BoldBrush Collector is a free daily e-newsletter by Clint Watson, former owner of a national art gallery and current provider of easy artist websites and marketing help through FASO.

BoldBrush Collector provides art collectors with what they need - information:  it puts a daily focus on artists that collectors should know about. We will also feature art collecting resources, tips and commentary.

How Artists and Exhibits are Chosen for BoldBrush Collector


Artists featured in BoldBrush Collector are generally chosen from entries in our art competition. Each award winner in our monthly art competition receives a full solo feature in BoldBrush Collector as part of the award (unless that artist has been featured in the past twelve months).  In addition, we normally select 80-100 "favorites" to be part of the "FAV 15" each month.  Artists for BoldBrush Collector are often chosen from that group, as well.  Occasionally, we will "stumble across" a great artist to feature, but, by far the best way to be considered for BoldBrush Collector is to enter (and place) in our monthly art competitions.


Each Tuesday we send a special exhibits edition of BoldBrush Collector.  The exhibits edition is a list of upcoming art gallery and museum exhibits sorted by state.  The exhibits included are gallery and museum exhibits pulled from artists on Gold or higher plans at our sister service, FASO Artist Websites.  Exhibits and events not held in galleries or museums (such as fairs, festivals, paint outs, workshops, and demonstrations) are not included.  The special edition also features a Sponsored Exhibits section that is available for non-FASO customers (or those on plans lower than Gold) who wish to advertise their exhibit.  Contact us for advertising rates.  Please don't email your exhibit info directly to our staff as we don't have the manpower to enter exhibit info manually - it's really simple to add it in your FASO control panel.

Thank You.
