Reminder "Art Spaces" submissions
- Reminder "Art Spaces" submissions:
This message has been sent to all those that indicated an interest in participating in this project as well as several art groups. If I reached you in error, please let me know and I will remove you from my address book. Thank you for offering to share your studio and your art with the community.
"Art Spaces" Will be a photo/interview style zine with virtual tours of artists' studios, homes and gardens. Even if you just do your art on the kitchen table or in a separate structure... I want you to share. I will have a set of questions for you to work from and will want 3-7 digital images, including at least ONE of you working IN your space plus a few of your art work.
I will also be accepting articles of ORGANIZATIONAL TIPS especially
artists that work in small spaces or are often on the go. (ie reviews of your favorite traveling art bags, where to find the best deals on unique storage solutions...)
I would also LOVE articles of people whose studios are in
transformational changes... and the WHYS behind the changes.
(pictures of before and after) If you send an article you may also
submit a free ad for your business, website or upcoming gallery show.
Summer 2005: Groovy Gardens: In addition to the above regular articles, will include gardens, no article necessary...just send some pics of your artsy garden spaces. (deadline May 10th, Issue out in Late June)
Fall 2005: Back to School: In addition to the above regular articles, will include workshops, do you teach in your studio? If so how, what, when, where... how does this work with or against your ability to use your studio. (deadline August 10th, Issue out in Late September)
