ART ON THE SQUARE ARTISTS FEATURED 
LIVE!  ON FACEBOOK!

We’re generating a lot more “buzz” on Facebook! Gallery manager, Cynthia Nance has started videoing a live Facebook interview with the week day shift volunteers and putting the "spotlight" on their work. Shift volunteers on Tuesday through Friday are the featured “artists of the day”! The daily Facebook Live post is getting a lot of “likes and shares” which elevates the exposure for our gallery and especially the featured artists. Visit our Facebook page (Ellis County Art) to see all the interviews –EllisCountyArt Facebook be sure to "LIKE & SHARE".


SATURDAY & SUNDAY SHIFT VOLUNTEERS –
“POP-UP ART SHOW”

The Downtown Merchants Association has scheduled holiday events & activities every weekend in December!  In addition to the Facebook Live posts during the week, weekend volunteers are allowed to “feature” up to 5 of their inventory pieces in the gallery out front on the sidewalk. We have two (2) 6’ wire roll-around rack displays that are stored in the middle closet in the classroom. The requirements: (1) Volunteers who wish to hang work out front are responsible for setting up the display, (2) Your work is featured only during your shift – you must remove & rehang your work at end of your shift, (3) Return the Roll-around displays to the classroom closet at the end of the day.


OPPORTUNITY:

If you haven’t fulfilled your shift obligation as a gallery artist, sign in to the website & check out the volunteer calendar for December – sign up & take advantage of the opportunity to “toot your own horn” and showcase your art during your shift! To take advantage of holiday shoppers, we have added a 2pm to 6pm shift on Fridays during December. (We encourage you to sign up on a Saturday or Sunday to take advantage of the sidewalk sale…)
