Internet Rivers: Art
The internet has created a large number of exciting new avenues for artists to share their work with the public at large. One of the primary reason for my creating the community color collection of web sites was to promote art in the community. Community Color has artists directories for several towns in Utah and Colorado. It also includes Missoula and Bend.
If you live in any of these communities. Please feel free to add a free link to the directory. If you do not live in the communities served please feel free to add a link in this global arts directory.
