Shadow News / 4.10.2020

4.10.2020 Hello and Good Morning! The second edition of Shadow News is here. Just a few things to pass along to you guys. I found quite a list of organizations on the National Endowment for the Arts website. These organizations are providing resources not only for artists but also for art organizations during COVID-19. Here is the link: http://www.arts.gov/covid-19-resources-for-artists-and-arts-organizations. For those living in or around the Atlanta, Georgia area, if you’re interested in photography, then Atlanta School for Photography is the best place to start honing on your photography skills. Go atlschoolofphoto.com for online classes.  Lastly, I will not be in my office for the rest of next week, but someone on my two-person staff will post a MidWeek Update and a Weekend Update. I will return on April 20. Enjoy your weekend and your week, be safe, be healthy, be blessed! Happy Easter! 🐰🐇🥚   Featured image: unknown

3.1.2020 #3 / Vol. 8 Hello! March has arrived and we have quite a few things in store this month. Mandy Moore, Moby, Riz Ahmed, Alicia Keys, and many others old and new are setting up shop for new music this month. Beyond Wonderland, Treefort Music Festival, and Ultra Miami are just the latest music festivals to come in March. Twenty-two to be exact.  AWP Conference and Bookfair is on March 4-7, I will provide the schedule for this event later this week. For those who are attending, please be sure you have every I dotted and every T crossed, meaning that registration and other information is correct.  Also, I will do a wrap of Fashion Week 2020 in Milan and Paris this week too.  March is Women’s History Month so be prepared to see some creativity by past, present, and future women in all forms of art.  Let’s move on from February and dive into March!             Featured image: Wallpaper Cave
