>Email this Artist
This feature is found in the Actions box on the right side of Profiles. It is a removable feature.
Email this Artist allows registered users to send a blind email to the Profile owner. Someone who looks at an artist's profile and wants to contact that person can do so through the Email this Artist feature. This allows for curators, gallerists, other artists or arts professionals to communicate with anyone in the ArtSlant system in an anonymous manner.
The Profile owner's email address is never made public.
The person sending the email must provide their contact information in their email. Then the Profile artist can either respond to or ignore the email.
Email this Artist allows people to express an interest in buying, exhibiting or seeing more of the artist's work. It also allows members from the ArtSlant community a chance to contact each other in a protected system.
To turn off this feature, go into Edit Basic Profile in the Change box on the right of your profile page. Remove your email address. This way, the "email this Artist" function will not work and no one can email you from your Profile.
