A very good friend and colleague, Chaitra Vedullapalli, has an important announcement that I want to share with my readers:
SEATTLE, WA–(Marketwire -04/25/12)
What do you feel when the sunny season arrives or when you have a burst of creativity? Alive, complete, empowered. When your masterpiece is “fin,” behold… everyone must see this! And, who is there to view and enjoy your piece de resistance with you?
The future of sharing Washington State talent has arrived with the launch of Showcase Seattle – Seattle’s newest and brightest avenue for local artists and artisans to reach global audiences of art enthusiasts, collectors and consumers.
Founded in 2012, Showcase Seattle offers a forum for local artists and artisans to reach a global audience leveraging all offline and online communication channels. Barriers such as money constraints and ever-changing technology are mitigated in a supportive environment by offering an avenue for specific brand awareness and marketing that a member of Showcase Seattle otherwise may not have.
Today, Showcase Seattle represents several early adopters who present the diverse and rich cultures of the local creative community. Showcase Seattle is rapidly growing and accepting nominations and invitations daily to expand their community of artists and collections of their artwork.
“Thriving local artists and artisans are the heart and soul of a healthy and vibrant community,” says Patti Dobrowolski, Showcase Seattle’s board member. “Showcase Seattle empowers each individual artist to grow their online and offline business through simple and amazingly effective showcase and sponsorship programs designed to meet each artist’s needs.”
Based on community engagement and nominations as key value propositions, Showcase Seattle provides a single destination for the community to sponsor Washington-based artists in two very important ways.
First, as an online showcase platform, Showcase Seattle changes the perception of a “local artisan” to “global artisan,” assisting with a personalized campaign utilizing the artist’s voice and sculpting an accurate representation of their work.
Second, as a sponsorship platform, local sponsors join Showcase Seattle to provide an interesting and collaborative venue that support artist advancement through marketing, events and volunteer opportunities thus promoting a vibrant arts community and integrated art culture across Washington State.
