Newsletter N.1, Spring 2015
I am pleased to announce the launch of the Spring 2015 Newsletter. Future editions will seek to inform you of current activities, events, and exhibitions in the art world. Provocative discussions will be initiated in order to encourage thoughtful expression, stimulate creativity, and provide invaluable learning opportunities. Compelling blogs will also serve as an autobiographical journal exploring relevant trends. Finally, emphasizing the socio-cultural, historical, and political significance of various artistic traditions will help to promote a deeper understanding of art, photography, architecture, design, and fashion.
Newsletters will be accompanied by photographic essays, brief informational texts, and critiques. This is essential, since active participation in extensive research and art analyses are both necessary components for effective curatorial procedure. Interviews with art world professionals including museum directors, curators, gallery owners, and independent artists will be conducted, when possible. In addition, customized gifts, calendars, and other products will be available in the near future. Lastly, I am excited to announce that the 2015 publication of my PARIS photo book is now available for purchase. Find it on the following sites: Blurb hardback and e-book editions, Amazon, and in the Apple iBookstore.
Jewel Kismet Designs continues to flourish, thanks to increased visibility through various social media outlets. Please join me on Facebook and Twitter for more frequent updates. Thoroughly embracing these innovative approaches allows art to be discovered from a fresh, modern perspective. It is my hope that active engagement with an international audience not only increases visual arts access to the general public, but also enriches the lives of the globalized community.
Thank you for your support.
Jewel K. Goode, Independent Curator, Photographer, and Educator
