July 21 - Vancouver - "Starving" to Successful
Filed under: Event Tags: Instruction Opportunities
Xanadu Gallery Presents:"Starving" to SuccessfulAn intensive workshop where you will learn everything you need to know to get into galleries and sell more art
Thursday, July 21st, 2011
5:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Holiday Inn Hotel Vancouver
711 West Broadway, Vancouver, BC V5Z3Y2
My artist wife Heather Anderson and I are signed up, are you? This should be quite an interesting evening.
Jason is an experienced gallery operator, based in Scottsdale Arizona, who in my opinion, gets it in our new and evolving world. He is also a gifted writer, having authored a very popular book Starving Artist to Gallery Artist An Art Marketing Guide for Growing your Art Career and Becoming a Gallery Artist
I enjoyed reading it so much that even though I only help artists to promote art, (not being an artist myself) I jumped at the chance to go to this workshop. I predict Jason will bring a lot of no-nonsense very practical information based on his very successful book, and wide business experience. Do not miss out, this will sell out I am sure.

Hope to see you there!Cam Anderson, Webmaster of MyArtClub.Com read more ...

Google that question you have!
Filed under: Support Fraud Tags: Instruction Formatting+Text
Each time you encounter a question or a computer error, just remember Let Me Google That! (LMGT) Here are a couple uses for Google that can save artists a lot of leg work, and even from losing money: Art Scam Research and Computer How To's
Art Scam Research:
Over the last couple weeks, MyArtClub.Com has received more than one artist request regarding a proposal to advertise. In one case Google provided fairly quickly a direct link to a blog where many artists had already asked and answered the same question.
This one seemed legitimate, and at a cost of only $15 per entry, not a large risk: International Contemporary Masters
Yet another, was more directly identified as a scam. But they wanted $1,900 and that is a huge risk!: NY Arts Magazine
It is relatively easy to find these. Just enter into the Google search bar the name of the company making the offer. Then peruse the results. Maybe add qualifying words if that does not seem to find what you want, like add the word scam or problem
Computer How To's
Occasionally related to your computer or your website, you may wonder, "how do I .....??" (you fill in the blank, like say, resize an image file)
Just ask the question and often up will come a variety of answers, sometimes even demonstration videos etc.
For example, Googling "How do I resize an image" comes up with resizing tools. If you were to add MyArtClub to the request, as in "How do I resize an image MyArtClub", you come to our blog on the subject, at Resize your images
Sometimes we get a totally unintelligible error from our computers. Those friendly grey pop ups that write a bunch of gibberish across our screen, and basically tell us in no uncertain terms that we are not going to get what we wanted.
Here is what to do. Write down the exact words of the error message, and enter the whole thing into the Google search bar. Almost certainly you will find a discussion about the very same error, and more than likely instructions on exactly what to do that would assist you.
So all you need to do is ask Google in as specific a way as you can, as a normal question, and you will find many have asked before you. Of course MyArtClub.Com will support you on these or any other aspects, anytime. Just write to us, at webmaster@MyArtClub.Com
What have you used Google to do for you lately? read more ...

Creating active links on any artist website
Filed under: Utility Email Support Feature Tags: HTML Instruction
The great thing about having a website is you can build in links to anything. MyArtClub.com websites design enables artists and art groups to place links anywhere there is a text box. This is done using HTML code. Please refer to our earlier blog on the many uses of HTML codes, My text all runs together. Whats with that?
This blog focuses on helping you make your links active. The way many artists provide a referring web address on their sites is to write out the website or email address. While this is literally showing the link, say like www.MyArtClub.Com, it does not make it easy for the reader to activate the page by clicking on the words, like this version does: www.MyArtClub.Com .
To bring the words to life, here is what you do:
Link to other sites
, use the following html format:
Click Here For My Other Site
where you substitute your particular web address for "http://members.yahoo.com/myothersite"and where you substitute what you want to be clicked on for Click Here for My Other Site Works for emails too!
To create an active link that opens an email addressed to your email address, use the following html format:
where you substitute your email address twice in the above, for email@example.com
Note You MUST use the exact symbols and (from experience!) test every time you add a new link to make sure it works! read more ...
