West Edge Artists Co-op being founded; are you interested?

In response to the growing need for retail gallery space, studio space, and marketing assistance for local artists, writes Debbie Engle, a group of local artists/business people are forming an artists’ co-op for Northwest Louisiana.

In an effort to gauge interest among the arts community, we would like to know if you would be interested in joining in this venture as a member, associate member, consignment artist, investor, donor, etc. Membership fees will be minimal, and co-op members will enjoy benefits such as:

· Upscale retail gallery space
· Professional marketing and promotional assistance
· The opportunity to rent studio space
· The opportunity to share ideas and techniques with other artists in a creative environment
· The opportunity to participate in workshops with nationally-known artists
· Participation in co-op events such as group shows and sidewalk arts events
· Continual exposure within the tourism and business sectors

Please respond to WEACo_op@yahoo.com.

Best of Luck. Found out late this week that even the West Edge Committee isn't sure of where the West Edge is. Best that you just tell them.
