The Whole 9

I just attended a great workshop by Ashley McLean Emenegger of McLean Fine Art at The Whole 9 gallery in Culver City on the business of being an artist. The Whole 9, aside from being a cool gallery space with informative workshops, is also a great website where you can create an online portfolio, look for jobs and events, and network with local creative people. Check it out at thewhole9.com.

And if you’re still into surfing the internet afterwards, stop by my website extraordinaryworldcreations.com to browse through photographs and hear music by the Venice Arts Club!
