The upcoming direction of the website
CATHERINE'S RESPONSE AROUND A QUESTION ON THE COMPETITION AND DIRECTION OF THE SITE...
I want to address your concern as one that is shared by many others on www.myartspace.com. I think it is fair to say that even our Tech team is staggered by the numbers some contestants are pulling in. We are in a new era! We can see the stretch of the web and the creative techniques people can harness to build their network, is far beyond our wildest imaginations. We started myartspace site with a competition and it is hard to see all the many other things we will be offering Visual Artists until our next version is out, after the competition is over. We are really a free website for Artists/Photographers to put their work up, availing state of the art technology and communication capabilities, such as messaging and blogs, video, (so we can really start to build a network of significant friends and contacts). This version is due out after the competition ends, near the end of July. There will be personal stores available for each gallery member as well in the fall.
Myartspace will sponsor many other opportunities for artists/photographers to participate in, including juried shows. We hope you’re happy with the uses our site can avail, to extend your art to others and build a network of appreciators.
We appreciate your feedback.
See below a sample of what the new site will look like....
