Artist of the Week
While my paintings obviously are "about" people, to me the specific figures on the canvas are secondary to the visual impact I am seeking through line, tone and color. I like to think in musical terms as I design a work: rhythm, tempo, counterpoint. In fact, as I paint, I often play and replay music appropriate to the "beat" I am reaching for: jazz, concert, band or ethnic pieces. Sometimes the figures swirl, sometimes they seem almost still. But they always should "pulse" through variations in scale, color and value. Above all, in the end there must be one "total gesture" integrating the entire canvas. ( Without that I would have a bunch of disconnected "notes" but no "song". ) The total gesture provides vitality, conveying mood and emotion to the viewer.

are an online arts community. Our network of artists, galleries, museums and art
organizations each help the other. Our Web site provides a comprehensive directory,
allowing easy access to a wealth of information involving the Florida arts community.
The size of our directory, the volume of artwork in portfolios and the activity
on our message board all contribute to a strong impact on the Internet and in
the arts community. Cross-linking is one of the strongest contributing factors
to ranking well in search engines, and gaining additional access channels to our
Web site Press releases about area art events are sent to me daily, from around
the state. I distribute this information to a broader audience, on their behalf,
through this newsletter.
Artists Registry.com first took form in 1999. The Web site began with
twelve founding member artists and a free listing of artists, galleries, organizations
and museums from around the state. These twelve artists believed that we could
help promote their artwork on the Internet, and Florida Artists Registry.com was
born. Next we had to prove to you that this concept would work, and we have. Our
membership has grown steadily. This past year has shown our greatest growth. With
the addition of our arts message board and e-mail newsletter, interest in the
Registry has grown phenomenally. We now enjoy a top ranking in all the major search
engines. We have found that art Websites from around the state are linking to
our Web site Our focus is on bringing you attention. With the added attention
our Web site brings to you, you should have increased sales and additional exhibition
Dear Jeff Shonkwiler,
Thank you for posting an ad of my most recent exhibition in April 2011 in your weekly newsletter. The post about my exhibition has generated two sales from one client. I appreciate all that you and your Web site has done for me.
Thank you so much for your hosting events for the 6th Annual Orlando Puppet Festival last Fall.
In 2010, OPF continued its tradition of bringing world-class puppetry to the Central Florida community. With your help, we brought together a season of live performances, workshops, a gallery exhibit, and produced a singular track of new and vintage puppetry-related films within the Orlando Film Festival.
Your contribution to the 2010 OPF was invaluable and deeply appreciated.
Thank you for your service to our arts community.
Last Thursday's event (6th Annual Artists Registry Members Exhibit) was very special. I just want to thank you and tell you what a big difference you and your vision make to all of us.
I wanted to share the good news with you because without the registry this would not have happened. It has only been a couple of weeks since I upgraded to Portfolio membership I have been invited to show 24 of my photographs at the Seminole State College art gallery for 3 weeks this coming Oct./Nov. In addition, I have also been selected by the owner of a new gallery in St. Augustine who wants to represent me and to exhibit a collection of my paintings for a 3 month inaugural exhibition starting the first friday next month. I will keep you posted.
I feel very fortunate to having met you and subsequently becoming a member of Artists Registry.
I know that Florida Artists Registry was very helpful in the recent acquisition of two large oil paintings by the VINOY RENAISSANCE HOTEL in St. Petersberg, FL. Many thanks.

Just wanted you to know that because of you and your fabulous website, I've been picked up by a great gallery in Marco Island. Amantea Gallery owner and photographer, Kathleen Douglas has opened her second gallery (first in Boston) at the Old Marco Inn Shoppes at 190 Royal Palm Drive, Marco Island. I'm thrilled at being the featured artist at the Grand Opening and Reception scheduled for Wednesday, April 23rd. Thanks again.
Thank you very much! Your website has been very successful for my art. Recently I was contacted by the new curator for the Naples Art Museum and will be included in an exhibition in June.
I just want to take this opportunity to thank Artists Registry for giving artists exposure. I have been selected by Art Exchange.com to participate in the New York Art EXPO-2009. They originally viewed my artwork through ARTISTS REGISTRY.com. One never knows who is looking at the artwork on the registry. Thank you for your part in making this happen.
