I recently exchanged a few emails with Denise, the personality behind A Girl On A Mission TV. We chatted about possible cross-promotions we might share between us. I didnâ€™t hesitate at all in agreeing to put the word out to our visitors about her show and website. As I stated to her, I have long since stopped caring about whether another art organization or related website is a competitor to SeattleArtists.com, and have adopted the philosophy that sharing local Seattle art information, whatever it may be, is our sole purpose. Similarly, the goal of A Girl On A Mission TV is to highlight local artists in the Seattle area that might not have access to other media.
I think using the community TV concept is a great idea. When I started SeattleArtists.com in 1999, there was barely any access to local art unless you went to a retail gallery. For artists, it was extremely difficult to showcase their artwork unless they had formal representation through a gallery or agent, and there definitely were not any art websites online at the time. The motto at SeattleArtists.com has always been â€œusing digital technology to broaden the reach of local artâ€ and A Girl On A Mission TV fits in nicely to the spirit of that motto. As Denise put it, â€œit seems like we are peas in a podâ€.
