04/15/2004: "Help with Mailing List of Next Exhibit"
I'm trying to put together a mailing list for my next show which isn't for another two months but I want to get an early start on it because I'm going to be really busy this summer. Normally, I rely on the gallery's mailing list, only the place where I'm having my show is new and I'm not sure how much of a mailing list they already have.
Does anyone have suggestions on how I can get a list of addresses of people from my area who like to attend art openings? Do you think it would be appropriate to ask one of the other galleries in town if I could use theirs? Or is that taboo? other ideas?
Also, if anyone wants me to send them a postcard invitation, just email me with your address and I'll add you to my current mailing list, even if you're not from Alaska. I love getting invitations to shows too by the way, so if anyone wants to add me to their mailing list, that would be very cool.
Anyone getting ready to have a show? I'd LOVE to just see what your invitations look like. I always have such a difficult time designing mine and I have a lot of questions, like, what's the best software to use for the layout? Where's a good place to get them printed up? I've gone with a local company for years now but they consistently do a terrible job of it. I think I'm ready for a change.
So, basically any advice about invitations or mailing lists would be most appreciated.
