There are a lot of great people out there in the world who really like to help out artists. I received an e-mail from Connie Mettler, host of an art blog I subscribe to called Art Fair Insiders. Art Fair Insiders is a social networking site for – you guessed it – artists. Info on best craft shows and call for entries nationwide can be found there.
The e-mail, from Cyndi Lavin,Â was to inform artists who use organic materials in their work of an opportunity to be featured on the Bliss Tree site, under the Jewelry and Beading blog. Artists were to send in images and a brief description of their work.
I’m happy to say that I got in!
What is even more satisfying is knowing that there are people out there in the world, like Connie Mettler and Cyndi Lavin, who help get the word out in so many ways and help artists to not starve. My hat, and I do wear many, is off to women like these, who put themselves out there every day to help artists. Thank you, Connie and Cyndi!
