PoetsArtists is a platform uniting artists, authors, art collectors, galleries and other art affiliated members. Their mission is to ignite creativity and connect an already strong community with further artistic and literary opportunities. They publish issues 8 to 12 times a year focusing on Contemporary Figurative Realism, Portraiture, and Poetry. Magazine and catalogs are available in both a digital and printed format. PoetsArtists has a growing artist membership and creates numerous exhibitions for their member base covering a wide variety of themes. They have partnered with the Zhou B Art Center to bring exhibitions curated by prominent collectors such as Visions of Venus/Venus’ Visions curated by Dr. Elaine Melotti Schmidt and virtual exhibitions such as Glorious Color curated by Lorena Kloosterboer. This year they launched the first yearly PAINTING THE FIGURE NOW at the Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art and initiated a new biennial International Portrait Award starting in 2019 also at the Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art.
