DFS markets local artists

Guam - Local artists now have a chance to market their work to shoppers at DFS Galleria through the Guam Unique Merchandise and Arts incubator program. DFS Guam managing director Jim Beighley says it's more than selling keychains with the word "Guam" that are made in China; rather, bringing locally produced and crafted Guam products into the galleria.

"We're going to be going through a selection process for the next 60 to 90 days of artists we'd want to bring in who would like to be a part of this incubator program," he said.

For the last 30 years the company has featured Guam artists, but the GUMA program takes it to the next level. Beighley says they hope to incubate a jeweler/craftsman, a painter, and a food producer in the coming months.
