Planning for 2018

At the meeting on Saturday 25th November we discussed our program for 2018.

This is the stage we are at... with times to be confirmed...asap please.




Recently there have been some discussions about how to prepare images of work for sale online and the possibility of an online presence. Currently the group promotes gallery activities and artists look after their own enterprise. There are some strategies which can help artists to promote their work in the best light. If people are interested in knowing more about preparing images for online sales there is a workshop on 3rd March.

This is how Curdnatta promotes artists.....
        1.Google presence art gallery port augusta
            best add your reviews to bump up the profile.



       2.Our Facebook page reaches a wide range of people and promotes all activities at the gallery.

Recent posts have reached over 1000 people 




Christmas promotion ... 1599 people reached.

When people "like" our page or "like"  posts on the page it lifts our profile.
If you ask friends to "like" our page it has a greater reach.



    3.We currently have several members who have online sites where they promote or sell their work and if people ring the gallery from interstate looking for local work we suggest they go to these sites.

We promote these artists through our Curdnatta Global group at our Facebook Page. However this also depends on members of the group adding posts about their activities and successes.
