You've signed up for a meetup entitled "Make a Living in the Arts."  Now its time for us to start planning  a group wide art exhibit/fair so that we can actually sell some art!!!  Who's with me.  

This is the first planning meeting so lets pull together and brainstorm to get the ball rolling.  Looking forward to seeing you.

    Hi Group!!!

    I hope you are having an Artful and creative day.

    I ask that you allow me an extension on the meeting notes as I unfortunately left my notebook in my office and unable to retrieve it until Monday. Please look for meeting notes Monday evening.

    I will upload the notes "files" section under the "more" tab in the main menu bar.

    re Meeting at MLK Library: Thank you, Jamila, for your lead on the effort towards a group show. Ditto for the ideas about business questions from Katherine and James on using the internet specifically for artist's needs.

    About the planning session/s - locations like A&E Districts, Montgomery County, VA, Baltimore /ARTSCAPE, DC /Eastern Market-
    I don't want to suggest scrounge & scrape stuff. :}

    October 20, 2013

    • James C.

      Hello Ellen. What does scrounge & scrape stuff mean??? I'm not sure I understand your comment.

      October 20, 2013

    • Ellen S.

      Hi Foodographer! -Just feeling some embarrassment in case my suggestions sounded "pedestrian" to some-hence, my little grin :}

    Here's a descriptive map of the Gallery Place-Chinatown Metro's exit that's closest to the library, called Chinatown/Gallery Exit on our Google map (or Metro's SE corner 9th & G Sts., NW). It indicates the direction of the escalator (no elevator at that particular exit). http://www.wmata.com/rail/evacuation/08.020.pdf

    Here's the Metro's page to find detailed maps of all the stops' exits (their "Stations" link): http://www.wmata.com/rail/stations.cfm
    Just look on the page of the station you choose for the Entrances/Evacuation Maps list of .pdfs

    Hi! I am moving back on the 29th and won't be able to make this meetup but I am really interested in joining a group exhibit. Is it alright if I join late and attend the next meeting? My work is at www.cassandrebolan.com

    October 16, 2013

    • Jamila

      Sure. Next week will be the first planning meeting which will be the first brainstorming session on how to implement the group showing. So if you are unable to attend the first planning meeting that will not hinder your ability to have your work shown.
