There is a new Devon Artist Network website on the way. It will be faster, have an improved user interface and will give us the flexibility to develop exciting ways to take our network forward.
This is a costly investment and we announced at the AGM that changing our membership structure will help the funding. We are announcing a single tier membership, giving all artists a link to their website and a platform to promote their own workshops. So an Artist Membership will be £32 and this will come into effect on 1st January. It will not change any member’s own renewal date. This is an increase for standard members of £12, the first increase in many years. We have had a suggestion that members wishing to donate a sum above the basic membership fee should be able to do so, and this is an idea we will explore.
All current members are asked to check the details and images on our existing site are up to date before the switchover. Poorly lit, low resolution images make it difficult to promote the work. Please look at your images, consult the advice on the website (https://www.devonartistnetwork.co.uk/web/data/dan_resizing_photos-for-dan-website-profile-1.pdf) and let’s see some lovely images of amazing work. Artists must have at least one image of their work on the new site before their name will be visible.
We’re looking forward to an exciting year and can’t wait to be able to show off all the wonderful artwork on our new website.
