Time Out for ART Politics
If you can take a minute to show your support of art and let our government know, maybe we can grow.

One situtation here in Maine that effects artists is the "re-seller's" license. They have recently changed the criteria that allows a business to possess one, specifically your business must earn $15,000 annually. So, a small artist, crafter or street artist trying to make a living with collage or painting, wood carving etc would not be allowed to purchase art materials at wholesale costs to support their business without this license they can't afford to be artists and buy their materials, it's shooting us in the foot! There has to be a solution that will support the artist. Not all of us can be Walmart and have huge sales, nor should we.
We need art in our schools and in our communities.
SUPPORT THE ARTS. Thank you!
