Since January, the TRAG board has been in discussions about how to offer TRAG artists more opportunities to promote their art. You can now show up to 10 pieces of your art on TRAG’s website, have links to your own site and social media to market yourselves, and a short form for interested buyers to contact you. This new program will not only highlight the TRAG website with beautiful artwork but will promote our Artists as well. Please follow the instructions below to be a part of this exciting opportunity.
Starting with your gallery
- If you would like to have your own gallery on the TRAG website, click here: https://www.threeriversartistguild.com/trag-artists/?wpbdp_view=submit_listing.
- You will be asked to register with the website first. Just enter the username and email address and submit the registration form. The website will send you an automatic email with the link to reset the password.
Note: your profile on the website, which is referenced in the the password reset email (https://www.threeriversartistguild.com/wp-login.php), is only to give you an option to change the username, email, or password if you need to. You can ignore everything else you see there.
- Once your password is reset, go back to https://www.threeriversartistguild.com/trag-artists/?wpbdp_view=submit_listing to create your gallery.
All artist galleries are categorized by a primary medium. If you work in more than one, put the rest under “Tags” when you create the gallery. Tags don’t require capitalization, punctuation, or hash (#) symbols in front of them. Keep them as short as possible.
If you don’t want to publish a phone number or any other contact info, leave it blank, and it will not show on your gallery page.
As you add images to your gallery, successfully uploaded images will show as thumbnails with a text field for artwork details next to it. You can upload more than one image at once.
Editing your gallery
If you are still logged in, there will be the “Edit” button either under your gallery at https://www.threeriversartistguild.com/trag-artists/ or under your name in your gallery which will have a link similar to https://www.threeriversartistguild.com/trag-artists/YOUR-NAME/ (replace YOUR-NAME with your actual first and last name and a hyphen between them). Click it, and you will see the same form you used to create the gallery. Everything in it will be editable.
If you are logged out, go https://www.threeriversartistguild.com/trag-artists/?wpbdp_view=login, log in, and you will be taken to the list of galleries at https://www.threeriversartistguild.com/trag-artists/. You can find your galley under your chosen category at the top of the page or go to your gallery at https://www.threeriversartistguild.com/trag-artists/YOUR-NAME/.
If you have any trouble with setting up or editing your gallery, contact Yelena Shabrova at firstname.lastname@example.org.
