From: Steve Cebalt, Highview Public Relations, Fort Wayne
Are you interested in certain artists? Perhaps local ones...or even your talented friends and associates? I am currently buying art for a new store. Highview PR is extending its creative services to a new endeavor: A retail shop for Art and Collectibles, to be located in Pine Valley Shopping Center, opening this spring. Our PR business offices will move into new space within the Fort Wayne area art gallery.
We would welcome your input now! Highview's designer and creative director will buy, sell and trade art -- from wall decor to fine art to multimedia works from crafted jewelry, textile works, photography, sculpture, digital art, ceramic, glass, quilts, baskets, even 1-page poetry and flash fiction if it can be displayed creatively.
We are ESPECIALLY interested in showcasing the remarkable talents of regional High School students. If you know of any student artists or art teachers, please have them contact us at this e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
We'll also buy, sell and trade "collectables." Right now I am buying Van Briggle pottery to build a thriving market in this one-of-a-kind collectable. I'd love to find a whole "starter collection" to buy.
As the wordsmith at Highview PR, I will be in charge of buying and selling Tweet Art. This new category will recognize writing of any kind that can fit in 140 characters and which has a message that people would want to display -- inspiration, humor, poetry, aphorisms. These will be framed or published in calendars and sold as a new form of art -- because I think that some tweets are just so good that they deserve to be preserved and enjoyed repeatedly.
The store, "Highview Arts & Collectibles" is now sourcing its initial collection. Tell us what specific artists or art forms you enjoy, and also tell us if YOU have items you'd like us to consider for sale in the store. REPLY to this e-mail, and we will try to work your interests into our mix. Indicate whether you'd like to receive an announcement when the shop opens.
Highview Public Relations has always thrived on creative expression, in solving complex problems for clients, in writing, and in graphic art. We think having our PR business offices housed in the new Highview Art and Collectibles Shop will provide us with daily inspiration to keep our fires burning for years to come.
