As an artist you can create a biography of yourself and upload a photo as well. This information is visible to visitors to your personal gallery. It can also be used by art show judges when they evaluate your entries for acceptance.
When your work is displayed in an art show run on Gallery 247, visitors can scan your artwork's label with their smart phone to get instant access to your bio and artist notes about that particular artwork.
Prizes and awards that you receive are automatically appended to your bio. Even if you have sold your work, a prospective purchaser can click on the prize description to view the actual work that won that prize.
