Lakeland has one of the largest exhibition/gallery spaces in the county. I am so excited to see the artists and their creations. I look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new (to me) and emerging artists.
In an attempt to "Go Green" and save money on sending out applications to a mailing list that is not artist based... I am emailing my contacts and artists the information and asking them to "pass it on". The entry fees will fund the awards. The more artworks that are submitted= larger (and more) prizes.
I chose 2 other jurors, along with myself, to judge the artworks and award cash prizes and honorable mention certificates.
