Other quilts feature a crossword puzzle of Arizona terms, a quilt begun in the 1930s but not completed until this project, a quilt by a Hopi quilter from First Mesa, a quilt by a Brownie girls scout troop, and several 'art' quilts that celebrate different themes of our state.

Cross Marketing Strategies for Artists

June 20

Most artists create because it's what they absolutely love to do. Whether they are a painter, ceramist, or photographer, selling their art is usually an after-thought. In today's market, very few artists are able to rely on a gallery or some other business organization to do their marketing for them. The artist must be willing to take care of the business of promoting their own art, and also navigate the world of digital marketing. On Thursday, June 20, at 6 p.m., Mike Upp will present Cross Marketing Strategies for Artists, and hold a discussion on one of the most common dilemmas facing any working artist today at the Sedona Visual Artists' Coalition's June General Meeting. SVAC Member Meetings are held at 54 Bowstring Drive, located off Hwy. 179 just north of the Morgan Road roundabout. All artists, and members of the public, are welcome to attend.

For more information about SVAC, visit the website at: http://sedonaartistscoalition.org/, contact president@sedonaartistscoalition.org, or call (928) 239-9967.
