There is a great new channel of communication now available to everyone that loves Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, and Space art. It's the Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, and Space Art Shows group on Yahoo groups. This group focuses on Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, and Space Art Shows, art events, creation methods, and the general business of art in these genre's. The art shows can include convention art shows of all sizes (e.g., Dragon*Con, Vulkon, Worldcon, Sci-Fi Summer Con, etc..), online exhibitions and many other events. Public discussions are welcome. Topics will be of interest to anyone (e.g., artists, buyers, art directors, and general attendees, etc..) from a casual interest to people looking to start business. These topics range from art work pricing, what has been selling lately, how to get in touch with an artist for commission work, art event announcements, methods on making art, buyers looking to buy art, legal issues, business practices, and many others.
Yahoo! Groups is a free service that allows you to bring together family, friends, and associates through a web site and email group. You don't need to know HTML to create your own site. Yahoo! Groups offer a convenient way to connect with others who share the same interests and ideas. Yahoo! Groups has hundreds of thousands of email groups that you can join in an easy-to-use, privacy-protected, and spam-protected environment. You can use the Yahoo! Groups service at yahoo.com or through any email program.
The Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, and Space Art Shows group offers many options important to the artist, art director, and buyer. You can receive all the emails directly to your favorite email account, or just special announcements, or you can set it up to receive no emails and you can then read all the messages on the groups web page. Besides messages, members can participate in real-time chat sessions. Most discussions are not scheduled but there will be scheduled discussions about many topics of interest.
The Files area contains registration forms for artists to participate in art shows and there is free software and documentation for art directors to use at their art show.
Another function is Photos. Artists can post pictures of there art work. The Photos section is a virtual art gallery that is always changing.
Polls is another function that is of great interest to artists and buyers. Polls are taken on the important topics to this art field. This helps artists and buyers get a sense of what is on the minds of people in this industry.
The Calendar function is used to announce all kinds of events on and off the web. The Calendar is very important to artists in that it is the primary way to list events artists can display and sell their work. These events can be anything from ones you physically attend to online events. All scheduled chat room discussions will be listed on the Calendar. Groups of members can, on their own, hold group chat sessions that they have scheduled on the Calendar.
The Database section is used to list contact information about artists, art show directors, legal aid, and others. This service offers interested parties the ability to find that artist or art director for future business.
Bookmarks is an area that artists or buyers can post links to web sites that are art related. These can include artists or art resources web sites. Of course there are many other options. Please feel free to exercise them all.
