The new Galleries and Artists Guide will be coming out in November. Take the time NOW to review your artist listing (its FREE!) in the guide or, if you are not listed, write up a listing. Submit your revised or new listing to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also go to galleriesartists.com to submit your artist information. They also are making the guide larger(more like a magazine format) and would like to offer a special ad for individual artists at a discounted rate. I haven’t the details yet, but will get those to you when I get them.
Also, the Galleries and Artists Guide is looking for photos of the Big Bend to put into the new guide. Get details for this at galleriesartists.com or call 432-271-2112.
