SO YOU THINK YOU MIGHT WANT TO EXHIBIT?
by Pat Anderson
A planned exhibit in conjunction with the Artists’ League of the Sandhills has been confirmed (at this point) for
September 2020. Some members may be new to exhibiting, so based on prior years’ requirements, the Board
thought it would be a good idea to let you know what is necessary in order to submit a photograph for the
exhibit as well as some resources that our members use.. This will give you time to prepare your photos over the
summer. If after reading this, you still have questions, please feel free to contact me:
f anything changes or when we have final information from the Artists’ League, we
will let you know in future email blasts to the membership.
