NINE dot ARTS is committed to supporting the careers of emerging artists. We know pricing your artwork can be challenging, especially early in your career. This guide explains how art pricing works when NINE dot ARTS purchases your work and resells it to a client. Our process is similar to how galleries earn commissions for the work they do to sell your art.
Our NINE dot ARTS team has selected the 36 artists to participate in the Virtual Portfolio Review. But don’t worry – this is the first of many events to come! Please keep an eye on www.dotfolioart.com for more updates and opportunities.

Seeking feedback on your artwork? Join our FREE virtual portfolio review to get 20 minutes of expert feedback from a NINE dot ARTS curator. Simply share your bio, artist’s statement, questions for the curator, and up to 10 images of your work. We strongly encourage applications from individuals from historically underrepresented backgrounds, and from artists based in the Southeast or Pacific Northwest regions.
What we’re looking for:
- Innovative, original artwork
- Large-scale murals, interior and exterior sculptures, and installation-based art will be prioritized
- Experience working with unique materials
Whether it’s in the public realm or specific to a private development, art elevates the experience of the built environment, providing intrigue and inviting people to become curious about their surroundings.
Earlier this month, NINE dot ARTS CEO Martha Weidmann spoke alongside a handful of other Denver executives at the Colorado Arts Caucus about Arts and the Economy– a topic we get especially excited to talk about!
The Colorado Arts Caucus convenes three to four times each year with the hopes of inspiring arts advocacy by connecting state legislators to local art enthusiasts. We were honored to be part of this month’s session to be able to advocate for artists and share the incredible impact they have in our communities.
The team at NINE dot ARTS is excited to announce a new internship program, designed to engage the next generation of art professionals in using the power of art to transform the average business environment. The program, which will launch in January 2019 with five intern positions supporting all facets of the organization, is designed to provide comprehensive insight and hands-on experience in the art advisory business, while encouraging students across disciplines to explore a career in the arts. Resumes will be accepted on an ongoing basis, with a December 10 deadline to submit resumes to join the inaugural class of Intern Dots.
At NINE dot ARTS, we see art as a tool for making connections and uniting communities far and wide. The businesses we work with, in particular, find that art can connect their locations that might see geography as a cultural barrier. For example, a company’s culture in a Miami office might be very different from one in Seattle – but luckily for many companies, art can function as a unifier.
No matter the size or scope of a project, NINE dot ARTS holds in-depth consultations with each new client to understand the company’s personality and desired creative space. Our goal at the end of a session is to create a “mission statement” and template for the company’s art and the criteria we can use to emulate this. This effort is more than just repeating the same pieces in different locations, however, typically beginning with a base template with flexibility to make slight variations depending on the office location.
On Monday, September 24, the founder of Meow Wolf, Vince Kadlubek, spoke to Denver Startup Week about his vision for Meow Wolf – now and for the future – as it establishes a second location in the Sun Valley neighborhood in Denver. Meow Wolf originated with a vision to create inspiring collaborative spaces for artists, brought to life by an arts and entertainment group in Santa Fe. As Meow Wolf grew, Kadlubek embraced his responsibility as a leader for the artistic community. At #DENStartupWeek, he shared the Meow Wolf story, details about the new location coming to Denver in 2020, and how artists and entrepreneurs can plug in to the new location.
Here are three takeaways from the panel:
Earlier this summer, NINE dot ARTS Associate Curator Arielle Myers had the opportunity to attend Otis College of Art and Design’s first Emerging Curators Retreat. Arielle joined professional curators, artists and thinkers alike on the retreat in Los Angeles to listen in on talks, conversations and presentations from some of the most established curators and artists in the country. The program, which focuses specifically on Los Angeles’ local art scene, aims to attract emerging, talented and diverse individuals looking to advance their artistic and curatorial skills, while allowing them the opportunity to engage with the local art community and advance their careers as curators.
