Quite frankly, since we're a non-profit organization, we're on a pretty tight budget. In other words, no one will get rich doing this (they would receive gas money, a small stipend and our undying gratitude)! BUT, it is a chance to spread around some art appreciation, reach a fresh & eager audience, and get some free publicity.
Just a little info about us: An average adult program draws 35-50 people (but we've had as many as 100); average age 45. They are a friendly bunch who ask lots of questions. They prefer a casual, interactive program as opposed to a strict lecture. Most programs are scheduled on weeknights at 6:30pm, but we are also open on Saturday mornings.

National cable television program to feature Fort Wayne artist!
(Fort Wayne, IN)—The crew of Home & Garden Television’s (HGTV) That's Clever!, a daily, half-hour series that highlights the contemporary crafting scene from Portland, Maine to Portland, Ore., will spend Dec. 20-21 in Fort Wayne, Ind., taping a segment about the feather necklace sets created by Robbin L. Melton, a local African American jewelry and fiber artist.
Melton is one of three crafters to be featured on an upcoming episode.
That’s Clever! issued a call for crafters in the Indianapolis area to submit their work for consideration. Melton was outside that radius, but submitted images anyway and the program’s producer decided to include her work.
Melton, who creates jewelry under the name Bibelots, also spins her own yarn that she weaves and crochets into wearable art. Examples of Melton’s jewelry can be seen online at www.bibelots.net.

Robbin, we look forward to announcing when the show will air!
Now we want to hear from you! Artists, what are you up to? Art lovers, whose work do you love and why? Come and share your view of Fort Wayne's visual artists.
