About the Artist Profiles Module

The Artist Directory module allows you to showcase artists living and working within your community. Visually powerful and easy to manage, the Artist Directory is loaded with features and continues to expand as our network members help guide the development of our product. Profiles may include background, contact, work samples, media, residency information, and any number of additional fields that you can define.

List all the people working in your local creative economy or select individuals based on membership status or artistic quality.

Artists can manage their own information from the ‘front end’ user dashboard, while administrators can review, approve and edit those same profiles via the administrative control panel. All submissions require initial approval by the website’s content administrator, though subsequent edits by the artist can be set to bypass the administrative review process. If the bypass option is activated then all listing edits will appear on the website immediately.

An unlimited number of artist categories (and sub-categories) can be added covering artistic discipline, style, medium and other types of your choosing.
