Web and Social Media Strategies for Visual Artists


Image of empty theatre in Belmullet Arts centreI’ll be visiting Co.Mayo this Saturday to take part in ‘Web and Social Media Strategies for Visual Artists‘, a Mayo Artists’ Network event delivered in collaboration with Visual Artists Ireland.

Along with Mary Carty, who’ll be talking about Social Media promotion for artists, I’ll be talking about using a website as a promotional tool and giving examples of artists who have made good use of theirs (and how!).

It will also be my first chance to visit Belmullet since I was a child, many of my forebears hail from here, and I’m looking forward to seeing the Aras Inis Gluaire Arts Centre.

Over 3 hours or so we registered her domain-name, set up hosting, installed a content management system, styled the site and uploaded her content. All before lunch!

Have a look at the results here:

Site Update for Angela Fulcher

Angela Fulcher Indexhibit site

Angela Fulcher Indexhibit site

I recently updated the website of Visual Artist Angela Fulcher. She had an existing Indexhibit based site, and wanted a style tweek, improve typography, and integrate her content and galleries. I’ve used Indexhibit in the past, it’s a great tool for artists because of it’s straight-forward concentration on image galleries over other elements. Because it’s a CMS (content management system) you can upload new content, galleries, texts etc really easily. While the default style is still pretty nice, it’s possible to personalise the site with CSS, and a bit of PHP hacking.

If you’re looking for an Indexhibit site, I can set one up for you with an Artist-makers Online hosting plan, and can style it to your taste too. Just drop me a line.

Artistmakers website for Orla Whelan

Orla Whelan Artist's Portfolio

Orla Whelan Artist’s Portfolio

Orla Whelan is a contemporary Irish artist. Her work deals primarily with the exploration and representation of subjectivity. Informed by personal experience, literature and art history, her work attempts to tease out the desire and compulsion to investigate the self, and its condition. Taking shared human experience as a departure point, she intuitively investigates the fields of memory, perception and representation.

See her new site here.

Hopeful Structures


In 2009, Dublin City Council Arts office launched a new pilot initiative in the Red Stables Artists Studios (with the kind assistance of The Arts Council), to commission an emerging curator to plan and devise an outdoor exhibition of temporary artworks for Saint Anne’s Park.

For this year’s project invited curator, Sally Timmons has selected two artists to consider the notion of a folly (defined as an ornamental structure or building, whose creation reflects a whimsical inclination on the part of the builder). With this in mind, the artists Mark Clare and Fionnuala Hanahoe have developed artworks that will provide a physical and visual interference within the environs of the park, holding intrigue as visually stimulating yet seemingly futile functional structures.

The last two days of the project are this weekend, Saturday and Sunday from 12pm until 5pm. A closing reception for the project, Hopeful Structures will take place at The Red Stables Artists Studios in Saint Annes Park, Dublin from 4 – 6 pm this coming Saturday 3rd July

Eugene O’Malley’s new artists site!


Stonemason, sculptor and painter Eugene O’Malley has built his new artist’s website with Artist-makers Online. From his artist’s statement: ‘I attempt to make work resembling the familiar sculptural forms of every day life and work. The pieces are a combination of organic and constructed forms with a strong emphasis on physical attributes such as its spatial relationships, weight and volume. I am intrigued by how a piece inhabits space, how it relates to where it sits…’.

His homepage is at

  • The Printmakers Gallery
