The time has come to get the ball rolling for our 2nd annual “artseen studio tour” here in Frisco. This year’s tour will be Saturday, October 20 (10:00am – 5:00pm) and Sunday, October 21 (1:00pm – 5:00pm).
VAGF has teamed with Frisco Arts Association and will have tables available at the Black Box Theatre. We will also have a table for children’s art. Please let us know if you want to have a table at the Black Box for the ArtTour.
Here’s what you need to do:
1. Go to the following link to sign up: http://artseenhere.com/studio-tour-2012/studio-tour-sign-up/) – It is password protected. The password is: studiotour2012.
2. We will then invoice you for $50 via PayPal — that is the fee for each participating artist and merchant. This will cover the cost for printing high-quality tri-fold maps, yard signs, advertising posters, postcards, etc., and also print advertising in local papers. In addition, you will have a bio, photos and a link to your site on www.artseenhere.com for almost a year.
3. Send me a high-quality JPEG image of your art to be used in all promotional materials. This image should be eye-catching and create interest in your art. People quickly make their decisions on which artists to see by looking at your JPEG. Choose a high-contrast image with good quality that is typical of your work.
4. Send me an artist statement and bio. Images and bio/artist statement should be sent to this e-mail address. (See examples atwww.artseenhere.com/studiotour2011.)
