We normally try to have our new exhibit calendar announced each December, but things got a bit hectic, maybe there was a bit of eggnog involved, and suddenly it was January 2012. Oops! But fear not, we have your art itches covered through the end of this calendar year, or at least, until the Zombie Apocalypse ends the calendar year a week early.

Check out our 2012 EBSQ Art Exhibition Calendar!

EBSQ Friday Five

1. New Year, New Art – Anyone for some Strawberry Tea? I love Terry McClary’s newest illustration for 2012!

2. 2012 Color of the Year – It’s named after a fruit and Miriam Schulman has all the details!

3. MotM: Make it So – January’s Mandala of the Month, Make it So, it perfect for starting the New Year on a good note. Thank you, Maureen Frank!

4. Coming Full Circle with Social Networking – Haven’t tackled the world of social networking yet?  Stacey Zimmerman has some great tips for newbies to make social networking work for you art business in 2012.

5. 2012/365: Day 1 – Took Gallagher doesn’t miss a beat. Her 365 project starts off with a bang and a lot of plaster!

Best wishes to you in 2012!
