Tomorrow, member artist Angelika Kade and guest Betty Newman and I will travel to the east coast to attend the National Association of Women Artists' Florida Chapter Annual Luncheon in Boynton Beach, FL. It will be interesting to meet people that I've only spoken with on the telephone, or seen their work in catalogues or shows and the company on the long trip will be fun, too. I applied to enter this group a few years ago and was delighted to be accepted. NAWA has give me the opportunity to show in a number of places that would be difficult for a regional artist. I've won a few prizes and sold a few paintings, too. It's been a good experience, and although you have to pay to ship your paintings, it's worth it to get exposure outside of South Florida. This group juries in new artists once a year in the fall, so follow the link and get more information if you're interested. I'll try to get a post in tomorrow, but we're setting off early to a show in Anna Marie Island, between Sarasota and Tampa. I'll let you know all about it when we get back.
