Here at the Green Mountain Outlook, we take great pride and passion in helping to promote the local arts and music scene.
From our "local musician's spotlight" article series and local artist profiles, to Robert F. Smith's "all things pop culture" column and all the local press releases we can fit, to this editor's local CD reviews, we are committed to promoting all things art and music in our coverage area and beyond.
When we opened up our new office in August and were preparing for our first "open house" event, Robert had the idea to dedicate some of our open wall space to local artists and photographers who might be interested in gracing our office with their art.
The opportunity is two-fold, the artist gets to display and promote (and hopefully sell) their work free of selling fees, plus we get to fill our office with the great work of our local artists!
The premiere Red Wall showing at our open house displayed selected paintings and drawings from Lori Weber, a fantastic local artist from Westminster.
We are currently lining up more artists interested in showing their work, including local photographers Allissa and Roberto Gutierrez and Chester artist and illustrator Bill Long.
Moving forward, we will be looking to display and promote other local works of art - paintings, drawings, photography, small sculptures perhaps - therefore we encourage interested artists to email us a couple j-peg photos of their art works along with a short bio or resume, for us to review.
We will also be putting together artist profile articles for The Outlook, to coincide with our Red Wall Gallery featured artists.
Please submit your photo samples and bio information to co-editors Joe Milliken and Robert F. Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
