Studio Tour 2014:
Cris is meeting with Sheri Cross and/or Sue Young of the
Jay/Wilmington area this week. They are willing to help
with the Studio Tour in some capacity. The committee is
considering changing the tour guide format and combining
it with an ArtWorks brochure that will include all of
We have 30 Professional Members and 11 Supporting, with
a few more expected to come in. With this revenue,
Sandra presented an outline for the 2014 Advertising
budget. ArtWorks will be able to advertise more this
year. Distribution with the North Country Brochure
Company was discussed and Larry will contact them to get
more details on number units that would be serviced and
how many brochures ArtWorks would need for their supply.
Possible Donation Opportunity with a Brewer’s Guild that
is looking to expand in our area. Artwork would be used
as incentive for donors to invest and artists would get
advertising on their site. More info to come.
We still have many ArtWorks brochures, please distribute
if you can. They are stored at Artist Guild
Option this year of having a space/tent which would
include insurance and an opportunity for artists to sell
their work. Would be Lake Flower location, Saturdays
9-2. Artists would sign up for the day/s they can
be there. Artists would need their own sales tax numbers
and may want to have a device for handling payment or
accept Cash/check only. Pendragon also interested in
having a presence for advertising and selling tickets.
ArtWorks would pay the $250 seasonal fee so that
ArtWorks professional members could use the tent. Cris
will talk with artists about making commitments to be at
the tent before we make a final decision. David thought
Pendragon would benefit from this opportunity and that
they could provide and set up the tent on most of the
Expanding ArtWorks’ Online Presence:
Courtney Miller is willing to help us expand our online
opportunities (including and beyond Facebook) to promote
our organization. Sandy will talk with Courtney about
working on this.
