ANNOUNCING A UNIQUE ADVERTISING OPPORTUNITY!
SAMA’s Publications Team is working on two new offerings for SAMA Members and the International mosaic art community to be launched at the 2017 Vendor Marketplace in Detroit, MI during the 2017 American Mosaic Summit! A limited run of these publications will be created and we are inviting suppliers, artists, instructors and institutions a special introductory offer for business card size ad insertions in both of the “first run” print issues!
GROUTLINE: The 2016 Anthology
SAMA will be introducing its first annual PRINT edition of Groutline 2016! The four-issue compilation will be for sale at the American Mosaic Summit in Detroit May 2-6 and afterwards online in the SAMA store. Groutline has not been professionally printed since 2011 and many current members have requested we bring the printed issues back. Time is limited to take advantage of this rare opportunity to participate in a commemorative print version of a year of Groutline.
AN ADDED BONUS PUBLICATION INSERTION!
Advice from the SAMA Pros (Volume I): The Business of Mosaic Art
As a special offer, you will get a bonus insertion of your ad in the premiere print publication of a new SAMA series—Advice from the SAMA Pros (Volume I): The Business of Mosaic Art—which will also be available for purchase in Detroit (a $25 advertising value!). This is the first in a series of volumes that pull from the Groutline Archives and present a cohesive treatment of topics related to the technical, professional and artistic development of mosaic artists.
Future Volumes we are planning include:
- Exhibitions- how to enter and present yourself properly
- Shipping- preparing your art to withstand the rigors of shipping
- Commissions- find them, get them, and complete them with a minimum of anxiety.
- Installations- stories from the field with solutions to various problems that may occur.
- Design and Color Theory- tips for picking grout color, the effects of light on your mosaic, using digital technology to help you design,
- Studios- how to run safe and efficient workspaces
- Tools, Tesserae, Grout and Framing
- Starting a Regional Mosaic Society
- Recommended Resources- print and online for each category
- Step by Step- a compilation of projects created by our professional members that break down the process in photos and instruction
We will be offering advertising space in these publications to both professional vendors as well as artists of any ability. SAMPLE ADS BELOW
