I'm thrilled that Chicago Gallery News (CGN) has joined ChicagoNow and will be reaching members of the art world in new ways!
All this posting and tweeting and Facebooking makes me realize I actually need about 8 more hours in my day to get everything done, but social networking really has become one of the most fun, interactive parts of my job as publisher of CGN, and it makes me enjoy connecting to the art world even more.
I hadn't made a new year's resolution yet, really because I guess I never do. However, the start of this blog does correspond nicely with the start of 2010, and it follows our efforts to give our print magazine a greater online presence.
Most of what we're trying to do with this blog is in our handy About page, but to really get to know us, follow our posts each week, and leave comments and ask us questions. CGN has long been a cheerleader for the art community, so anything we can do to make people appreciate and engage with our galleries, artists and institutions more, we're happy to start talking!
