Are you going to spam me?

My question isn’t here. Can you help me?
Of course. Feel free to shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I submit my work for Artsicle?
Yes! We'd love to have you. We're adding new artists to the site every week. It is free to join as an artist and you can use the link below to start your profile.
How do communities work?
Our network of communities helps visitors navigate the site and discover new artwork they might enjoy. The network structure means every artist is seen by more visitors, versus on an isolated portfolio page.
Communities also provide context about you and your work - such as what medium you use, where you work, a residency you attended, or an organization you support. We've found this context helps visitors form a stronger connection with your work.
How is it free?
Artsicle has a big vision to help everyone discover today's talented artists. We believe every artist should have access to what we're building, so we're committed to keeping the service free for artists forever. That means no cost to join or to add artworks, and no commission.
And remember, we're in beta so some things may not work quite as expected. Please let us know your feedback!
What is included in an artist profile?
We make creating your profile simple, so you can add as much or as little information as you like. You can add as many artworks as you like, with space for details on the medium, framing, price, etc. We also have fields for your artist statement, biography, CV, and contact information.
