If you have followed my Blogs, you know that I believe that collaboration is a great business practice for just about any kind of business.
A few weeks ago I wrote a story that was published on Whidbey Local about the Whidbey Art Gallery, a collaborative venture in Downtown Langley for several local artists.
After the story appeared, I received a phone call from Judith Burns who handles the publicity for Artworks Gallery at Greenbank Farm. She asked if I could write a story about Artworks Gallery.
My response: of course!
Like Whidbey Art Gallery, Artworks Gallery is a collaborative that requires each participating artist to share in the operation and management of the gallery. In exchange, the artist gets to show his/her art in an attractive setting, without having to pay for a space or all of the other expenses of being a single business owner.
Collaboration benefits the shopper, as well as the business owner. Having several businesses at a single address, or near to each other (as in a business community that promotes a location) makes it much easier for a shopper to check out many choices.
