Artists Sunday, following Black Friday, puts out call for participants before Nov. 29

The movement has a website that offers a free directory of artists and art organizations that participate

The following is from a press release from Artists Sunday

Artists Sunday— a new movement to drive art sales and support the livelihoods of millions of U.S. artists, artisans and craftspeople— will premiere Nov. 29.

Artists Sunday aims to piggyback off the well-known holiday shopping-focused days of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, to make the Sunday after Thanksgiving the most profitable day of the year for artists.

More than 100 local arts agencies, cities, states, counties, and nonprofit organizations, representing thousands of artists across the country, have already joined the nationwide alliance. Additionally, more than 500 artists, artisans, and craftspeople have signed up directly, with more joining daily.

How Artists Can Participate

Art, it’s been said, is in the eye of the beholder. In that spirit, Artists Sunday includes a full spectrum of artists from painting, sculpture, and photography to jewelry, pottery, and a range of handcrafted items that can be both practical and beautiful.

Artists, artisans, and craftspeople can sign up for a free listing in the Artists Sunday directory, which helps consumers find artists by name, type of work and city, state and country. Links to each artist’s Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter accounts are included in the listings.

Participating artists get access to a comprehensive toolkit that offers up advice and templates to support marketing, and public relations efforts, as well as e-commerce tips to improve and accelerate the sales process.

Opportunities for Arts Organizations

For many of the more than 100 state and local organizations that have signed on as partners, Artists Sunday could not have come at a better time as they work to help local artists navigate the challenges of Covid-19.

For instance, the Howard County Arts Council in Maryland was scrambling after it had to cancel its annual holiday art sale that generated significant revenue for local artists. Now, the nonprofit is pivoting to make Artists Sunday the anchor for a two-week virtual event in which will feature and promote the works of one artist each day.

Non-commercial organizations that support artists are welcome to join the Artists Sunday Partners program for free. Qualifying organizations include local arts districts, state agencies, counties, chambers of commerce, national organizations, associations, municipalities, and non-profit community groups across the country.
