The deadline for entry for the IAPS 2011 Convention Poster Competition is February 1, 2011. Only one piece of art will be selected, and it will appear on the poster to be sold at the 2011 Convention and on the IAPS web site. It’s a great opportunity for an artist to get wide exposure for his or her work. It’s also an easy competition to enter, as no paintings will need to be shipped and the work does not have to be available or for sale.
At the same time as the 2011 convention, IAPS will host its 18th Juried Exhibition; the entry deadline for that event is March 30, 2011. IAPS is working on expanded local publicity for this event and we expect a good turnout of art collectors. The First Master Circle Exhibition (open only to IAPS Master Circle members) will hang at the same time in the same facility, increasing the interest for potential buyers.
Members of member societies can download a prospectus for either event on the IAPS web site, www.pastelinternational.com, under the Exhibitions tab on the site.
Finally, those who have not yet registered for the 2011 Convention are encouraged to do so; full information and online registration is available on the web site, www.pastelinternational.com.
