How Naples Artists Are Using SEO to Bring Awareness to Their Art  from Art Nomad  (2017/5/24 0:04) 

The world is full of starving artists. One of the major reasons for that is because it’s so difficult for artists to get their work in front of the right people. Art is strange in that what one person finds fascinating may be another person’s nightmare. So getting as many eyes on your art as possible is the best way to sell it. Until now, that process involved going to art shows, getting galleries to display your art, and a million other difficult things.

Today, with social media and search engines, local artists can get their work in front of a lot of eyeballs without ever even leaving their home. We spoke with a renowned SEO expert and the owner of Search Mavericks, a SEO company in Naples, Florida about how he is helping local artists to sell more of their art. For those of us who don’t know about SEO, it’s basically an acronym for “Search Engine Optimization“, which is a set of techniques that are used by internet marketers in order to get their websites to rank higher in Google for their selected keywords.

“Social media advertising is great for reaching the right audience, and we use that quite often. But one thing we’ve found is that many collectors tend to seek out local artists to find talent nearby. By using search engine optimization (SEO), we can target local buyers in the Naples, Florida area by using keywords that they would be likely to type into Google. Once we get those people onto a website or web property that we own, we can then remarket using Facebook and Google Adsense and get them coming back to our sites again and again.”

“There’s also the possibility for getting their images to rank in Google’s image search, which can help to get clicks to their website as well. All of these things combined can lead to a very powerful campaign for selling your art.”

Project11UP Memorial 9/11 Sculptures  from Art Nomad  (2016/7/9 4:47) 

This video shows Sandra Priest as the sole artist for the Project 11up limited series of 17, sixteen thousand pound works of art sculptures made out of parts of the concrete slurry wall that surrounded the Original World Trade Center in New York City.

The slurry wall was the only thing left standing after 9/11. A section of that wall had to be cut out to bring in the new PATH subway hub that had to be built to bring in all visitors to the New Trade Center area. After over 100 pieces were recycled, there came a grass roots effort to save these few pieces for an artists touch.

Sandra Priest accepted that task as the only professional artist to be now in charge of this Project 11up, 9/11 memorial sculpture body of work. Please contact San so she can work with you so you can have one of these as your own Memorial. 239-269-5733

How Arts And Crafts Can Enrich Your Life  from Art Nomad  (2016/3/26 3:45) 

woman-enjoying-artIt’s known that doing arts and crafts relaxes a person. However, it can be hard to find the right hobby for your interests. Read through the tips that follow for some great ideas that will inspire you.

Don’t pressure kids too much when they are enjoying arts and crafts time. Remember that the purpose is to let the creative juices flow, and there is no right or wrong. They won’t be able to create if you’re constantly telling them they are doing something wrong.

If supplies are pricey in your area, start shopping at secondhand stores. You can find many original supplies at Goodwill and other similar stores. These supplies don’t last long, so keep checking.

Stay focused on one element at a time. Plan the projects, purchase the supplies, begin the project and complete it before starting something new. But this is how so many people never complete a craft project! Take the time to complete a project before beginning another. This gives you the best chances of finishing.

Allow your child’s creativity to determine how art projects turn out. You should not show an example at all or show off different examples so that your kids can use their imaginations. For example, they could glue an ear where an eye should be. Just let them have fun.

Etsy is a great place to purchase the supplies for arts and crafts projects. This site sells items from individuals. Besides having the ability to buy your supplies here, this website also lets you sell any arts and crafts projects you want. This is great for vintage media pieces.

Stay organized. There are different ways to do this, but you should pick something that makes sense to you. When you have organized supplies, you will be able to find them when you are working on your projects. You will always be aware of which supplies are already on hand.

Looking for supplies for a new crafting project? Take a look in your kitchen. You are sure to find lots of interesting items there that can be used. Tin foil, empty can and glass jars are some of the treasures that await. Even dried beans and pasta can be used.

There is no argument: arts and crafts are a great way for all kinds of people to enjoy themselves. You may find it hard to know which pursuit is the right one for you. Hopefully, this article has helped you in finding your passion.

Ella Sterling Creates Signature Art for Southwest Florida Wine&Food Fest  from Art Nomad  (2013/2/9 4:16) 

Here comes the sun!

ella-sterling-paintingAt least that’s what Ella Sterling, child artist for the 2013 Wine & Food Fest thinks. Ella’s original watercolor painting will be auctioned at the Wine Fest Grand Tasting and Auction on February 23, 2013. Ella, now a healthy, active kindergartner, was born in March of 2007, nearly three months premature. She spent the first two months of her life in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at The Children’s Hospital.

 

Ella’s premature birth was totally unexpected, according to her mom, Sara Sterling. “I had a normal, healthy pregnancy, so when my water broke suddenly, I thought, they’ll be able to stop this and I’ll go home.” But, Ella had other plans. Born at just 30 weeks and weighing in at three pounds, Ella was rushed immediately from North Collier Hospital in Naples to The Children’s Hospital (in the special NICU ambulance purchased through donations). Sara requested an immediate discharge from the hospital and joined Ella that day at The Children’s Hospital. Taking an early leave from her teaching job, Sara spent every day at The Children’s Hospital.

 

Although Sara knew nothing about The Children’s Hospital prior to Ella’s birth, she was relieved that the hospital was so close to her home in Naples.

“If we didn’t have this facility here, we would have had to go to Miami or Tampa and rent a place to stay. Because the Children’s Hospital was so close, I was able to spend nights in my own bed and every day by Ella’s side.”

 

From the initial contact, the staff at The Children’s Hospital was able to put Sara and her husband James at ease. “The nurses were amazing, beginning with Marilyn, who picked Ella up as part of the transport team. She made us feel totally comfortable. All of the nursing staff was professional and caring. They didn’t just take care of Ella, they took care of my husband and me.”

“With a preemie, life is an emotional roller coaster, everything is two steps forward, one step back,” Sara said. “But, because of the staff at the Children’s Hospital, we were well-prepared to deal with the setbacks.” When Ella left the hospital after two months, she was sent home with oxygen and monitors, but Sara and James were well-equipped to handle their daughter’s medical needs. “The Children’s Hospital not only trained us to use the equipment, they provided us with a support network. We were able to call with questions and concerns whenever we wanted and the nurses would call us, just to check in and see how we were doing. We are so thankful that Ella wound up in Fort Myers.”

 

Wine Fest Chairman Dr. Steve Machiz says the children’s artwork is typically one of the highest-bid lots.

The Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest is a signature event of the SWFL Children’s Charities, Inc., a 501c3 non-profit organization that provides funding to local charities serving local children. It begins the evening of Feb. 22, when local families host Chef Vintner dinners in private homes around Southwest Florida for invited guests donating a minimum of $1,000 per seat. Each dinner will showcase wines by featured vintners and culinary offerings from Southwest Florida’s finest chefs.

Then on Feb. 23, the chefs, vintners, dinner guests and others come together again, at the Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club for the Grand Tasting and Auction. Participating chefs prepare their favorite signature dishes to accompany the wine tastings.

The Auction features exceptional packages of special and unique wines, exclusive trips, amazing dining experiences and more. Last year’s event netted $2.3 million for Southwest Florida Children’s Charities whose primary beneficiary is The Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida.
