The fog has lifted and the sun is out today; clarity for me reveals new possibilities. After a year of masks, social distancing, temperature checks, and now vaccines, we are poking into a post-COVID life that brings a fresh vision to reimagine challenges. Part of my job is to discover innovative ways to elevate each FADA Member's program and to create meaningful collaborations that reflect FADA's stature in the art community.
We’re getting back to a new normal. In our personal lives. In our professional lives. Here at FADA, too. Over the past year we've ramped up digital outreach: social media - website marketing - member and database communications, and expanded the length of membership to include a bonus year, 2021. Now we can take a careful look and refine our long term mission. We have some resources. I have ideas. You do as well. More on that will be addressed and discussed at our Zoom General Membership Meeting next month. Look for an email meeting notice.
I always ask myself, “WHAT IS THE BENEFIT?” The benefit of making a particular trip, the benefit of watching a movie, the benefit of visiting a museum and the benefit of going to an art show. And, the benefit of FADA. My brief answer to the latter: Being a selected member of an esteemed peer group of respected gallerists - each with expertise in their specialty - is a preeminent professional distinction.
It is a time to reimagine. Please be a force - let us find our mutual light - and stay the course together. We are, for sure, Greater than the Sum of Our Art®.
