Art Blog: HELP From My Friends?

“Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends,
Mmm I get high with a little help from my friends,
Oh, I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends”
With A Little Help From My Friends
The Beatles

OK. Where do I start? I got this idea. I wanted to have a series of online art shows during 2010. I created the Git Outta My Face website. I put up a prospectus. It pretty much went unnoticed. I was bummed out but I am not a quitter. I am trying it again. I am promoting it in a different way. The new deadline is January 15, 2010. It costs nothing to submit your work.

PLEASE participate or help me find artists who are interested!

My motivation is simple. I want to have five online shows with different themes during the coming year. I think it would be fun. It offers artists another place to show their work. Since each artist will have their own exhibition page with their information, it will offer a way for viewers to be redirected to the artist’s websites. Also, the shows will allow artists to meet new, unfamiliar artists.

Now here comes the “help from my friends” part. I need help promoting the first show “GO AWAY!” I am trying to do something for artists, but I can’t do it alone. This is why I am asking for help from you, my friends. If you have a blog, use Twitter, Facebook, or any other online forums, I would appreciate it if you would mention the show and encourage artists to participate. I would really appreciate any and all help from any of you. I am trying to do something positive and fun for artists. I think this is a win/win situation.

Thanks SO MUCH in advance to all who help me with this! :-)

I am so glad you changed the deadline because as much as I wanted to do Get outta my face I was too distracted with ill health, travel, holidays.

As for organizing exhibits online or otherwise, oh boy I feel your frustration.

I just want to get this online gallery up and running. This first show is just the beginning. I just hope people submit. It is just a fun thing to do. I think my "Git Outta My Face" online gallery will be a great thing. I just have to get people to hop on the bandwagon. It will be a positive thing.
P.S. I love your new blog background!! I might look into doing something like that for my blog too. :-)

I like the idea of the online shows, and I would participate but don't have a piece that works for the theme. But I will link from my blog in any case. I hope it goes swimmingly.

Sheree Rensel said...

Sorry you can't participate, but if you can promote the link, that is good too!! Thank you!!!!!! :-)
