The Internet, blogs and social networking have opened up a world of opportunities for sharing ideas and knowledge. Earlier this week, Seth Apter, artist and author of The Pulse of Mixed Media: Secrets and Passions of 100 Artists Revealed put out an open call to be part of an online project relating to the book. The part that was really encouraging was..
There is no jury. All submissions that meet the requirements of the open call will be accepted*. So scratch that off as a reason for not submitting. (*The fine print says that I do have the right to pass on any entry if given reason to but I am assuming and hoping that this will not happen)
Seriously, how exciting!! I had to enter so I have been putting together a little something all week and it's ready to get on the aeroplane and head for New York.
The piece had to answer one or all of the following questions.
1. The Artistic Ingredient: If your artwork could talk, what would it say?
If my art could talk it would ask for more glitter.
2. Passion in Action: Who has had the most impact on your creative life?
My family and life are my greatest inspiration.
3. Secrets Revealed: What is one thing you have never shared with the creative community?
Art is my ticket to freedom from the piles and piles of laundry.
