| This site sponsors each artist on a page of his
or her own for a fraction of the cost of a full web site. On
your page you can have images of your work and you can include
text which says exactly what you want to say. The work of
posting the website and your page is done for you by the
webmaster and editor of the site, Eleanor Binder.
- Step One: "How
does this work?" you are probably wondering. It is a
very simple procedure. We start with images. You can
scanned images to Eleanor, or your slides or photos for Eleanor to scan. If you
don't yet have photos of your work Eleanor will be happy to
photograph your work for you, for a nominal fee to cover
transportation, film and processing costs.
- Step Two:
is to decide what you would like to say on your page. You
may want to speak of your philosophy of art, describe and
explain your influences, or you may simply want to describe
the title, dimensions and price of the work. This is left
completely up to you. Eleanor will take dictation over the
phone, or you can
your text to her.
- Step Three:
is now up to Eleanor to take your images and text, format
them into the correct configuration and post this on the
site. You are also invited to choose a style from our if you are so inclined. From the time of
receipt of your images and text to getting them up onto the
site in a complete state should take about a week or two.
Voila. You are now on the internet. Of
course there is a small fee attached to the service. A low
monthly price of $10.00 will be charged. For those of you who
like to save money, the yearly fee is $100.00. Please read on to
discover the other services offered with this website.
- Your web page comes with full, daily
maintenance. If you want to change your page, or add new
images to it, every once in a while, that will be included
in the price. Perhaps you would like to change your
text every now and then. That is also included in the price.
- You have the option of ordering coded
programming on your page which will disable surfers on the
site from saving your images into their computers. A
copyright disclaimer will be included so that the surfer

plan is to include names and addresses, phone numbers of art

- A plan for the near future is to
of the environs of the Rideau Valley area and place your
studio or work place on the map, so that art enthusiasts can
find you more easily when they are on their Sunday drive
away from the city. This endeavor will be made into a tour,
and will include business hours for visits from the general
