Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I pay to appear in a book?

The concept of our publications is different from most.

The books are either sold at cost or given for free to selected recipients, so nobody makes money from sales.

We try to achieve the largest possible distribution to a professional audience of galleries, museums, art consultants, interior designers, agencies, collectors, etc. Besides being a beautiful coffee-table artbook, our publications are a promotional tool aiming at advertising the artists in it. This is the reason there is a participation fee.

Why should I appear in this book? What are the benefits?

 

  1. It is a prestigious and professional way to present your work to galleries, collectors, selection committees, juries and potential buyers.
  2. Being included in a high quality publication not only presents your work, but places you within the context of active contemporary artists.
  3. It increases the commercial value of your work.
  4. It provides gallery owners with an effective tool to more easily sell your work and at a better price.

If you really like my art, you must accept me for free!

No artists are accepted for free. No matter how good or famous they are! The book is published for the benefit of the artists. It offers them a valuable tool to promote themselves. It offers a high quality advertising but only to selected artists. Artists who are approved boost their career.

However we do welcome sponsored artists. Many of the participants in our books are sponsored by public organizations, universities, banks, private companies, etc. We offer special presentation for these sponsors in the front part of the book so as to encourage sponsors.

Approved artists who are interested in finding a sponsor can ask us for the sponsorship presentation with helpful information for potential patrons.

How is the book going to help me? Am I going to sell works?

The book is not a selling tool. It is a tool to promote the artist. It opens doors to galleries, it is a great selling tool for galleries and it raises the value of your work. It will help you to sell art to your clients and at higher prices. But you are not going to sell art directly from the book. This is not the purpose of the book.  People who see you in it are forwarded to your online portfolio and you can sell art this way, but you might never find out that these buyers came from the book. The book is meant to promote the artist. It is a very important addition to your resume. If you use it correctly, you will have great results and it can boost your career.

Many galleries, art organizations, art agents , art dealers etc. sponsor their artists to appear in the book. 

When is the application deadline?

There is no general deadline for applications because we close each volume when we complete the maximum number of artists we can accept.

We do though have deadlines for the payment plans that we offer. You can ask the assistant curator that contacted you about these dates. 

Do I pay to submit art for review?

No. Application is free. Only if and after you are approved and the jury selects your specific works for the book,  we will send you the application and you will be asked to pay. You will have the choice to pay in installments.

How do I submit my work?

If you have been invited by an assistant curator, answer back to his/her message attaching images of your works or ask her/him to forward your website link to the jury for approval.

If you found us by yourself send us your website link or  least 5 images by email to info@wwab.us 

If you are approved you will be notified within 3 working days.

Will I see my page before the book is printed?

Yes. Once the book has been produced, our designer will email you proof of your page(s). You will then be able to make adjustments. A proof is sent to the artist in order to review and approve the accuracy of all elements to be published. 

What is the cost of participating at the Metropolitan Gallery Art Museum exhibition in Las Vegas??

The SNFMA is a non-profit organization. The artists have to make a donation as a contribution to the show. This is $175 for 1 artwork, $350 for 2 works and $400 for 3. No more than 3 works can be exhibited by each artist. The artist has to pay shipment cost to and from the museum.

Please note: We have nothing to do with the financial or postal arrangements between the artists and the museum. We only curate this show and select the works. We bear no responsibility for damage or loss of works during shipment or anything else.

Everything must be arranged between the artist and the museum.

We actually contribute financially for this show, where we donate many books that the museum sells and keeps the proceeds.

Visit the Metropolitan Gallery  Las Vegas Art Museum

Where is the museum?

The SNMFA is in the old downtown of Las Vegas. It is located inside the Neonopolis shopping center on the second floor. The building is donated by the owner to the museum.

The new Director Mark Rowland (Joe Palermo, the Founder of the museum passed away in 2014)  and  Lynn and Don Jones  do an excellent job of setting up the shows, have a great buffet for the opening, organize happenings for the opening night and have a professional photographer on hand to shoot the opening and the guests. Each show has a large opening with many visitors and buyers.

Where do you distribute the books?

Our books are distributed for free to selected galleries, interior designers, museums, collectors, curators, and art-lovers worldwide (every year to a different list).

We also hand out many books at international art fairs that we exhibit like Art Expo New York, Red Dot Miami, Spectrum Miami, Art San Diego and other Major Art Fairs

Whenever a new book is released, we do an email campaign to collectors and art professionals with an online link to view the book page by page.

Our current email list consists of over 165,000 email addresses of collectors and art professionals all over the world – galleries, agencies, art dealers and consultants, interior designers and architects, curators and museum executives. This list is growing constantly.

At the same time we do advertise the books on Facebook, Linked In and Twitter.

Below is a list of galleries we sent free copies during the last 3 months. We renew this list  every 3 months. 

Southern Nevada Museum of Fine Arts. This year we donated 400 copies

Metropolitan Gallery Art Museum in Las Vegas   We donate 400 copies from each book every year.

How can I find a sponsor?

How to find a sponsor:

Contact any companies you might know. Small companies are much easier to approach when it is for a small amount of money.

They can be small stores, wineries, real estate agents, etc. Generally it is easier to get a sponsorship from companies where you have personal contacts or friends or – much better – where you are a client or customer! Or it could be a company or person you have done work for – or even your employer! Or they could be a supplier of yours.

When you have managed to set up an appointment to discuss the sponsorship, it is helpful to have your portfolio of your work with you, and also either a sample copy of one of our books or access to a computer where you can show them our website and the links to our books on the site. Potential sponsors need to get a clear idea of exactly what they are paying for – and the benefits for them.

Make it clear that you are not just asking for help! It is an equal exchange. You are asking for something from them and you are offering something important to them!

How do I know you distribute the books as you say?

Besides the social media and email campaigns, the basic distribution of our books are through art fairs like New York Art Expo and Spectrum or Red Dot in Miami during Basel every year. Though these art fairs we give free copies to all the visitors and exhibitors  who want one. You can visit these shows where we have a booth and see by yourself.

If you want to receive our email campaigns, sign up on our mailing list or for Social Media, like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and link with us on Linkedin

 

What are the differences between the 3 books (CM / ICM and IWA) ?

We have 3 different titles and the main differences between them are on the design and look of the book. On International Contemporary Masters, our classic edition and on Current Masters, our modern edition, the artist can choose between half, 1, 2, 4 or 6 pages where we display from 1 to 18 images accordingly. On Important World Artists, our newest and most economic book, we offer quarter page presentations and on presentations of 1 page and more the page will include a short interview.

On all our books, on presentations of 4 pages and more, as well as special presentations, the artists’ page will include a short review by the curator, Despina Tunberg.
