Facebook and Artists

Area artists will be able to take advantage of the upcoming seminar, "Facebook and Artists", to be presented by Ypsilanti artist and educator Dee Overly. The Riverside Art Center will host the half-day event on two separate dates: July 25 and August 8, 2009.

Facebook, as well as other social networking sites, can be valuable tools for art marketing. This is a how-to seminar, during which Dee will provide specific ways for artists to utilize Facebook to capitalize on their online presence. More details and registration information can be obtained at .

For the time being I will be remaining somewhat Facebook-illiterate ................ what with the Atlanta CPSA Convention Week looming on the horizon, followed by a three-person show that I'm in (rather frantic) preparations for. I have attended Dee's seminars previously however and highly recommend them: both for the comprehensive nature of the material presented, as well as its practical application.


  1. Hi Lynda, I am delighted to have found your blog. Your work is stunning!! I shall be in Atlanta next week as well and I look forward to seeing your work in person at the gallery. If our paths cross, I shall introduce myself and say hi!

  2. Teresa; thanks so much for your kind words, and likewise. I remember your piece in Seattle, and I must have come across your website some time ago because I have seen "Swiss Chard Mosaic" previously also. Very nice work. Please do look for me in Atlanta, and I will watch for you also!

  3. Hi Lynda, I was just viewing some of your artwork - WOW - really love it! I subscribed to your blog and will take your advice to check out the Toledo museum.

  4. Hey Lily - how ARE you? Thanks so much; and you would love the Toledo Museum of Art. It was the first time I had been there and I was so pleasantly surprised.

  5. Hi Lynda,

    I took Dee's seminar Saturday and have implimented much of it already. I spent all day today fiddling with everything! Was fun. Need to get back to painting now. I hope your show is fabulous!
