The challenge: To create 50 works of art in 50 days!
The benefits: An intense creative experience; being part of a great exhibition of over 3,000 works with an estimated audience of 1,000 or more viewers; fellowship with other artists; and a spectacular opportunity to make works available for sale to people who might not be able to afford your larger pieces.
ENTER ONLINE: CallForEntry.org (CaFE™) provides artists with an easy-to-use system to create a profile with contact information, upload digital images of your artwork, and apply to a number of open calls for entry at one time. There is no cost to register, and you can update your profile at anytime.

San Mateo County Fair Art Competition
Just a reminder to fellow artists that the San Mateo County Fair is quickly approaching. The fair will run from June 10 - 18this year.
All entry forms need to be in by May 9. All art entries are $10 each.
If you miss the May 9 deadline, you can pay a $100 late fee and still get your work in by May 16. Online is best, but if you have to have a
real guidebook, they have some at the Event Center Office at 2495 S. Delaware St./ San Mateo 94403. Also, check your local
main library or community center.
I'll be sending out a list towards the end of April for the different volunteer opportunities that can be filled.
follow the lead that says "How to Enter Your Stuff" and it will take you to the Fine Arts Galleria.
Remember, this is open to anyone---you don't have to live in San Mateo County. We get entries from as far as Japan.
