Call for Art and Artist!

Hello my friends, I am a marketing coordinator that’s looking to connect to those that are looking to express themselves.  I’m looking to link up with an art promoter / promoters that are looking to do a show or a series of shows at my downtown venue.  The venue is known as Phantom Lounge. We are located at 1021 E Colonial Dr, Orlando, FL 32803. We have had Art shows in the past, but I am looking to expand on that concept. 

Please inbox me.
