So it seems I've neglected this great platform to share and discovery all sorts of inspiring artwork and creative people. I want to change that. Much of the last year of my life has been spent on other projects outside of photography, mainly an Art gallery I've opened in Allentown, PA called The Alternative Gallery.
The Alternative Gallery was started as a venue for local artists in my area to have a permanent place to display and sell their work, in a very fair fashion. Many galleries are out to make money off of artists, that's not our goal. We want the talented, overlooked artists of smaller cities and parts of the world to get the recognition they deserve. We want them to be able to create full time as opposed to doing it on the side whenever their work schedule allows.
With the experience that myself and the other artists who started this gallery have accrued, we pass that knowledge on and help artists properly prepare their work for exhibits and how to operate in the big world of Art. We show artists how to correctly mat & frame pieces, what sites are good for promoting and what are bad, tips of how to make a name for yourself in the art world, etc.
Feel free to check out the facebook for the gallery: www.facebook.com/thealternativ…
Our website is closed to finished, it will be up sometime this month. Check back for details on that.
This is a gallery that started as a platform for local artists but we welcome all artists all around the world to take part in it. We want to build lasting relationships all around the world for our artists and yours.
