Last year Laura McCaul asked for images and submitted the 12 HTA artists work to be considered for a show at the Phipps Center for the Arts in Hudson Wisconsin. Due to another artist cancellation the Phipps contacted Laura and asked if the HTA could have enough work to fill the 4 large galleries. Laura and Josh Blanc meet with Anastasia from the Phipps and they worked out a plan to offer to all the advertising artist members to submit 3 pieces of work to fill the galleries.
This is a great opportunity for the Handmade Tile Association to show
the entire group. We have not been able to do this since 2002 at the MN
State Fair Grounds. It will be going on for one month before the 2010 MN
Tile Festival and it will be a great way for artists to promote your
work before the show and the show itself.
It is a free show to
participate in. There is a 65% / 35% split with the Phipps Center for
any sales of the work and 10% for any referrals that turn into sales is
expected. Any sales will be paid out within 30 days of the end of the
show.Here is the info you need to know to participate
you must be a current 2010 artist advertiser in the directory
