The online platform will soon be publically promoted as the place to find Maryland-made art sold online
October 30, 2015Press Release
In advance of launching its new Maryland Art Marketplace on November 2, 2015, the MSAC is inviting Maryland artists of all disciplines to sign-up for the Maryland Artist Registry, and encouraging those with online selling sites for their art, crafts or artistic merchandise to opt-in to the Maryland Art Marketplace during the process.
Once launched later this fall, the Maryland Art Marketplace will be promoted by the Arts Council and its partners as a hub for Maryland-made art—including books, music and visual art—that is available for purchase online.
While the Marketplace will focus on directing buyers and gift-givers to Maryland artists’ online selling sites, the focus of the Maryland Artist Registry will continue to be connecting Maryland artists—even those who don’t sell online—with opportunities and exposure. Its recently launched redesign supports audio, jpeg and PDF files, as well as embedded video.
Artists already registered in the Maryland Artist Registry can opt-in to the Maryland Art Marketplace by logging in and editing their account. Those who are not already in the Maryland Artist Registry should create an account, and opt-in to the Maryland Art Marketplace during the signup process. For questions or assistance, email Paul Shortt, registry administrator.
