Artists of Northwest Minnesota Promotional Booklet — Submit your application Today!

DEADLINE IS OCTOBER 10!

The Northwest Minnesota Arts Council is updating our Artists of Northwest Minnesota booklet and will be printing 3,000 copies of our 5th edition this winter. This is a marketing booklet that will be distributed throughout our region.

We are looking for a variety of creative people and artists to provide information for this booklet, but we’d love to include bands, musicians, performing artists, or writers. The cost for a listing for individuals is $20. In addition to the listing you will receive 20 booklets, which makes the listing practically free!  The booklet helps those who are listed reach out to the general public and is a means to help the public “get in touch with them” to purchase art, book them, or have them provide a service. The booklet will include visual artists, fine crafters, performing artists like musicians, dancers, actors, creative writers, fine art photographers, creative videographers, serious graphic artists, interior design artists, landscape artists, journalists, screenwriters, history writers, editors, artistic architects, very unique artsy floral designers, theater directors, choreographers, accompanists, bands, folk musicians, and more.

While our approach will be inclusive, criteria will be applied related to selection.  Things like tattoo, taxidermy, kit crafters, pre-existing patterns from a book crafters, and purchased ceramics that are just painted don’t fit as nicely unless they are over the top excellent in technique or if they are preserving a fine artistic tradition like Rosemaling, for instance. Please contact us if you have questions.

Arts organizations, dance studios, stores with local art, local suppliers of supplies and materials for artists, coffee shops that have open mic or live bands often, etc. will be included in the back of the booklet.

If you would like to be listed, please print out an entry form, fill it out and mail to us. Here is the form:

There is also an entry form for businesses. It also costs $20 for businesses/groups that want to have a logo or picture in the booklet. Here is the form for businesses: NWMAC Groups Application form 2017 edition.

We are also considering briefly listing very artistic local festivals in this edition. These festivals would need to have a very strong history of existence – since we print every three years + an “arts budget” of a certain amount to qualify.  If you think your festival qualifies and you are interested in being listed, please contact Mara at director@nwartscouncil.org.

Please spread the word to other creative and artistic residents in our region!

 

Call to Artists. Are you creating art that speaks directly to what is happening in the world today?

Coronavirus is impacting every aspect of our lives. Are you creating art that speaks directly to what is happening in the world today — social distancing, shelter in place or anxiety around a new virus?

For example, artistic photographs of families playing games; paintings related to events not occurring; or journaling on coronavirus and then creating poetry, writing songs, painting, drawing, or capturing photos specifically based on your journal entry.

This can be a time to create art directly related to your feelings during this time of hardship, anxiety, sickness, isolation, or very challenging change. Stay tuned — if this creates a body of work to show, the NWMAC may create a future exhibit around this theme — and stay safe!  

What are you creating?
