It is almost a year now since I have been working with St Marys Station Gallery. I joined on initially to redo their website and help the curator get things done and support the curator in his mandate. One of the first needs this year seemed to be getting more funding. We do get some funding from the city of St. Marys but it is not enough for us to do what we want for the gallery.
I have designed a donor wall for the inside of our gallery and we already have donors for 2020. I am doing some design layouts for posters and postcards for exhibits and Cameron our curator and I have worked on a new logo shown above.
At the beginning of the year our Facebook Page was at about 120 followers. We are now around 450 followers and growing. Usually when I create a post and share it, we reach about 2000 people. By next month, we will have hit 5000 visitors to our website over the year.
It has been a time of learning Mailchimp for our mail outs. Setting up a opt in form on our website for subscribing to our emails from a landing page. All stuff I didn't know how to do initially but figured out how. That's what I love about working with the Gallery. I have autonomy to do what is needed to bring more visitors in and engage more people in the community. I love to learn and stretch my brain. I will never stop learning. I started working with computer software in the late 1980s and internet design in the early 1990s. I am wired to combine both my artistic and technological background. Its fun being in a sandbox....again.
I look forward to 2020 and further successes.
