ST. LOUIS - July 15, 2016 - PRLog -- The Whistle Stop Gallery announces the Quoted Project and Quoted crowdfunding campaign. This campaign is unusual in that the Project will be completed, regardless of the crowdfunding campaign's outcome. "Of course, I would really appreciate meeting our modest goal," Mr. Langley says, "but regardless, the Quoted Project will move forward as promised." The Project has already begun, in fact. You can visit what Mr. Langley refers to as 'The Big List' right now at:

Mr. Langley proposes a very unusual concept. People are asked to contribute $1 to the campaign, and in exchange they "get to finish a sentence." This sentence will be displayed on the Whistle Stop Gallery web site in list form, and as a random selection on certain pages with what Mr. Langley mysteriously refers to as "the randomizer." The sentence Joseph A. Langley wants finished begins with 'art is.'

A successful campaign will allow Mr. Langley to lead the Gallery into a new, artist-friendly method of operating juried art shows. Artists would need to pay only $5 per artwork, if that work was accepted. Entry fees can add up quickly," Langley states, "making it too expensive for some artists to get the exposure they deserve. I want to change that. If everyone chips in just $1, I can make this happen."

Another part of the Quoted Project is even more unusual than the first. If the Quoted Project crowdfunding campaign exceeds its very modest $1436 goal by about 140%, the Gallery's next web show will be free for artists to participate. "By making web art shows free to enter and free to display, artists will have equal opportunity to have their artwork seen by the world." Langley's Whistle Stop Gallery also takes no commission on sales resulting from the gallery's web shows.

"If the Whistle Stop Gallery Quoted crowdfunding campaign receives $100,000 in backing, every web show, starting this year, will always be free for artists to participate. Each and every one of those shows will also award a $250 Best of Show prize." That sounds like a tall order, but one Mr. Langley is determined to fill.
