What is unique and interesting about your home studio or art event?
Art Openings creates informative web content using photos, video clips, dialogue and testimonials to tell your story to the world. This webpage info can be imported into your website and/or posted as a link on emails and social media sites. Art Openings also posts your webpage on social media sites like Linkedin, Facebook and Arts Victoria the city’s website. My email list includes 800 plus business, media and cultural contacts.
Art Openings offers a communication service designed to promote your product and skills online.
Based in Victoria, I've created over 150 webpages for local artists and cultural events since 2009. Many of these pages are featured on my recently upgraded website. While profiling 15 artists and organizations funded by the BC Arts Council for their website, I spoke to artists in Russia, Europe and Northern BC.
This professional, personalized service is a cost effective way to achieve permanent, world-wide coverage.
A webpage costs less than a print ad and delivers much more. Your webpage includes at least 10-15 photos and 700 carefully crafted words. Specially designed for web audiences, it’s accessible, informative and visually dynamic. Capturing the lively action in a webpage offers archival material, audience development and community outreach. The cost of this communication service is very reasonable. Please contact me for various services and costs.
POSITIVE FEEDBACK FROM WEBPAGE CLIENTS
A successful partnership between Sunrise Waldorf School and the Robert Bateman Centre in April 2016.
Offerings / Offrandes An installation by France Trépanier

Marie-Andrée Allison at Martin Batchelor Gallery June 6-30, 2015
Photos and comments from June 6 opening are now posted on webpage.
I would like to express my many thanks on the completion of the webpage. Your help has been invaluable on several levels in getting the wheels in motion for my upcoming show. You are a most talented writer and know the ropes. Already, in less than a week, I have had some very positive responses and some new input into the artists' community, which is exciting.
Without your help, even my old friends within said community may not have been aware of my exhibit and more recent work. As an artist I get so absorbed in my work that I forget to think about the management and promotional aspects required for the art world.
Thanks again for the incredible work you've done for me, Marie-Andrée

"You have my sincere gratitude and admiration for all the work you have done for me in the past couple of months. Your sensitivity, positive attitude and knowledge of the public relations and social media have been an enormous boost to my visibility as an artist."
Christine’s Preview Page sent to Art Openings media contacts sparked the interest of Robert Amos, Times Colonist arts columnist and a writer from the Saanich News. Christine sold several paintings via the exhibition.

"I remember long ago hearing something about the Indian residential schools, but never any details or understanding. Such an inexplicable and inconceivable history. And it happened in Canada, of all places! After nearly 84 years, I don't shock easily, but this shred of history did it!"
Towne Bannon, San Diego, USA.
"Kate, I am so touched by going through this beautiful story – so well laid out and clearly described. It brought me to tears. Your artistic perspective so enriches my life." Dorothy Strachan.
"Thanks for sharing this incredible story, Kate. What an amazing project!"

Carole Sabiston's Studio Visit
Hi Kate – thanks very much for including the Pacific Forestry Centre in your webpage. It’s really nice to see all of Carole Sabiston’s work.
Cheers, Vanessa Greebe, Communications at Forestry Centre.
Just SWELL., I trust all our fellow interviewed colleagues will be most happy. Congratulations to YOU for a brilliant concept!
What a wonderful tribute! What A LOT of stitches dear Carole made.
Some beautiful work of hers that I've never seen. That is a treat.
Thank you, Kate. Sara Cassidy.
Well done Kate! I like the look of the site and can appreciate your work involved in creating it. I have to say Carole’s work honoring Carol Shields is very moving! Connie Rese.
“Kate produced a wonderful webpage on our business, Knotty by Nature Fibre Arts. Then she promoted our community-based Fibrations festival which got the attention of local media. After the press release for Fibrations went out, we followed it with an excellent webpage by Kate Cino, which attracted CFAX, the Times Colonist and Check 6 news. Her work is thoughtful, well rounded and very effective, I support this advertising opportunity as I believe it will benefit our outreach.”
Stephanie Papik speaking to the 2013 organizing committee of the First Nations, Metis and Inuit show.
“I just wanted to thank you Kate for this fabulous promotion of the festival! I checked out the rest of your website. Your publicity work is clean, clear and engaging. Well done! I was on the executive of the Federation of Canadian Artists for two years, in charge of Publicity. So I can appreciate the amount of effort that goes into the webpages.”
Visual artist and administrator Sandy Terry.
