Production for the August 2015 exhibition catalog is underway.Below is the outline for production, marketing, sales and distribution.One important point to make here is that Art Impact USA will be personally responsible for marketing and distribution before the opening reception. 150 catalogs will be mailed out to key DMV area media and art organizations (university, art departments, galleries, museum, art coops, etc.)So anyone included in this catalog will get premium exposure to people who can move the needle.
All we ask is that each of the exhibiting artists contribute $100 as they will get a full page and a quarter of space.You will each receive 25 copies.Advertisers will have the opportunity to purchase half page ads for $50 (receiving 12 copies) and full page ads for $100 (receiving 25 copies.) There are no quarter page ads being offered. We are utilizing the catalog not only as a historical document, but to also announce your artistry to the community and region.Here is the plan:
