There is a quiet promoter on the Brooklyn Art Projects site who  often sends artist opportunities to me via Brooklyn Art Projects mail. You can join Brooklyn Art Projects and perhaps find this maven and connect to get his updates direct. Yes, I have invited him to write quest posts for my Artist Marketing Resources blog. (Many times over the past two years, and he has an interest but is uncertain what he would write about.) Here are a 3 of the latest opportunities that he has sent my way:

Star Artist & Writer For Hire

I run a great multi-user art studio in a well maintained DUMBO loft space.

We are Studio Milo (named for my son) and we are home to mature and quiet artists, writers, jewelers, and designers. The building is safe and secure with gorgeous views of the river and Manhattan Bridge, 24/7 access, freight elevator and clean bathrooms. Rent includes wireless and all utilities. No hidden costs.

We have 2 spaces opening up on April 1 and are showing them now:

One is a desk space that rents for $240 and is perfect for a writer.

Another is a space with a lovely view of the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges that rents for $320. If you are interested, please email studiomilo at and check out our website at Best, Diana
