Hi, my name is Abbeth. I'm an artist out of Portland, Maine and I'm going to tell you how to get paintings noticed. So there are a whole variety of ways to get your work out there and I try to cover all bases with that and you should too. First of all, find out if there are any local art walks or art festivals in your town or surrounding city or wherever and sign up for these festivals as much as possible and it's a good idea to create small and affordable work as well as larger gallery style work because then you can just go out on the street and sell your work and get it into the hands of as many people as possible and also go from the other end and approach galleries with a digital portfolio of your work and often they like it if you send in a letter with a cover letter and a request to have a show at their gallery. So, having your work in galleries is a very great way to get your work out there and of course, there are infinite resources on line for getting your work out there and I would say in this day and age it's very important to have a website. So, I have a website that I think it's pretty easy to remember,, and so yeah, it's a good idea to try to get a website that has a catchy name that people will remember and definitely definitely make business cards and any time people ask what you do say I'm an artist and give out your business card. So really just approach it from every different angle that you possibly can and you should be able to get your work out there pretty well. My name is Abbeth, and I just showed you and told you how to get your work noticed.
