As someone deeply ingrained in the art world, I’ve seen firsthand how technology can be a game-changer. I witnessed the advent of the internet, online galleries, and social media. Today, I want to talk about AI, a tool reshaping how we, as artists and gallery owners, approach the creative and business aspects of art.
I’ve always tried to stay on point with new technologies that can help us better serve artists and our clientele, and when I first saw AI gaining momentum, I knew it merited exploration.
AI as a Helpful Assistant
My journey with generative AI began as an experiment, a foray into the unknown. I started viewing AI as a helpful assistant, a tool to enhance my creative output and efficiency. I learned quickly that AI isn’t a magician that conjures up content from thin air. Instead, it’s a collaborator that needs guidance – your ideas, style cues, and creativity. And when provided with these, it can assist remarkably well.
I’ve used AI in the gallery to craft compelling social media ads, brainstorm email subject lines, and draft client emails. The results? A more streamlined process and messages that still carry my voice and thoughts, albeit refined with AI’s efficiency.
I’ve been so pleased with the results that I wanted to share the AI abilities that have streamlined our business with artists.
Introducing Theobot: A Tailored AI Tool for Artists
I’m thrilled to introduce you to Theobot.ai – an AI writing tool we’ve been developing specifically for artists. This tool encapsulates everything we’ve learned about AI over the past two years. It’s designed to help artists write more effectively in a simple, clean, and straightforward interface, and I’m excited by what it can do.
Theobot is exceptional at analyzing and describing the artwork. Watching it interpret an image and articulate a description is almost like witnessing magic. One user shared with me,
I have three friends […] with art and technical writing backgrounds. The two that got back to me both thought the write-up gave them a new and more informed perspective of the work. What more could I want? I realized that I have been doing geometric abstraction since 1973 and when working in the media […] a lot of what I do is spontaneous and relies on this 50 year background[.] So when I read what the AI says about the piece I was somewhat amazed. It made me feel like AI knew why I constructed the pieces and the color. This process has become so innate to me that I now realize that I could not explain it until Theobot did.”
But Theobot’s prowess doesn’t end there. It’s also a whiz at brainstorming titles, crafting website descriptions, and composing blog posts and email newsletters. Need help responding to emails or writing your artist’s statement and biography? Theobot has got you covered.
