Last call for Candy plus Haiti fundraiser

Art: Soft and Fuzzy Johnson by Artist Vicky Knowles  Today is your last chance to add work for consideration for our very first brick and mortar event in conjunction with The Chocolate Shoppe. Candy entries will be accepted through 11:59pm EST tonight.  It’s a fantastic looking show online and I for one cannot wait to see how the selected pieces will look in the space when they debut to the public on March 5, 2010. Wanna come to the opening? RSVP here on Facebook!

Also, while I have your attention with Vicky Knowles‘ lovely art, I’d like to remind you that we’re also accepting entries through the end of the month for our Red Cross fundraiser to benefit Haiti Earthquake relief.  Yes, there’s a $10 fee per entry, but half of your fee goes directly to the Red Cross, and the other half goes in the kitty for prize money for the show winner to be voted upon by you next month. It’s a win-win, and we like win-wins here at EBSQ! Please consider entering Art from the Heart to benefit Haiti today!


Help Haiti and get a jump on your resolutions

January is a time of new beginnings. It’s like a giant “do-over” where we annually give ourselves permission to do the things that make our lives and the world just a little bit better.  It’s an excellent time to join a supportive arts community like EBSQ

Need more of a nudge?

We’re donating $5 to the Red Cross for every new paid artist membership created through 31 January 2010.

Please help us support a neighbour that’s very much in need of a new beginning.  See? Two great ways to start off this fresh new year all in one go.

Already an EBSQ member? Please text HAITI to 90999 and $10 will be added to your phone bill in support of the Red Cross’ relief efforts. We’ve heard that all US cell carriers have now dropped the fee (retroactively!) for these texts.
