Meet the Exhibitions team
We celebrate our first year of Exhibitions (see article below) by showing you the team that is starting to put together the improved version for 2006. Anita and Brigid are ready to help you with your submission into the Exhibition that the art world has been coming to see. Each of these young ladies is helpful, charming, and patient, so give them a call at (800) 647-6336.

Exhibitions 06 -- better than ever!
One year ago we decided to try a new way to get more exposure for working artists of quality. Our idea, which we called Exhibitions, was to do the Art Show one better by using the capabilities of the internet to make it:
- accessible anytime
- friendly to global artists
- accessible from anywhere
- "all about the art"
- accessible forever.
The inaugural year of art-exchange's Exhibition has finished with a beautiful collection of alternative media. We're already collecting entries for the 2006 shows, so it's not too early to enter. Go here for a full description and to sign up, or call us at (800) 647-6336 x 100.

MOCA obtains works for permanent collection
Many of you have responded to our call for works donated to build the permanent collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art in our "hometown" of Hot Springs, Arkansas. Ten works have been selected from the hundreds submitted so far. The selection committee will continue to slowly, carefully work through existing and new submissions, accepting a handful each month in order to maintain control over the flow of property into the museum.

Report from Atlanta
Our President and CEO, Richard Gipe, recently spoke on a panel art DecorExpo Atlanta on the topic of "e-tailing". Some of the key points coming out of the panel:
- in order to keep up, artists MUST be on the web
- building a website is a significant amount of work... and so is maintaining one
- a community website [such as art-exchange] is the best option for most artists.
If you agree, give us a call at (800) 647-6336 x 100 to join the art-exchange community.
