Yesterday when Dave and I were in Grand Rapids marketing the Merizon book, Dr. Larry Gerbens specifically asked me to share this information with you in hopes that you will share with West Michigan 8, GVA members and friends. The book ARMAND MERIZON: His Life and Art, is now selling at the following venues:
WZZM will be coming to GVA on January 22 (Portrait Sketch), so we would like the studio and gallery to look their very best at that time. To that end, we would also like to have the drying racks and thumbtack strips "in use." Please bring in a sketch, painting...whatever you've been working on...to display for their cameras.
Introductory workshop into social media art marketing. We will discuss how to use Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to promote your work and reach out to potential clients. We will review setting up accounts, linking them for easier use, and discussing when you should be using them to gain the most benefit. The workshop will be held January 27 from 3 until 5pm. You will need a smart phone to participate in this workshop. It would be helpful if you have Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram downloaded to your phone already. The cost is $20, due at the start of the workshop.
