As our Pledge Drive rolls on the pledges are coming in and the nice messages including this one from Jan Hubbard:

  • Hi Connie I have been receiving these pledge e-mail and I am very happy to pledge because your site is a wonderful source for artists. I am always telling my fellow artists about it. It’s great to see it growing.

I hope you'll be joining this group soon. 

Many thanks to:

Can't help sharing these kind messages.

  • Although my income is very nill right now, as I have been helping family out at this time for health reasons and a death... i still spread awareness of your site and any art fests that are nearby!

    As I would like to continue getting the emails and updates also!

    Thank you for doing such a great job on everything and keeping our world a more "artsy" kind of place ;)

Had to! Glad to! The wealth of info I have learned on your sites has been invaluable. Thank you.

Sweet!! Thanks, Scotty.
