...serenity in motion
I have said it before and I will continue to do so, I was raised in the art market. I have seen the late 70's, 80's, 90's and 2k art market evolve, suffer and change. As time has gone on, our nation has come to value the small entreprenuer and what they bring to the economic table on a state and national level. Here we are now, in a time of huge financial crisis and our national legislature has united to help carry us through. In unprecedented numbers, small business loans, emergency loans and emergency grants are being offered to help small business owners and artists across the diciplines survive. If you have a need apply; if you have the means, donate. Where you can, hire, employ and buy art.
