I struggled with this month’s newsletter because everything seems to be in the works rather than finished. I am doing a lot of business networking and education this month and a lot less art (has to happen every once in a while.) I am preparing for this summer’s festivals and hoping to get applications out as soon as they are available. On the art side of things, I am currently expanding my listings on Etsy and Zazzle with work to come on CafePress and ImageKind.
The website is continuing to be updated, though the new pages I had hoped to get up fell behind due to technical updates that were necessary. On that note, if anyone is experiencing technical problems with the site, like overlapping text for example, please let me know so that I can correct the issue.
Please check out the calendar this month. There are a lot of networking opportunities.
A Gallery-Free Art Exhibit
This spring I will be holding an Art Exhibit for me, and possibly other artists if there is interest. This exhibit will not be in a gallery but in a public meeting place and will be open to all who wish to attend. Though this project is still in the planning stages, I wanted to give my loyal readers a heads up.
In addition, if anyone has suggestions on venues or fellow artists who would be interested please pass along the information.
The internet is where people go to find information and services. A lot of people are relying on community review sites such as Yelp to help them make decisions. “Yelp is the fun and easy way to find, review and talk about what's great (and not so great) in your world. You already know that asking friends is the best way to find restaurants, dentists, hairstylists, and anything local. Yelp makes it fast and easy by collecting and organizing your friends' recommendations in one convenient place.”
If you have a free minute and the inclination, I would appreciate it if any customers would review Ardent Photography for this site and help get the word out.
