WHAT IS THE PICK OF THE MONTH & pICK OF THE YEAR?
Pick of the Month is an informal contest at each general meeting for our members to bring examples of their artwork to be displayed in a peer gallery and voted on during the mid-meeting coffee break that includes light refreshments. Winners are announced toward the end of the meeting and certificates awarded. We'd like to see what you've been working on (work done in class is ok). art should be finished and in a ready-to-hang condition (framed unless its gallery wrap). we need at least 7 entries to award 3 places, so please participate! at the end of the year first-place winners will compete for pick of the year.
At the last meeting of the year all the Pick of the Month first place winners are presented and the members vote on their favorite work for the year.
