It is my deep, dark pleasure to announce the annual Online Hallowe'en Artists' Studio Tour! This is my "treat" to you all, a special way to celebrate my favorite season, share some exceptional art by artists I personally admire and raise money for animal charities. With this blog, I hope to keep you up-to-date with proceedings and progress as we approach the yearly "launch" on October 1st!

Bleeding for your attention

Continuing to get the word out, our 2014 tour is now listed on the Perth Arts Connect event calendar!  Take a look by clicking here and click through to October. 

This so seasonally appropriate photo is by Carl Chalupa, who will "probably" take part again!
And, of course, the Halloweeners need to know, so we're listed on their haunts page, click here and scroll down to our tour's button.  Once I get our poster fixed for 2014 I'll send it in to be added to the Calendar of Events page.

We're a "Global Online Show"

We're listed on "Artist Bears International"!  Yes, this exciting online spot to see some of the newest soft sculpture creations from around the globe has included our tour on their "Global Online Shows" page.  Take a look by clicking here

In the spirit of sharing the flame (of course ours is a spooky, haunted flame!),  Brenda from ABI suggested the following:
"Please tell your bear and soft sculpture artists about us, we are adding new artists on an ongoing basis.  The artists can promote their work that is going to be in your show on our site and add a link to your page during the show.  Nice way to cross promote :-)."   
Indeed!  Yes, there is a cost to have your critters on the Artist Bears International site, but I think you'll agree that the rates are very reasonable.   

Thank you, Beth, for the heads-up about this website!
