Artisan Direct Ltd. has committed to building Art Spaces in the following Cities

Cleveland, Ohio – Opening November 9th, 2012
Port Jefferson, New York – Opening October 13th, 2012
Ft. Lauderdale, Fl. – Opening November 1st, 2012
New York City – Opening January, 1st, 2013
Chicago, Ill. – Opening Summer of 2013
Artisan Direct is looking for Artists who would like to become Members of the new Art Spaces that the Company is building.  Please see Gallery Membership benefits.  The Company believes that in order for an artist to be successful the artist has to financially contribute side by side with the Gallery.  In the past, Galleries would bear the entire financial burden with the artist contributing their work for sale.  The artist and gallery would typically split the cost of the future sale. That business model no longer works because the cost of properly promoting an artist has risen so high that most Galleries simply don’t have the financial resources to do a professional and adequate job of marketing its artists.  That is why Artisan Direct has created a  Gallery Membership program for each of its Galleries.  We believe this is the most practical and effective way to really help an artist. 
Please advise me if you are interested in discussing this new artist – gallery relationship.

Thank you very much.

People often say that it takes at least 15 years to make an organization grow and mature. The not- for-profit WAH Center (Williamsburg Art & Historical Center) took 16 years to come this far while learning many lessons along the way.

The WAH Center has endeavored to fulfill the founder's "Bridge Concept" - the idea of which is to coalesce diverse artistic communities and create a global bridge with emerging and established artists of all disciplines. We hope that our programs have inspired, educated and entertained the public at large, and we wish to express our sincere thanks to those kind supporters who had faith in the WAH Center's unique mission and helped us grow. All of the noble ideas of "WAH" will be reminded, for WAH in Japanese means "Peace, Harmony and Unity".

So, this fall we celebrate what the WAH Center has cultivated over the years and also what nature has provided in the harvest. Housed in a New York City and National Landmark, the WAH Center will offer this fall not only a fine art show but also a Gala Dinner and various performance programs for The Sweet 16th Anniversary Harvest Celebration. In this spirit, our open call provides an opportunity for outstanding artists to showcase work to new audiences in Williamsburg, a prominent art community in Brooklyn, New York and to national and international visitors from around the world.

The WAH Center is now accepting submissions for The Grand Harvest, an international juried show. Theme: How do artists envision the greening or re-greening of the world? What technologies do artists envision to assure the crops and foods for tomorrow from earth and sea?

ACCEPTANCE Notification of accepted work will be sent via email by Sun. October 7, 2012 ELIGIBILITY This call for entries is open to all international artists, working in any medium.
