There is a new network of artists that has been formed on Ning...we call it Artistic Avant-Garde. Christy Sobolewski and I have tried to create a networking venue for mixed media artist, writers and music artist. We are hoping to broaden our horizons in the artistic world by making a place where all types of artist can meet and discuss what is going on in all aspects of the art world. Sometimes I feel that I work in a "little" box and need to expand my world to accommodate my creative spirit. Hopefully this Artistic Avantgarde site will help get me out of the "box" and embellish my art world. If you are interested in joining us please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me why you are interested.
