Art! Art! And more Art!

Greetings All,
This past weekend I spent having a wonderful time viewing art, hanging out with a friend and eating some great food. Sunday I went to Concordia University's Ferguson Art Gallery, Kretzmann Hall, 7400 Augusta St., River Forest, IL. Antiques and Heirlooms, works by Paul S. Benjamin (below). The exhibit runs until February 14, 2010 and is a must see.

Saturday night was spent at Murphy-Hill Gallery, Energy Art Salon is their current show. There are artists from all across the globe involved in this show and to name a few are Alpha Bruton, John Vega, Bill Hill, and Adam Scott Miller to name a few. The venue runs until February 25th. Do check the link for more information.

I'd Rather Be In The Studio

Artists: How would you like to sell more art?

If you could use some fresh and practical ideas for marketing your art,
check this out.

Alyson B. Stanfield, author of “I’d Rather Be in the Studio! The
Artist’s No-Excuse Guide to Self-Promotion,” is coming to Wisconsin in
early March to help us get a groove on our marketing.



March 9-10, 2010

Siena Center, Racine, WI

**Sign up by February 12 and get a bonus gift from Alyson!

During these two days, you’ll learn

• How to write a better artist statement that connects with your audience

• How to organize and expand your mailing list

• The tragic mistakes artists make on websites and blogs (and how to
fix them)

• Email secrets that produce results

• How to increase traffic to your website and blog

• How to build your online presence with Facebook and Twitter without
becoming a slave to your computer

And it’s only $100! Alyson says this is a crazy low price, so you should
probably grab it while you can.

Two full days of ideas, examples, and motivation to help you get your
art out of the studio and in front of people who can see it and buy it.
AND, you’re going to leave with an action plan.

Get the details and register (by February 12 to get the bonus!)

And help us fill the room by sharing this information with other
artists. We’re already at 2/3 capacity!

The accommodations at the Siena Center are a down right bargain too, so this is an amazing opportunity to fit our tight recession budgets, too.
