Art Ascent is a new art and literature journal that can be viewed in two forms, digital (free) or
paper($18.) I downloaded my free copy this morning. This publication is interesting because it's interactive. They hold competitions where artist enter for a fee and winners receive small cash awards. Better than the cash award is the media exposure the journal provides.
It seems to me that the competitions are really on line, and printed, juried art shows. Which I personally think is genius! Finding an audience for your artwork is not always easy. Here is a way to get your work viewed by the world. The local art center in my county is having a hard time drawing audiences to shows. The artists in the shows attend the opening night and they drag along a few friends and family members. Getting the general public to attend these opening nights is next to impossible.
People love to sit in front of screens, television, smart phones and computers, Art Ascent is now showcasing the arts on a screen near you!
