OUR COMMUNITY ARTIST WEBSITE ROUND-UP
We are creating a roundup of websites belonging to artists in our community!
By Karina Vahitova
The website is one of the most important internet tools an independent artist can wield. This tool connects artists to their communities and deepens that connection by enabling communication between artist and audience. Websites allow artists and their work, voice, and vision to operate in the world even when the artist is not physically present. Websites are not just databases — they tell stories and collect documentation and ephemera.
Last week, we put out a call for artist websites to those on our weekly mailing list and received a gushing response of folks sharing their websites, their experiences with our resources, and their general struggles as independent artists today. We've decided to publish them here so artists in our community can get to know one another's work, draw inspiration from each other, and connect further.
We will be updating this page in the coming months to continue including the websites of more artists in our community, but for now, it is my pleasure to share with you the first installment of our artist website roundup.
