Some updates for the week

We’re nearing the end of the data recovery process and hope to be back online within the next 48 hours.   We’ll update if/when that ETA changes.

In the interim, many of you have last month’s exhibits as well as October’s on the brain. Here’s what’s happening with these.

If you missed seeing the notice on our temporary homepage or our Facebook feed,  all September exhibits have been extended through mid-October.

Shows on tap for October are:

Think Pink, our annual Susan G Komen fundraiser. All entries must have a significant amount of pink the the composition. There’s a $10 entry fee per piece, payable to SGK. We’ll get the details on how to pay your entry fee soon.

Our annual Pet Portrait Swap is happening this month. Looking for a partner? Let us know in the comments to this post, or leave a note on our Facebook wall.

This month’s Flower of the Month is members of the gourd family, Cucurbitaceae. As you might have guessed based upon the name, cucumbers and zucchini are also welcome.

We’re postponing our juried Norse Mythology exhibit until 2012, likely January. More details will be forthcoming.

And lastly on a personal note, I miss you guys. I can’t wait to have us back up and running again and see all of the art that happened in the past week.

Thanks for your patience.  We know this past week has been a major inconvenience.
