The JEGA GALLERY & SCULPTURE GARDEN, in Ashland, Oregon's historic
railroad district on the corner of 5th and A Street celebrates Women's

J. Ellen Austin, artist and owner of the JEGA Gallery believes,"' Women
With Attitude,' and the men who believe in us, exhibit courage in
their daily lives and strive to give back to others, their communities
and society at large." J. Ellen goes on to say, I'm talking about
women and men who do something with their lives and keep on doing,
keep on learning, growing and contributing."
"Attitude" symbolizes an outlook and respect for other peoples'
philosophies, lifestyles and cultural diversities while retaining a
youthful willingness to learn and grow from new knowledge and
JEGA looks forward to each year's entries because "one of the wonders
of "Women with Attitude" is creativity, in all senses, all forms."

Radio advertisement is a great way to sell yourself and your art!
There are already social media sites and high-end printing solutions for advertising but, the use of radio can’t be totally eliminated! It is effectively used since its cost efficient and friendlier. A radio can be used at different places whether you are home or out of the city. Enhance communication and spread awareness of your artwork. There are a lot of benefits in considering this medium of advertising. However, you need to be sure that you do it right. Radio advertisement is most likely to fit your budget, which is a fantastic option for newer artists. Blogging yourself, is also a great way to build awareness. Compared to other means like print and TV ads, radio ads are a budget-friendly way of marketing as an artist and any art events you would like to promote! Radio and Podcasts are also a great way to keep up on local art events. A great example of this is ART ON THE AIRWAVES FOR JANUARY, 2014 by Cammy Davis. ArtStorm was very excited to be mentioned: http://cammydavis.com/cammys-promotions/art-on-the-airwaves-for-january-2014/ What are you waiting for? It is time for a fresh start in 2014!

Both Paula and I were able to attend the "Art Along the Rogue" community art fair in Grants Pass on Sunday and not only did we enjoy the fantastic art and perfect weather but we were able to talk to several of the artists and also snag some of the tasty eats from the restaurants in the area.
The weather forecast is for perfect weather in Grants Pass, Oregon for this weekend's "Art Along the Rogue" annual music and street chalk art festival.
