ARTNADO Invites Local Art Associations And Art-Related Non-Profits To Receive FREE Booth Space- Plus New Artist Discounts

Artistic Synergy Inc., through it’s inaugural show ARTNADO, has established two main goals. The first is to provide a robust indoor environment designed to showcase the artists and their work in ways that cannot be accomplished with the traditional outdoor tent shows. The second is to help promote the arts in Southeast Florida.  The Rickie Report shares the details for Art Associations and Art-Related Non-Profits Organizations to receive FREE 10 x 10 booth spaces. Individual artists who are part of any Non-Profit or Art Association taking booth space will be entitled to a discount on their OWN booth! Artists who have taken part in any Art Marketing Seminar with Rickie Leiter are also eligible for a discount on their own booth space!  Don’t miss  the August 1st cut off for a 15% general discount on other booth spaces! More details will follow about the Student Art Contest.  We remind our readers that ARTNADO and Artistic Synergy Inc. is a different entity from Art Synergy/Art Palm Beach.

 

 

 

artnado-ad-1-30-15

 

 

 Jack Busa, Chief Creative Executive, is announcing a gift of FREE 10×10 space for all area Art Associations and Art related Non-Profits.  He tells The Rickie Report, “This will enable your organization to inform the public about what you do, in addition to offering membership opportunities and displaying examples of past and current events. Your members will be able to display but not sell their work from your space. Because ARTNADO is already offering the lowest price per square foot for juried art shows, we understand that artists are concerned about their expenses. Therefore, any member of an organization that takes advantage of this offer, will be given a 10% rebate on the price of the exhibition space they choose to display and sell their art.”

 

Any artists who has taken part in an Art Marketing Seminar involving Rickie Leiter, Publisher of The Rickie Report will be eligible for a 15% rebate on individual booth space.  Fill out the ZAPP and then send a separate email to Artistic Synergy Inc telling them you have been a participant.

 

Jack explains, “Since all applications need to be submitted through ZAPP there is no provisions for a two-tier pricing structure. Hence a refund check will be issued ARTNADO’s  move-in date on November 13th.”

 

This offer, when combined with the options of either a 10×10, 10×20 and even a 20×20 “personal gallery” exhibition area, offers an unprecedented exposure for most of the area’s artist.

 

UPCOMING STUDENT ART CONTEST

 

 In addition, a Student Art Contest will be formally announced soon. If you know  any young artists who would like to get an early start, the information is available on our website artisticsynergy.org.

 

 

ARTNADO is looking for partners to be Drop-Off Centers for Student Artwork around the County.  Please email or call to make arrangements.  You will be included in future advertising, marketing and promotions!

 

 For more information send an e-mail to artisticsynergy@mail.com requesting a space and  you will be called to confirm the details.

If you have any questions, please call  561-557-8741 and ask to speak directly to Jack Busa.
