Artist Relations Newsletter - Edition #21 Director of Artist RelationsArtist Relations Newsletter - Edition #21 by $Moonbeam13
The purpose of Artist Relations is to strengthen the community spirit as well as network with fellow artists so that we may bring outside opportunities to you, and help you to hone your skills. The Gallery Directors are the first people you should go to regarding your galleries. They are the people you need to make gallery suggestions to, and ask questions about your specific genre, or seek knowledge from. They also act as your lifeline to the administration. They are here to support and listen, and I can tell you we've got incredibly talented, devoted and passionate people on this team, so get to know them!

The Misfits Halloween
After last years spooktacular success, deviantART is absolutely horrified to bring you Be Afraid 2006 Photography Contest, a photography contest for all you creatures of the night. I 'm going to be doing things a bit differently though this year. Last year I wanted to be scared, well I still do, but this year your focus will be on Halloween in general. Be it the spooks that go bump in the night, the boogy man or the more festive/seasonal scenes that make up the holiday. What does Halloween mean to you?
