stay up to date on SOS events, by joining the mailing list.
It is a simple way to replace that ‘in-person’ experience that’s impossible in our uncertain times, with something as authentic and unique. We won’t be able to open our physical doors this year, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t invite visitors to see our work, our workspaces, and hear our thoughts about art and art making.
An SOS 2020 artist video can be as simple or as complicated as you wish! The only requirements: it needs to be short—3 minute maximum—and in MP4 (not MOV) format. Talk about your process, laugh into the camera, do a short and strange art video (with your artwork in it!), or all of the above. The purpose is to introduce yourself to the visitors to SOS’s new YouTube Channel.
For more information on how to participate, please visit our new Virtual Gallery information page. You must be a registered SOS 2020 artist to participate.
During the scheduled weekend of Open Studios, May 2-3, we would love for registered SOS 2020 artists to schedule live-streaming gallery visits via Zoom. For information on how to do this, please visit our new Virtual Gallery Visits via Zoom Live Streaming page.
We encourage all artists to update the photos and statements on your SOS profile pages. We have increased the number of profile images from 3 to 4. (Artists who paid for Expanded Web still have 8 images.)
For participating artists, please update your profile by uploading photos and an artist's statement.
For 2020, SOS has increased the number of images that you can display in your profile from 3 to 4. Feel free to log in to your SOS account and upload another image.
If you are an Expanded Web member, you already can display up to 8 images; this will not change.
If you paid for Expanded Web membership in a previous year, but not for SOS 2020, the fourth image from that previous year is now visible in your profile. You may keep it, delete it, or replace it with a new image.
