International Voices-Speaking Through Art. Woven into this group of international artists, is a deep and varied pool of unique and extraordinary talents, who seek real and valuable change in the world around them. CFAI works with Artists Gifting the World. A small portion of the funds raised through membership fees and events will directly benefit a rotating list of global charities, and through the energy and creativity of our membership, we will work toward making a visible and lasting difference. Also provided for our artists is a list of notable charities that serve the world’s greatest needs, allowing each individual artist direct links to charities of their choice.
CFAI will do heavy brand marketing and advertising of member artists. We intend to benefit our member community—through promotion, mentoring, and exposure to a much larger audience—so that we can benefit our global community. Through our new innovative gallery site, members have the opportunity to sell their original artwork, and art collectors are able to purchase through our secured online payment system using Paypal. Artists will learn valuable self-branding techniques for appealing to today’s marketplace and make new connections for work and referrals. Our future annual gatherings will feature classes taught not only by world-renowned artists, but also by marketing strategists and attending gallery owners, offering opportunities to network and to learn from those in the know—lighting the steps along the path to take the blank canvas to the gallery wall and into the home of the collector.
