I have bagged MY web

I am an artist on and also committee member for an Artisan Trail called Art on the EDGE.  We also host meet-ups to benefit all involved with the arts in our County and include some art friends in the surrounding counties.  This past session was called 'Show Stoppers and Marketing Basics'  This session focused on tackling art show and festival applications including a database of local shows, what jurors look for from an applicant, as well as setting up a vendor booth that will wow potential buyers.

Topics  also included the basics of marketing artwork successfully using web-based social media, website builders, and other marketing strategies. In addition, Ta Brant from the PA Wilds Artisan Initiative will present a talk on the initiative and how it can benefit regional artists.

Social media is the topic I discussed showing my list of networking sites.  In the Bag the Web site I have only listed the more substantial in my list of many sites I have used throughout the last 10 years.   It was great giving this talk for it made me  really look at my ever growing mass of social sites and break it down to the best or most geared towards my needs to grow as an art business.

The guest speakers included:
Bobbi Mennetti Shaffer on show basics
Marilyn Blackmore director of Art in the Wilds  what shows are looking for
ME Stephanie Distler 'social media'
Ta Brant Pennsylvania Wilds Artisan Initiative
Abbi Peters on setting up a drag and drop website

new in the gallery

new in the gallery, originally uploaded by mossnbeads.

I have been in a creating frenzy lately with new ideas, old UFOs, commissions, Christmas and restocking some old faves.
The Medieval Illuminations are going to be a big item this year and I also love the new rings with vintage buttons all over the gallery.

Necklace creating in the gallery

A sterling silver rosary wrapped necklace called 'Dancing Queen' :)
I made a copper version a couple of weeks back and needed to make one out of silver after the commission piece for a wedding.
I love these beads!
The fire-polished faceted beads are other worldly, love them!

The gallery is listed on the visitpa site

Flemish House Art Gallery and Studio
The Gallery and Studio were established 2 ½ years ago featuring regional artists, rotating featured artists, mix media work, artisan jewelry, beading and jewelry supplies, classes and retreats covering many techniques. Now the gallery is listed as a Pennsylvania Wilds Trail Partner and is a participating retail facility. Being part of the Pennsylvania Wilds, as a trail partner, the gallery has access to a variety of juried work from Pennsylvania artists and will continue to grow. Another facet is the student/teacher involvement with an annual district art show, individual features and open mic nights in the Coffee Shop.
