ENTRIES FOR THE 2012 COLLECTION ARE BEING ACCEPTED NOW!
Art Buzz, the book, is an annual, full-color, fine quality, large (10" x 10") format, hardcover publication that is scheduled for release in January of each year with a vigorous distribution plan targeted directly to the International Fine Art Community. Truly, this is a beautiful book, not a magazine. Each volume of Art Buzz will be available to order directly from Art Buzz and additional copies will be distributed directly to active art dealers and collectors in the United States and other parts of the world.
The deadline for entries is September 30, 2012 (entries in by 6/15/12 discounted).

All the various mediums will be accepted such as: painting (oils & acrylics, etc.), drawing, graphic art, photography (includes digital), mixed media, fiber, print making, sculpture, glass, metal, pottery, jewelry, etc. (Sorry, no video art) However, only one medium per entry form but as many images of your work, as you choose to submit, for that medium.
