Your work must include an artist's statement (YOUR words about the piece)  or ....
A favorite Lyric, Poem, Quote or Biblical/Spiritual Verse, etc, which inspired you to create the piece or that has 
a connection with your piece.

All statements must be emailed to me so the text is available to be formatted without the addition of anyone having to re-type them.   It can be in the body of the email or in a WORD document (BEST option) and attached to your email.  Also include a hard copy (a print-out) of your statement when you mail in your entry form.  Please make sure that your entry form is completely filled out ..... Title, Medium, Price, Dimensions.  All of this info is necessary for the tags and brochure to be printed.  Info missing from entry forms causes someone to take the extra time to hunt down this info.  Utilizing the CHECKLIST at the bottom of the entry form should prevent you from missing any information.

Please keep in mind, many hours volunteered by many members are essential to put on our great exhibits.  
Thanks to everyone for all their efforts and for sharing their creativity with so many. I am very proud to be among so many talented and wonderful people!
