About this event

ArtWorld Friendship Day

Painters, photographers, graphic designers, and digital artists – submit your art and pitch yourself to galleries!

We’re celebrating World Friendship Day (July 30) by helping young artists make new friends. We want to help them connect to other teenage artists, professionals, instructors, collectors, and curators.

Art portfolios are an important part of the spikeview platform. We want to help emerging artists own their own narrative and maximize their potential.

ArtWorld Friendship Day is happening for two big reasons.

  1. First, entrepreneurs pitch themselves and their products to investors. That’s how they learn to improve their product and get funding. We’re giving artists a chance to pitch themselves and their work to galleries!
  2. Second, we want to acknowledge young artists with some great prizes as motivation to keep going!

We've got an exciting speaker lineup. You'll have a chance to be in the room with these mentors and ask them anything about a career in the visual arts!

We will have a replay of these sessions, but you must RSVP to get access.

9am PT / 12pm ET (60-min session)

How young artists can thrive in the new digital economy.

The pandemic has been devastating for the arts economy. A major factor is that artists have learned to make their money from physical things that couldn’t be digitized. The new digital economy opens new doors for prosperity in creative fields.

Rosanne Cash, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter had this to say about our speaker: “Deresiewicz is one of the great advocates for artists in the new digital economy, and his book is the most refreshing wake-up call for young artists that I have ever read.”

Bill Deresiewicz is an award-winning essayist and critic. He’s a frequent speaker at high schools and colleges. His work has appeared in The New York Times, The Atlantic, Harper’s, The American Scholar, and many other publications. He taught English at Yale and Columbia before becoming a full-time writer in 2008. Bill’s new book is The Death of the Artist: How Creators Are Struggling to Survive in the Age of Billionaires and Big Tech.

11am PT / 2pm ET (30-min session)

So, you want to be an artist...

You want to pursue work in the visual arts. It’s not enough to be skilled in your chosen art. You have to be a good communicator and business person. Anne Kullaf is a professional fine artist and instructor. She will give a brief presentation followed by Q&A.

Anne Kullaf is a professional fine artist and instructor. She has had a highly diverse career as a designer, entrepreneur and visual artist. Anne has taught workshops at Princeton University Art Museum, Edward Hopper House, Visual Arts Center of New Jersey, and Bryant Park in New York City.

1pm PT / 4pm ET (30-min session)

Arts portfolio: Building an online home so your work is seen and sold

You can get a jump on longtime artists who live on rented land. “Owning” cyber real estate means having an online home that you control. Art Morehead is a professional artist and art marketer. He will give a brief presentation followed by Q&A.

Art Morehead first experienced a paint brush at 6 years old. Decades later, he’s still a curious child when it comes to artistic forms. In recent years, Art discovered a passion for teaching. He helps young people see the power of owning cyber real estate - an online home. Art publishes The Creatives Daily as a way to elevate working artists.
