|Applying for a group show|
Leann Johson of Lea-Way Designs sent out a call for artist members to submit images for a proposal to the Bloomington Art Center gallery show in 2010. Leann got 14 people to submit images. Leann drafted the proposal to have a group HTA show to showcase the HTA artists diverse styles and promote the use of tile and mosaic through out the region.
Leann had to put this all together in a little over a week to make the deadline. We will hear back in the next couple of months if we will be invited to have this show. If we get a show all HTA artist members will be able to submit work to the show. Thanks to Leann for putting this together on behalf of the HTA membership.
