Special Spots in Alberta - Through the Eyes of Its Artists
Our EDMONTON book has been selling fairly steady throughout the summer. Our book can now be found at the Edmonton Public Library. They ordered 6 copies! Sales have been steady at Tix At The Square and at Audrey's Book store.
The tentative deadline for our next book's submissions is Monday, September 13th. Possible title for this book is SPECIAL SPOTS OF ALBERTA - Through the Eyes of its Artists. We hope you have had some fun capturing Alberta with your favorite medium. Send a High res photo of your work to firstname.lastname@example.org and please include your name, artwork title, size, medium and a one-paragraph blurb about the piece - what inspired you, a bit of history about the subject matter, general knowledge info about the location, etc. If it can be educational, all the better! Remember, the artwork does not have to be recent, so go through your past pieces and see if you have already captured a scene of Alberta that will be perfect for the book. All members (including General members) are able to submit up to 5 pieces of artwork towards this juried project.
A recommendation: When titling your work, please use actual names found in Alberta. The Jurors only get the photo and the name of the piece to go by. If you paint a road and call it "The Road", it will have a far less chance for getting chosen to go in the book as compared to calling it "Road to Pigeon Lake."
BOOK COMMITTEE MEETING: Interested in being part of this committee? We will have our first meeting of the year Tuesday, September 7 at 1:00 pm at Signworks Plus 15607 - 100A Ave. Please RSVP to Eveline at 780-489-1028 so she'll know how much coffee/tea to have ready!
Remember, the deadline to submit work for the Alberta book is Monday, September 13, 2021
