Critically Thinking

As of January 1, my term as Marketing Director for an art gallery comes to an end and the wonderful world of possibility opens up with a fresh start . . . I am making the freelance switch.

There are so many things I love to do (see the furniture? I designed and built it!) that I litterally have a toy box full of choices. 

Last night, after a local tweetup, I made my decision. . . to help artists/galleries by designing their ads, websites & logos, writing press releases, creating submission/media/press packets and of course by writing feature articles on their exhibits for local publications like ExhibitC, a regional magazine focused on the arts. 

I am still working on the logistics and I understand that there is a lot of hard work ahead of me  - but with local resources and incredible support from the art community, I have to say that this is one of the happiest days of my life. . . I finally get to swim in the deep end of the entrepreneurial pool!
