Dear Artists, Hope this message finds you well. To those who participated in Art at the Mart this summer, thank you for your support! This notice is going out to anyone who has showed an interest in a local artist group here in the Manahawkin/LBI area. We'd like to continue offering opportunities and are very excited to announce that the Art at the Mart facebook page has been renamed Art Enquirer. Art Enquirer is about to become a virtual co-op for local artists, an online space to exhibit and market your artwork. "Where Enquiring minds go for Breaking news from the artworld, Personal in-depth interviews with local artists, Artwork and merchandise for sale" This is a great opportunity to get you and your artwork seen and heard by the worldwide web community.
Here's how it works: Artists will be featured on the facebook page for a set period of time. This will include sponsored ads with your artwork. Images of your work will be featured along with an in-depth personal interview about you and your work as well as any other information you would like to include. The information and images will be stored in the Artist Registry which will be accessible to the public at any time. Potential buyers, curators and galleries will be able to access the registry. Simply submit 10-20 jpeg images with info. about each image, artist statement or bio. or any relevant information including awards, articles or press, any links to web sites or online shops, and a filled out questionnaire that will be posted as your interview. The membership fee is $25 and will be used to maintain the site as well as sponsored online advertising. The more members we have, the more advertising we'll
do, and the more likes our page gets, the more visitors. That means more exposure for you and your artwork! We think Art Enquirer is about to become a really cool site that will get a lot of attention! Please let us know if you're interested. The first artist will be featured starting October 6th. Right now our page has 151 likes, let's see how many
more we can get! Looking forward to hearing back from you, Martha Kremer and Samantha Palmeri. email@example.com
