumés. Many artists include on their résumé experience they feel is relevant to their professional art making career such as: teaching art; jobs held in their field; technical experience related to their artistic discipline; or lectures, workshops and presentations given as an artist. Some artists also include information under this heading that does not neatly fall into other categories on their résumé.

 Visual artist categories can include:

Exhibitions -- List the title of the exhibition, the exhibition space, and the city and state where the exhibition was presented. If your exhibition experience is extensive you may want to divide your exhibitions into separate categories of exhibitions - solo shows, group shows, juried exhibitions, invitational exhibitions, touring exhibitions, museum shows, etc. As well, if notable, the curator or juror of the exhibition is often listed.

Collections -- This category can be divided into private collections, corporate collections, permanent public collections, etc. It is considered proper etiquette to ask permission to list a private purchaser/owner of your work if you intend to list them on your résumé.

Other categories -- Visual artists may also include categories such as: commissions, residencies, and installations on their résumés. e-mail:   carolinaartists@gmail.com.

 

REMINDER TO MEMBERS: Dues of $25 are due by January 31st, 2017. After this date, a late fee of $5 is incurred and the dues are $30 for the year.
