As we prepare for the upcoming Fresh Ideas Competition and Exhibit Colleen G. Drew will be giving a demo as well as tips for photographing your artwork for submission. You will want to have a really good representation of your work to submit for the jury process for Fresh Ideas. Many of you also submit to other shows as well so it should be helpful for those too. She will also answer some questions about Cafe, the website that we use for submission. Please take a look at their website callforentry.org and have some questions ready! Entry will be open soon !!
