As one of a number of changes I am making to the site I am now looking for submissions for the blog from readers who would like to share a lesser known artist. The volume of suggestions I receive for the site, and the passion with which people talk about artists they love, makes allowing these messages a wider audience an obvious choice.
A short piece of writing is all that is required. That could be a brief overview or biography, a personal piece of writing on why an artist appeals to you, or the story of an encounter with their work. I would especially like to hear about artists from areas which are under-represented here (China, South America and the Middle East to name a few.) Don't worry about images, I can research those. Email me to discuss - artinconnu at gmail dot com.
The first post in this series will be published later this month.
