While I feel the group show was a great success - I'm a little burned out with Meetup and will be taking some time off. However, we have loads of great folks who will continue to post Arts events and information.
As much as I love being in charge of stuff... (HA! The feeling of POWER is a waning lust...) I want to remind EVERY member that you are invited to post events, shows, tours, films, calls for submissions, and/or a frickin dinner party if you want - anything related to art or social networking for artists - to the Art's New Mexico web site.
When I took over admin on this group I did so because I enjoyed the tremendous creative and cooperative spirit of the members (then about 60 or so...) and while we have more than doubled that now, it seems the larger the group becomes, the less participation on thatfront - so I've decided to change the web protocol to allow ANYONE who is a member to post as an event organizer without pre-approval. (this privilege will be withdrawn on an individual or group basis if things get out-of-hand, like posting for non-arts related events, or personal items for sale, over-promoting, spam, fraud, etc.)
THIS IS YOUR GROUP! Please use it to post fun stuff like arts classes, show openings, artist calls, film screenings, poetry readings (in moderation...;-) free or low cost local music shows, etc, etc. Arts NM is open to you.
THE ONLY THING I ASK IS to please go carefully through ALL the categories when creating the eventpost and be clear for folks about ALL the details. Include location, time, notes and details. If you want to get more participation, insert a photo or graphic image for your event. While doing this, please scroll downto the section entitled "Email Settings" and UNCHECK the "Email organizers when member RSVPs" box - this eliminates a lot of what I consider unnecessary emails.
So... have at it. Enjoy, enhance, enliven!
