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.

Ed gets on Facebook and looks at one of the new for sale groups that people are using to sell unwanted items. Ed see’s a post “wall hanging blanket, 52” Plasma, Tiffany style lamp for sale”. This looks promising. Ed sends a message that he’s interested in the blanket. Seller then replies with a price. Ed sends a friend request and it is accepted almost immediately. Ed asks “when can I see it?” to which the seller replies “I’m home now if you like stop by. I’m at 2521 Tahachi drive” call me when you’re headed this way and I will have it ready for you. My number is 888.8883. Ed just hit the jackpot. Now here’s why. Ed has an address, and phone number and after befriending The Victim he see’s where your Spouse works and when, your pet’s name, if you have kids or not at home. Now all Ed has to do is lay in wait.
