Since August 1st, 2013, Artists of Galway have got a new website, called www.artistsofgalway.com. This new venture will give great opportunity to many younger and older talented artists in Galway to display their works on the worldwide web. “We are giving this digital experiment about three months to see if artists will take to it, and if it proves as popular as the literary page in the Galway Advertiser we will endeavour to keep it going,” said Uinseann Mac Thómais, the founder of this website and the General Administrator of the Galway Review. Artists from all of the genres can submit work by email through firstname.lastname@example.org or inquire by text to 0833284079.
The team of www.artistsofgalway.com are now embarking on a new trawl to find the hidden artists, photographers, sketchers and cartoonists of Galway and are inviting sample submissions from artists of all genres with a view to having a co-operative that will help in the sales and promotion of such artistic creations.
“It’s a truism to say that if you are not on the web, you do not exist, certainly in a commercial context, and because of Galway’s hidden talent, we felt that www.artistsofgalway.com would act as a boost and encouragement for people who might like the opportunity of turning their talent into potentially new income stream. We hope that the artists of Galway will seize the opportunity,” said the web-master of this new venture Ndrek Gjini. The website was launched on 1 August 2013 and has already achieved a significant number of visits.
