On the scene – Getting the word out

Calling all local artists! If you are involved in the visual or performing arts, we invite you to fill out our “Artist Profile” for publication in The Union on Fridays. The drill is that you contact me (at pamj@theunion.com or by phone, 477-4232) and let me know you are interested. I then e-mail you the form and you e-mail it back all filled out. Attach a jpg mug shot or bring one into The Union, or we’ll make an appointment to have your photograph taken. This is a great way to get the word out about your next show or gig ” or just to get community recognition.

Lousy weather wrecked havoc with attendance at the fabulous Robert Burns Celebration in Nevada City Saturday night, but the performance of music, singing, recitation, and acting was worth getting wet for.

Dancers, me included, who participated in the beginning Salsa workshop at St. Joseph’s Saturday morning got just the tip of the iceberg of this fun form of dancing, but it’s a bet that many will want to continue honing their skills. The community of Salsa is building here, can’t you feel it?

A reminder about submitting photos by e-mail: jpg, 150 dpi and large (4 inches by 6 inches, or larger, please). Also, please caption them so no mistakes are made in identifying people.

What happens if your only photo is on your Web site? Bad news, because 99 percent of the time they are too small for us to use and they are only 72 dpi, rather than the 150 dpi we need. Solution?

Perhaps a Union photographer can take the photo, either here at our 464 Sutton Way, Grass Valley office or on site. Both are by appointment, so call me at 477-4232.

We have expanded the Prospector’s Mark Your Calendar feature to give heads up on things to come ” this for those folks who have day planners. Any comments about it? Are we going far enough out?
