EBSQ Friday Five

Bunch of Carrots by Delilah Smith

1. Bunch of Carrots by Delilah Smith is this week’s featured Friday Five Artist. The contrast between the carrots and the background gives this such a fresh feeling, like summer gardens.

2. How would you like it if the entire Internet behaved liked Facebook? Big companies got all the views, while artists and indie creators were pushed to the bottom—made invisible. You need to read this easy to understand (written by an artist) article on Net Neutrality and take action today.

3. Calling All Strathmore® Card Artists! We’re looking for fresh fall and winter themed greeting card art. Submit your artwork for a chance to win cash and card products! 

4. This month’s exhibits at EBSQ are underway. Have you entered? Flower of the Month: Ferns and Plein Air: Found Reflections are taking entries till June 30th.

5. World’s Street Art Finds Its Gallery With Google – Just wonderful!
