The Spirit of Giving Show Changes
I've received an email this weekend saying that there weren't enough entries for a juried competition for the show, The Spirit of Giving, at the Everett Artists' Supply and Framing. How disappointing! I had done the work, The Offering, to submit to this show. However, they have offered to refund our entry fee and do a group show of the entrants with the same terms of a portion of any sale to be donated to the causes stated. Since I haven't found any other local competitions to submit this work to, I think I am going to let the work hang in their show. It is better to be in a group show now than to just have it hang out in my studio until another show materializes. They are a small store, that had recently changed hands and location and are working really hard to make their place happen. This was to be their first juried competition! There are a lot of holiday shows going on this time of year. I guess they weren't able to get the word out to enough artists in time. So now that I've decided to go ahead and show it, I'd better get my frame ordered!
