A few months ago, I received the following email. “I love reading your e-blasts – you have such creative artists represented. Thanks for helping me through this pandemic!” The e-blasts referred here is our weekly art e-newsletters, Artdose Magazine Weekly. I treasure these types of responses as a reminder of what we are doing is making a difference beyond the words and images we publish or share online. It gets to the core of what we need right now and that is to continue connecting even if it is virtually.
We continue to build relationships with artists, small businesses, non-profits, galleries, and arts centers throughout Wisconsin. This has presented opportunities to collaborate via projects, exhibitions, and partnerships. We have experienced challenges and obstacles; big or small. Why not work together? Afterall, we are in this together.
In this issue, we introduce The Bubbler (Madison), The Bindery (Milwaukee), and Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts (Fond du Lac); artists Tania Bonilla, Emily Clements, Sarah FitzSimons, Ben Higgins, Karen Ann Hoffman, Rebekah Knuth, Wence and Sandra Martinez, Julie Von Der Vellen, and the collective Las Raras; 2021 Grilled Cheese Grant artists; our newest partnerships with the Wisconsin Visual Artists and Authentic Obsessions Podcast; and a growing list of supporters, art venues, and artists.
