What is Kawartha Artists?
Peterborough County and the City of Kawartha Lakes have a vibrant art community full of makers and creators of all types. The problem? There are so many artists, galleries, events and more that it’s hard to know just how lively the artist community is. The purpose of Kawartha Artists is to amalgamate all of the local artists, galleries and events into one website – with links to more information – making it easier for everyone to explore our community.
How Does It Work?
Kawartha Artists is a community that is optimized for search engines, ensuring that when someone searches for you, they will find you, your work, and all the contact information you want them to see.
Be sure to include one image of yourself, working in your studio or with one of your pieces and the category or categories of media you would like to be listed in.
Please also include your name, address, phone number, email address, website address, and social media links – as much or as little contact information as you would like.
Kawartha Artists will also build awareness for your work / gallery / event on our social media channels (Facebook/Instagram).
We will be featuring / posting / sharing about our artists, upcoming events on our channels and website.
What does “optimized for search engines” mean?
Search Engine Optimization – SEO – is the work of ensuring that when someone searches for relevant content in Google or Bing(!) or other search engines, they find it.
Is your website optimized for SEO? are you losing clients because they cannot find you?
The purpose of this site is to amalgamate all of Peterborough County and the City of Kawartha Lake’s artists, galleries and events into one site – with links to more information. The Kawartha Artists website will be optimized for search engines, ensuring that when someone searches for you, they will find you, and all of your contact information.
What is Google Analytics?
Google Analytics tracks how many people have viewed this website, which pages they visited and where they went after this site.
Do I Need a Website to Join?
You don’t! Kawartha Artists can act as your website. No need to learn how to code, hire someone to create your own website, or learn more digital marketing jargon. You’re an artist, your time should be spent creating.
Is the Kawartha Artists community beneficial if I already have a website?
Your website is a great piece of information to add to your Kawartha Artists profile page.
Is kawarthaartists.ca a Juried Site?
Yes. Exhibiting artists will be reviewed by our panel of “jurors” or judges prior to being added to this site. These judges are fellow artists and knowledgable members of the art community — such as museum curators and gallery owners — selected by Kawartha Artists.
I’m an Artist but I Don’t Live in the Kawarthas, can I still Join?
Although the Kawartha Artists community is currently focused on artists living and creating in Peterborough County and the City of Kawartha Lakes, we will be expanding. We encourage you to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
