Online PR News – 27-November-2012 – Herndon, Virginia – Female Photographers of Etsy (fPOE) today announced it is hosting a Virtual Holiday Art Show November 28-29. The group invites anyone who loves photography to attend this limited time online art gallery which will feature fine art photography for sale from 13 outstanding fPOE photographers. Many participating photographers will be donating 10 percent of their sales to Red Cross Relief for Hurricane Sandy.
The fPOE Virtual Holiday Art Show will open with a preview on Wednesday, November 28 from 7pm to 10pm EST. The photographs on exhibit will be available for purchase on Thursday, November 29 from 7pm to 10pm EST. On Thursday, there will be hourly raffles ($75 or more) at 7pm, 8pm and 9pm EST and a grand prize raffle ($200 or more) at 10pm EST.
Anita Miller, fPOE member and photographer/owner, Nature’s Images by Design, is organizing the Virtual Holiday Show art exhibit and sale.
“I’m so proud of the creative work fPOE photographers are doing and have been thinking for some time about hosting a virtual art show,” said Miller. “The idea has become a reality thanks to the hard work of participating members and we could not be more excited. Whether you enjoy fine art landscape photography, nature photography, portrait photography, still life photography or abstract photography, there will be something for everyone.”
The fPOE Virtual Holiday Art Show not only showcases contemporary fine art photography but is stretching the boundaries of what is possible for a virtual art show. “Normally this type of event showcases two or three artists,” noted Miller. “With 13 photographers, we’re offering a wonderful opportunity for collectors to see a wide range of work from multiple artists in one setting and from the comfort of their homes.”
Participating photographers will benefit from exposure beyond what they would get with a one man show, since fans of one photographer will almost certainly stay to see the work of others. This kind of collaborative spirit is a hallmark of fPOE. The organization was established in early 2009 as a small group who reached out to one another as a form of support, ideas and feedback. According to Miller, although fPOE has grown to almost 800 members from the United States and around the world, it has retained a spirit of sharing and support.
Virtual Holiday Art Show photographers are Anita Miller, Nature’s Images by Design; Eva Ricci, Eva Ricci Studio; Andrea Baker, AnCar Photography Originals; Ashleigh A. Coyner, BleuOiseau Photography; Abra Alani Cole, Abra Alani Photography; Claudia Willison, ImagesByCW; Ivy Ho, AngsanaSeeds Photography; Angela Burtraw, Angela Rose Photography; Gidget Clayton, Gidget Clayton Photography; Angie Rea, Beneath Northern Skies; Karen Webb, Karen Webb Photography; Melissa Lund, Melissa Lund Photography and Angie Turner, Laughter and Love Photography.
