Artebella's Call To Artists

We are always taking submissions for consideration as a Vignette or Q&A on our blog. We welcome artists from every medium to submit (including video artists and installation artists). There is no membership or fee required to submit your work. We only ask that artists live with in the state of Kentucky or within a 50 mile radius of the Louisville area—this includes areas of Southern Indiana. We do make exceptions for artists that live outside of the radius, but have exhibited work in the Louisville/Kentucky area. Artists can also submit up to four times a year for consideration (once each quarter of the year).

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the purpose of Artebella?

Artebella seeks to become a destination web site for artists, art collectors, galleries, and businesses to go to for information regarding the Louisville visual art community. Artebella will be an informative blog focusing on select artists in the Louisville and surrounding area, helping to educate the public about their work, career, individual stories, and properly acknowledging these artists for their overall contribution to the cultural landscape, all while exposing them to new prospective buyers and greater opportunities.

What exactly is a Vignette or Q&A?

Vignettes are an expanded version of the traditional Artebella Daily format, which include four or five featured artworks and text of 300-400 words about the artist and the featured work. The Q&A gives the opportunity to hear from the artist in their own words, answering a series of questions about their artwork and career (including featured artworks, studio shots, and a portrait of the artist). 

How do I become a Guest Curator?

Qualified curators and/or experienced writers should contact Managing Editor Keith Waits: to offer a C.V., writing sample, and/or share your idea for material. 

How do I get a Feature?

Features are assigned exclusively by the Editorial Staff and are developed several weeks in advance.

Does the highlighted work have to be for sale exclusively through Artebella?

No. LVA will act as agent for any purchases made through contact with LVA, and receive 40% commission on those purchases, but the work may also be available for purchase through direct contact with the artist of through exhibition.
