CALL TO ARTISTS

Artists:  Our call to artists invited you as emerging and established artists to submit artwork for our juried group show, “Vietnam War Service, People, and Experience”, of art that the veteran’s service, the people, the experience–all relating to the Vietnam War. The jurors will be looking for work capturing the positive experience of those who served to defend the people of South Vietnam.  You are sent this reminder because you have expressed an interest in participating in this exhibit. The actual art exhibit opening at the museum is October 18, but I was hoping that some of you may want your art displayed at our annual event honoring Arizona’s Vietnam veterans on October 4. This will be a great event as the previous three were. The original deadline for submission of artwork (via photos) was October September 6 to select some art for the dinner/event on October 4. (See invitation and RSVP attached).   You have some time after that (a week or so) to submit for the actual art exhibit in the museum.  Attached are various images relating to Vietnam if you seek more inspiration.  I got them all online. This is just a reminder to “tickle” your actions in your already busy schedule.  If you have questions, feel free to call me at 520-868-6777 or 602-509-8762.  Thank you for your interest, your support, and for sharing your talent.
