MARKETING MATERIALS

Artist Directory
The Artist Directory includes one sample from each artist who applied and their contact information: studio or gallery name, artist name, address, medium, phone, email, website. These beautiful directories will be available for the public to pick up at the Vallejo Naval and Historical Museum. Artists can pick up copies for distribution at the Museum Reception.

Artist Calendar (Trying it again for the second Year)
For-Sale, Artist Calendar
. Twelve artists will each have one full page to showcase a sample of their creative genius. Twelve artists will contribute $200 each, and in exchange, one piece of your work will be featured in one month of the calendar. This will be designed as a classic style calendar. This year we will again print 1,000 copies, but they will be distributed equally among the 12 participating artists to distribute as you like. Anyone interested, please email us ASAP at info@vallejoopenstudios.com

Postcards
As in the past, postcards will be created for your distribution and will complement the look of the Artist Directory. You also have the option of creating your own. Email us for a copy of the logo to use in your artwork. info@vallejoopenstudios.com
