Review for Artomatic, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Artomatic is one of the best exhibit opportunities in the area. Not only can you show off your work, but by volunteering, you strengthen your ties to other artists in the community. One reason I exhibit at Artomatic is to take advantage of the exposure it gives my work. I paint so people can see my work and buy it, so it would be foolish of me to ignore the tens of thousands of art lovers who visit Artomatic each year. Not only did Artomatic generate some sales for me (in a tough economy), but it generated interest in my work. During the exhibit, the number of visitors to my website nearly doubled, these visitors stayed longer and viewed more pages than normal, and I established relationships with a new crop of clients who are interested in adding my work to their collections. The other reason I exhibit at Artomatic is because as a volunteer, I strengthen ties with old friends and make new ones as well. Unless you take a class or are part of a group that draws or critiques, being an artist can be a lonely occupation. Artomatic gives me an opportunity to share what I do with a like-minded group of people. I am looking forward to this year's exhibit and plan to increase the number of hours I volunteer.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

sales, increased interest in my work, and friendships.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

great!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

run for longer than it currently does each year.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year
