Letter: Business Owner Plans Art Project
Art and Frame Emporium wants to display art in empty storefronts.
To the Editor:
My name is Edward Turner. I am a professional artist and a new store owner. I own the Art and Frame Emporium in Westborough and I have, as a profession, illustrated for over 25 years now.
I am working close with the landlord to create a unique show for this spring. I am in charge of a small number of unrented storefronts in our mall. I am now looking to enhance the storefronts with original art.
This is where you step in. Are you interested in showing your work with my help in hopes to sell it?
This is the event. It's title will be "Art and The Marathon." The committee from Hopkinton (the town that has the marathon starting line) is working with me to create a venue for this. It is coming up in April.
I plan on housing and watching over a giant mall gallery setting - under lock and key - in the window space of all the empty stores. I have already had some success running the windows so far. I would really love some help filling the space. I will rep you and try to sell you work if you would like as well. This also gives artists a huge opportunity to show off their work.
I would like any art that is out there that involves a running theme. Are you interested? Please email or call me if you are.
Let me know if you are soon. I'd love to get you on board.
