Tuesday Artist Meet Up

Artist friends,  please join us in January at our Tuesday Artist Meet Up group!  (location tbd) Local artists meet the first Tuesday of each month for coffee and shop talk often at a local coffee shop or at one of our studios.  Discussions are open and revolve around business issues like selling art in our area, social media, shipping, shows, etc.  We break up @11.  We have a facebook group too where we can post questions to each other and good articles we find, etc., throughout the  month.  Please send me an email if you want to be on the email list/FB group. Our local artists are so generous! I’ve really enjoyed getting to know everyone and learning and sharing.
