Another quick e-mail this month just to touch base with you all… We’ve got a couple of cool things coming up (be sure and read our October newsletter!) but for the moment we just want to update you on a few things our artists are doing, and ask you to VOTE not just in the 2020 election, but NOW for Ghostwolf for the “Best of Burque”! You’ve only got a couple of days left (just two!), and we could sure use all the love we can get! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
We’re also participating in the City of Albuquerque’s “Grab & Go” initiative to promote local businesses. We very much appreciate the city putting this together, and hope you will all check it out, if not to grab some of the great stuff our artists will be listing, but that of other local businesses that can use the boost!
Thank you as always for your amazing support!
Be well, & live artfully!
-Amy & The Ghostwolf Gang
BEST OF BURQUE: PLEASE VOTE!
Yep. It’s that time again, and the great news is, The Alibi has changed their voting format, and you only have to vote ONCE! Head on over to the Alibi’s site and support your local ‘Burque Businesses (we hope you’ll include us!) at a time they really need you most! Voting closes on the 9th of September, so you only have a couple of days. Thank you, as always for your undying support. We promise to let you know just how much we appreciate it when we can all get back together again and enjoy some great art and great company (and maybe a little wine…)!
CITY OF ALBUQUERQUE GRAB & GO!
We may have to update this information for you all, but we wanted to make sure it made the newsletter. In an effort to support local business, the City of Albuquerque is introducing “Grab & Go” events. Each event will have a different focus. We’re participating in the one aimed at promoting local Artisans. Within the next week or so, the website found here will be updated with product pages from all sorts of local Artists, offering a wide range of goodies. Our artists will have anything from fun sticker packs and t-shirts to original paintings, and we expect other local businesses will offer anything from handcrafted soaps to furnishings! All you have to do is get online and shop to your heart’s content, then pick up your goodies on the date specified. Masked city employees will be there to make this a winner in the social-distancing category, and you’ll be supporting all of your favorite local artists to boot! When they start to get the site updated, we’ll send out another quick email with additional details! We thank the city greatly for continuing to try and find innovative ways to support us all. We’re gonna’ get through this yet!
