Hello and welcome to our new blog! We are so glad you have joined us! If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Ms. Ella Dorsey, who is going to be spearheading this new endeavor. She can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org. In this blog, we hope you’ll find a range of resources and ideas to inspire you, provoke you, and possibly even transform you! Please consider sending the link for our blog to all your family, friends, business associates, and neighbors.
We welcome free-flowing discourse between…
the young and the young-at-heart,
the creator and the patron,
the artist who is just embarking on their career
and the seasoned professional,
and finally, the informed and the curious!
It is our intention to offer the following categories of content:
Meet Our Artist
Each month, this page will feature a new artist, and will include a quick biography or resume, an artist’s statement, and examples of their art. There will be a comments section, which will give our readers an opportunity for to connect with the artist, asking questions to learn more about what you find compelling. In this area, we offer our readers the chance to learn more about the artist’s process, their background, their themes, their medium, and their inspirations.
Something to Consider – Editorial
Each month, this page will feature an editorial, relating the artistic process and art history to current events. The editorial will provide you with a bridge between the world of art and the world as a whole – topics might include: economics and finance, war and terrorism, social and cultural expectations for women, poverty and charity, politics and propaganda, environmentalism and recycling, or others. We’ll include a comments section here, and may even be inspired by reader comments to respond in the next essay to what you think!
