With the help of a hired designer, I learned how to create a web site. I also learned how to stabilize the surface of large scale graphite drawings by applying a thin layer of wax over the drawing. Overall, both of these projected outcomes were very successful. I also completed two exhibitions, one largely serving a St Paul audience and the other in Minneapolis. 2: I used the web site as a part of the promotional materials that I assembled and sent to a wide range of galleries, art consultants and art dealers. While the overall effectiveness is still undetermined, i.e. I have not yet received any commitments from this activity regarding the sale or exhibition of my work, I do believe as a professional practice this activity is critical. Ongoing engagement and follow-up is taking place, from this perspective the activity was highly valuable as a promotional tool.
