It’s official – I’ve just registered and paid my $50 fee for ArtPrize 2010. Now the prospective venues can see my ArtPrize profile to review my works. Artist registration is open only through May 27, and the matching process begins on June 17, 2010.
Only a few months after ArtPrize 2009 took Grand Rapids by storm – I’ve been asked numerous times if I planned to enter the competition again.
I had to give this question a lot of time and consideration, actually. The inaugural ArtPrize was so unique, so fantastic, so well-received – it’s hard as an artist to play a game of “Top That!”. Like many artists, I suspect we put all of our heart and soul into our exhibits to make them extra-special last year.
But I DO have a project in mind – and my current goal is to see it come to fruition by the time ArtPrize exhibits are being installed. To see what I may be photographing – and to help contribute to the large project – please continue here…
I’m actively seeking a venue location, preferably not in a restaurant environment for this year’s competition. The number of pieces I produce for the total entry will be dependent on the space offered by a venue. I would also hope to have a multimedia component of the exhibit as I did last year – but it will not be a requirement of a venue location.
Come on up to the second floor mezzanine level – and say hello! I plan to be at SanChez most of the evening (OK – there’s a couple little receptions I’d love to get over to briefly, if I can …) – but my exhibit surely is ready for your enjoyment!
From 5pm on – I will be upstairs with 18 canvases pieces and a large screen television generously on loan from Appletree Christian Learning Center. Three multimedia shows are running on the screen – West Michigan, wild birds and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore!
Here is a peek at Sleeping Bear (high-quality video – please be patient – but worth the wait!).
