Last week, we hosted a postcard giveaway, sponsored by PrintRunner. We randomly drew an entry number and our winner is: Theodora Demetriades!
Congratulations, Theodora. Let us know how your postcards turn out!
Let me add my thanks to each and every one of you who contributed fantastic ideas on how to use your postcards. We’ll be putting together a best-of list next week.
Stay tuned for more great giveways in the future!
You voted, and the results are in! Between the 3 exhibits, we had 220 entries. Here are the Member’s Choice award winners for each:
Winter Spirits by EBSQ Artist Kerry Lynn Nelson
From Flower of the Month: Conifers:
Gnarly Juniper, Grand Canyon, Arizona by EBSQ Artist Kevin Wells
From Black & White Animals (TIE):
Chime Cat Visits Cloud City by EBSQ Artist Took Gallagher
Siamese Cat by EBSQ Artist Pauline Gallagher
As a side note, I believe our two Black & White Animals Members’ Choice winners are unrelated 😉
Congratulations to all of our exhibit winners and participants!
We just completed our spring portfolio review for EJA. EBSQ is therefore pleased to announce the newest members of EBSQ Juried artists:
Our applicants were juried blindly (ie, the jurors did not know whose work they were reviewing) based on the following criteria:
quality of the art presented
professional presentation of the work presented (this includes both jpeg quality as well as the quality of the supporting artist statement included with each piece)
evidence of a cohesive, mature body of work based on the 5 pieces submitted per artist.
Out of 27 applicants, 15 artists received a 2/3 majority or greater admittance vote from our pool of 15 volunteer peer jurors. It’s not an easy process for either the peer jurors or the applicants, so our thanks and congratulations go out to every single individual who participated in the process.
The next opportunity to apply is October 2009.
