Just hours left to enter Repurposed

Don’t let this juried show pass you by:

Repurposed: Art from Recycled Materials

From 4/1/2010 thru 4/30/2010

Online Art Exhibit:  Repurposed: Art from Recycled Materials

Repurposed: Art from Recycled Materials. This was one of our most popular shows of the past ten years and we’re happy to bring it back in honor of our 10th anniversary exhibition season. Repurposed is more than getting out old family photos and using them to make coasters or taking a tool box and turning it into a toy chest. This show is about taking things that are destined for the landfill and turning them into art. Yep, we’re talking trash here. This is “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” on steroids and your challenge for this show is to take what would normally never get a second look, what most people would throw away, and create. It can be anything from a coffee filter to a broken chair. An old, spare wheel or an abused and broken toy. Box tops, cans, scraps of fabric, cd cases, jars, coolers, old oven racks… you get the idea. Anything that has found its way into the dustbin or onto the curb is fair game. What you do with your finds – what other things you combine them with, is entirely up to you and limited only by your imagination.

To make things even more interesting, this is a juried show, with a $5 fee-per-entry for participation. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the winner selected by juror Emily Towbin Levenson of the Pittsburgh Craft Collective.

Please tell us what items you used to create your entry, where they came from and how you put it all together. Also include why you used what you did and why it caught your eye. If texture or other small elements are pivotal to your piece, please be sure to include detail shots.

Some additional items of note:This exhibit is open to all paid members of the EBSQ Self-Representing Artist community. Not yet a member? Consider joining today!

Entry fees ($5 per entry) are payable via our Chipin widget.

Entry deadline for August shows rapidly approaching

If you are planning to enter the August EBSQ shows, you had better get it in gear. The end of the month may be a few days away, but it will be here before we know it – especially for those of us with a holiday weekend coming up.  This means if you are participating in the Pet Portrait Swap and you haven’t finished, you really need to step it up so as not to disappoint your partner and miss out on the voting once the show closes. At the moment there is $50 dollars in the Pet Portrait Swap kitty.

If you are interested in seeing what has been entered in this month’s shows so far, you can see it all merely by visiting the EBSQ Shows page. There you can see entries in “Pet Portrait Swap ’08”, “Welcome To The Theatre” and the “Flower Of The Month: Begonias” shows. You can also utilize the chipin.com feature on the individual show pages to contribute to that show’s prize kitty. These prizes are awarded to the “Member’s Choice” winner for each show. The Member’s Choice winners are selected by the EBSQ membership.

Now go and create. It will be September soon!

Think Pink – The Final Countdown!!

It is the last hours of the last day of the month of October. Soon, Breast Cancer Awareness Month will be past us for another year. This year, EBSQ has mounted a show to benefit The Susan G Komen Foundation. The response has been tremendous. So many have entered “Think Pink”. Many have made a donation. For all of this, we thank you. However, October is not over yet! Should you want to make a donation this month or have been planning to make a donation this month but haven’t gotten to it yet, please go the the EBSQ Group Page and help us reach our goal. We are working towards $1000 and we are almost there.

Every bit helps us reach the goal we set for ourselves and every bit helps put us one step closer to making breast cancer a thing of the past.
