ArtsLink takes over

A few months ago Tim Anderson, proprietor of, emailed a note to participating artists talking about how he had taken the website as far as he was able. Talk had begun with OM’s ArtsLink to see if Geinene and her staff in Atlanta would be willing to take over and improve MissionaryArts, which has been online since 2003 . I didn’t say anything at the time since nothing was in stone, and speculation on such things is outside of the scope of this blog.


Today I received confirmation that negotiations are complete. An email from Tim Anderson today describes how this was a difficult decision for him — he co-founded the website — but how it is also best for the endeavor to move ahead:

    “This decision hasn’t been easy for me. But as you know, my involvement and resources has been limited — especially this past year — and I feel in order for the gallery to grow to its intended potential, someone else has to step in and take it. I believe OM is that someone. They have the personnel, the resources and the vision to really help it grow.”

The transition will take place on the first of January.
