Like every other day, I went to check my Artist Facebook page. I was surprised to find a message in my inbox from a showcase director with an organization called RAW artist. As an artist, I probably should have known them, but I had no idea (not proud about that :().
Here are parts of her message, which by the way all this happened about a week ago:
“… I’m the Miami showcase director of an arts organization called RAW: natural born artists, RAW is an indie arts organization for artists, by artists. We focus on spotlighting indie underground talent to the public. Every month we hand-select and showcase 40 artists in film, fashion, music, visual art, photography, accessories, performing art, hair, and makeup.
RAW operates in 80+ cities worldwide, including Miami!…
… I came across your work on Etsy and I think your work is fantastic! I love how colorful your work is.
I’m hereby officially selecting you for the showcase!!”
After I read this, you could imagine how I felt. I was thrilled, to say the least, to get an invitation for this event. We set up a phone call meeting. I was impressed with all the tools this organization provides to the artist and how unique they are. They give us a profile page in their website, here’s mine. They also bring media, photographers and film makers to create a video about the artist, (like an interview, which I am a bit nervous about! I hope I don’t get brain freeze :(, if you know what i mean). As they say in their website:
“Our RAW Directors hand-pick and spotlight local artistic talent in film, fashion, music, visual art, hair & makeup artistry, and performance art. With artists from all genres in each showcase, RAW events come together to form an amazing one-night circus of creativity.”
