Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery (LST) is pleased to announce the unveiling of a new logo in honor of our 10th anniversary.  The gallery’s website underwent a complete redesign in 2018, refreshing and upgrading the overall look and feel of the website. However, the main logo was not updated at that time.

Founded in 2010, the year 2020 marks the gallery’s 10th year in existence. To celebrate this milestone, we are unveiling a new logo and developing a refreshed and modern brand identity tied to LST’s mission of identifying and “helping today’s artists market their art” to a worldwide audience.

According to Gallery Director, C. David Hoffman, “It was time for the LST logo to get a new look. We have kept the well-known elements of the gradient blue background but have upgraded the color scheme and incorporated the ‘LST’ acronym into the logo. The result is a sleeker and more contemporary logo relevant to the direction we are taking the gallery.”

As one of the longest running online art galleries and the first to offer “themed” online art competitions and exhibitions, LST already stands apart from its competitors in terms of the benefits of the marketing and promotion provided to its winning artists, the value of its pricing and the quality of its exhibitions. 

As we embark on a new decade, updating and refreshing the LST logo and brand supports the Gallery’s commitment to providing quality and cost effective competition and exhibition opportunities to new and emerging international artists and its mission of finding new and innovative ways of identifying talented artists and helping them to successfully market their works to the art world.

Throughout 2020, the gallery will be continuing to celebrate this milestone anniversary with new and exciting opportunities, promotion and helpful marketing articles for its artists, including a very special anniversary exhibition in June, which is the month the gallery launched.

We would like to take this time to say thank you to all our artists for being such an important part of our online art gallery. We are only as successful as our artists are and we look forward to the continued success of all our LST gallery artists in 2020 and beyond.

 

101 #ART HASHTAGS FOR ARTISTS TO USE IN SOCIAL MEDIASocial Media is now an accepted and effective way for artists to brand, market and sell their artworks.  The main goals for artists when marketing through social media are to increase their reach, create more traffic to their art website and display their art to new audiences.

By employing art-related hashtags, an artist increases their power to reach more interested people.  In 2015, art hashtags will be necessary to help to achieve branding, marketing, and sales goals.

Just what is a hashtag and how can it help my marketing?  Think of a hashtag as a way to categorize and collect posts about a particular subject. A hashtag is the symbol # plus a subject matter word related to your post.  For example, #Art is a well-used hashtag in social media for art-related subjects. If you were to create and post a message about a new art competition or art show, including the hashtag #Art and automatically this post will be shown with all of the other posts that have used the #Art hashtag.

By using a hashtag, you reach your regular followers with your message, and, in addition, you reach the group of people who follow the hashtag #Art.  This hashtag is followed by a very large group of people who are interested in or associated with the art industry. 

Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, Instagram and Pinterest all provide the ability to include hashtags with your posts. The following list of 101 popular art-related hashtags can be used with any of your social media posts.  We suggest you put these hashtags on a spreadsheet, then separate them into groups as appropriate for your post’s subject matter.   From there you can copy and paste that group of # hashtags into your posts.

Here is our list of 101 art related hashtags for artists to use in their social media posts;

#abstract #abstractart #abstractartist #abstractarts #abstracted #abstractexpressionism #abstractexpressionist #abstraction #abstractors #abstractpainting #abstractphoto #abstractphotography #abstracts #acrylic #animation #art #artcall #artcompetitions #artcontest #arte #artfair #artgallery #artinfo #artist #artnews #artshow #artwork #black #blackandwhite #blackwhitephotography #callforart #callforentries #color #colour #creative #drawing #drawings #fineart #graffitiart #grafiti #graphic #graphicdesign #illustration #ink #lightspacetime #markers #model #mono #monoart #monochrome #mural #murals #myart #onlineart #onlineartgallery #onlineartsales #paint #painting #paintings #pencil #photo #photobomb #photobooth #photocollage #photodaily #photoday #photoftheday #photogram #photograph #photographer #photography #photoofday #photooftheweek #photos #photoscape #photoself #photosession #photoshare #photoshoot #photoshoots #photoshop #photoshopped #photoshot #photostudio #phototag #photowall #portrait #portraits #portraiture #selfie #selfportrait #sketch #spray #spraypaint #streetart #streetartistry #streetphotography #urban #wallart #watercolor #watercolour
