Freestanding Display Demo
Saturday, March 8, 1:30 pm
Home of Stan Eichner, 32 Pearl Street, Somerville
Stan Eichner (photographer, SOS member, Community Space coordinator) will demo a simple system for hanging artwork in areas with no available walls. This is especially applicable to artists showing in the Community Space but other artists may find the system handy as well.
This event is capped at 20 participants. Please RSVP to secure your spot in the demo: email@example.com
Make Your Own Artist's Website
Ever wanted to start your own portfolio website? If you want to share your art online, there are some excellent (and free!) options to show your work to a broader online audience. In this talk I'll present WordPress and Tumblr, two services you can use to make your own websites, and then we'll look at ways to customize them both to suit your tastes.
A one-hour presentation followed by Q&A
