ArtCall is a web-based system for exhibitors.
ArtCall gives artists the
ability to enter juried shows completely on-line. Artist contact
information, artwork descriptions and digital photos are uploaded directly by
the artist into the exhibit database by filling out simple web-based forms.
The system can also accommodate registration payment via PayPal or third party
Exhibit organizers can then access all the artist and artwork data directly via the web-based database. Administrators can edit the artist and
artwork data as needed. Artist data can be exported directly from the system to
prepare letters of acceptance and rejection.
ArtCall also provides an on-line system for jurying the
entered artwork. Jurors, from any location can view the artwork photos, read the
artist statements, make private comments, and then vote. The system provides a
private set of ballots for each juror for each piece. Administrators can see the
final tally and the number of votes cast for each work.
Artists no longer need to mail-in entries or burn CDs. This
saves time for the artist and also the cost of postage and elapsed time to mail.
The show administrators now have all of the artist contact information and all
artwork data already put into a database. So there is no data entry after
receiving the registrations.
For jurying, there is no need to consolidate all the photos
from various CDs and set-up a venue for the jurors to review the photos. The
high-resolution photos and artist statements are already directly available
on-line in the system. This saves manpower for show administrators and travel
costs for jurors.
