There are always Opportunities!

Sophia here with more opportunities for our local artists! With just one more month before I leave Louisiana, I smirk at the thought that I am now noticing so many more exhibition opportunities than I have in the past. Perfect timing, right? Well, yes! It's never too late. First on the charts we have the Art Melt, the largest multi-media juried art exhibit in Louisiana, showcasing the artistic, musical and culinary talents of the state! This will be Forum 35's tenth Annual Art Melt with an opening on July 20th. To enter your artwork, visit between March 1st and June 1st. This is the first step! Show your artwork outside of Ruston... outside of North Louisiana... and into Baton Rouge for the Art Melt! You'll soon make your way into those national, out of state exhibits!

The Art Addiction art project quickly evolved into an efficacious on-line art marketing entity, an endeavor that has grown and flourished throughout the last two decades. By formalizing an on-line ‘business-of-art’ model, expenditures and overhead attributed to the sale of art have been slashed, commensurate with increased profitability for the associated artists.
