Information requested from artists is kept up-to-date on https://cagacartbank.ca/instructions-for-artist-submissions/ & should serve as Curators “master copy”. If we want to change “rules or procedures” we should do it directly on that copy.
Entering art works as “Blog Posts”:
Looking at what we’ve done so far, I’m suggesting we follow this template – at least as a starting point – to offer a consistent look & feel for visitors.
- The “Title” field (which is what shows up on the “Art Works” page) will be left blank or used to indicate “Sold” or “On Loan”
- The image will be a jpg file no wider than 500 pixels & uploaded to the “Media” library and then inserted on the page using the “add” button.
As for the information to be entered below the image, this format is proposed:
Simply bold the line titles, followed by a semicolon & do it the same for all entries – this should keep a consistent look.
- Artist: first name, last name
- Title: xxxxx
- Medium: specifics (i.e.: acrylic on canvas)
- Size: cm (inches)
- Framed or Not Framed
Tag by category (select from drop-down menu on the right) & by artist name — create new name (last, first name).
Hang Tags – about every six months (or whatever is decided) we’ll ask artists to review their works & request they refresh their selections within a short time frame. After that, we’ll have tags made up for all new pieces, artists will pick them up & retain for use throughout the year.
