When searching for artists, you have three options. You may search by Artist/Group Name, Media, or Style.
When searching by Artist Name, you may enter as little as one letter. For example, if you simply enter the letter “A” in the “Last Name” field, you will see all artists whose last names begin with “A”. You may type the entire name into the field, but if you spell in incorrectly, you will get no results. Try shortening the name to just the first two or three letters if this happens. If you are searching for an artist group, enter the name of the group into the “Group Name” field and press “Find Group”. (Using the First or Last Name fields will not return the same results.)
When searching by art Media, you may refine your search based on Media the artists work in. To view all media, click the “Check All” button and then click “Art Search”. To see only certain media, select those you wish to see. The search will return all artists who use at least one of the media you selected.
When searching by art Style, you may refine your search based on how the artists categorize their own work. To view all styles, click the “Check All” button and then click “Art Search”. To see only certain styles, select those you wish to see. The search will return all artists who create work in at least one of the styles you selected.
