(SitNews) Ketchikan, Alaska - Artists seeking to make a sustainable and livable income may wish to attend a 10 a.m. meeting Monday, the 23rd at The Point. Cheri and Terry Pyles are hosting the meeting for local artists to meet and hear about the 40 North Artists proposal to market select local artists throughout the United States. 

40 North Artists, a company owned by Patricia Burkman of Ketchikan, will launch January 2019. According to Burkman there is no costs associate with being included in the marketing campaign, but not everyone will be selected saying, “We are looking for only forty artists of diverse backgrounds, styles, and forms, those artists will be allowed between one and five pieces to be premiered in a print catalog and up to 20 pieces in an online catalog”. 

The competition, which has been ongoing since February, will soon come to a close with the cut off date of April 30, 2018. Judging and selection of the 40 artists will take place during the first week of May. Announcements of those selected will quickly follow.
