Here is another page online to direct people to. It’s American Style online magazine where POP Gallery in Gloucester is featured. Would be good to get people to post comments on the article. More exposure for everyone, especially for the POP Gallery artists.
The page also has a link to vote Gloucester for a Top 25 Arts Destination in the US. Thanks to Kristine for all the leg work and letters/emails and calls she has sent out to promote this and the board and staff for their support. Keep going !
If we can interest editors and writers in major art publication to do reviews on individuals or groups of artists and exhibitions here, that is of greater value and target market for the artists. Many times an inn or hotel may sponsor the writer’s/critic’s overnight stay in return generates a mention in the article or just for the good “word of mouth” extended value. Eateries are also ones who like to sponsor a dining experience for our guests to Gloucester and Cape Ann and lends itself well to experiencing the true working character of our community that we cherish here.
Geo Tourism seems an option people are interested in as well. Discussions on how to create sustainable opportunities for artist to continue their work by ideas such as supporting cultural facilities funding for live/work space and their venues, by defining the very diverse target industries and their market will help to tell the story of their work. It’s the opportunities for, the stories of, the working artists and their art that creates a cultural destination and need for open dialog.
Sounds like seARTS is off to a good and exciting year. The annual meeting and guest speakers addressing opportunities for cultural economic development regarding the community development projects of the City should be well worth all those interested in attending. Public discussion and the artist’s and cultural community’s input to future vision with mutual goals and needs being addressed is the foundation seARTS was built on. I was thrilled to see Susan Silberberg-Robinson name announced as the keynote speaker. Now we’re talking business! Good luck seARTS 2011!
How about a “1% for the Arts” in Gloucester?
