Call first and make an appointment. That is the most
courteous thing to do and they will usually see you,
tell them you only need 15 minutes then you can take
longer if they are interested.

Tibi -

I found a few good URLs of examples of artist's resumes. I've also been
looking into starting one mostly so I can keep track of everything I'm

I hope this helps!

Hello everyone!

As many of you already know, last year I opened an
art/printmaking center in Italy featuring many works I had in my
collection from the baren exchanges and printaustralia exchanges.
year I will be featuring another show called
contemporary review of fine art printmaking

This event is patronized
by the Abruzzo region, the municipality of Castiglione and the province
of Pescara but I am practically using my own funds to put this art
festival and event together. The municipality will only help with
advertising and promotion. This is why I am making an open call to all
those people interested in showing their work in this venue. There is
no entry fee.

For more information: http://www.centrodedalo.

I hope you are interested in tihs possibility
