In the midst of all our holiday celebrations, I submitted my portfolio to Xanadu Gallery of Scottsdale, Arizona. My art was accepted to their online gallery! Yippee! I am so thrilled to be associated with this wonderful gallery. And they notified me and had my page set up within 24 hours. (Even though their submission guidelines said two weeks.) It was really nice of them to be so prompt, it kept me from worrying and wondering for two weeks. 🙂

I am still in the process of loading my art to the site and I LOVE how the purchase button is all set up. It takes you to a shopping cart that gives you payment options. I haven’t had the time to figure out how to set this up on my Artspan website. It’s so nice to have it all done for me.
I met Jason Horejs, the owner of the gallery a few years ago at a workshop he taught for artists. His workshop was really helpful and he was so nice and gracious to all the artists that attended. He has written some great books to help artists with the business side of their art. Here is a link to the landing page with his books https://squareup.com/market/xanadu-gallery. He also writes a blog http://www.reddotblog.com/wordpress/ which is a great marketing resource for artists.
