ACGA National

Just a reminder that the entry deadline for ACGA's first national juried competition is only two months away, with an October 30th postmark. This competition is open to all US artists who create handmade clay and glass artwork. You do not need to join ACGA to enter. The show will take place January 22 through March 4, 2011, at the City of Brea Art Gallery in southern California near Los Angeles.

ACGA members and City of Brea residents are entitled to a discounted entry fee. They can enter three pieces for the entry price of two ($25), or enter two pieces for the price of one ($15). An entry of just one piece will not be discounted.

It is a good idea to have your artwork professionally photographed. Entries must be submitted on a CD, at 300 dpi, no longer that 6 inches, and jpg format. In the San Francisco area I can recommend J. Jones as a photographer, 415-773-8784. In Los Angeles I like K&M Photography, 310-306-7574,, ask for Tim. Most photographers will resize your images and put them on a CD for a small extra fee.
