EDIT: I have recently lowered the number of votes required to approve submissions and new members. I apologize for those submissions that have expired. Previously, to approve anything required three votes, and I believe there were less than three active administrators. Hopefully I've fixed this issue going forward. (Jan 3, 2016)
It's off to a new start for this Calgary art group! Just in time for the chilly weather to blow in (on Sunday I swear there was a sprinkling of snow on my balcony). I hope everyone's enjoying the fall colours while they last.
Like the journal title says, what would you like to see from this art group?
I would personally love to feature local artists who are attending Otafest // Calgary Comic Expo. If you have an exhibition at ACAD or Art Central, are participating in a local show and sale, or want a shout out for your auction at the Gorilla House, etc., I would be more than willing to give you prominent journal space. Send me pictures please I check Deviantart almost every day - just shoot Starlitdragon a note and I will get back to you in a timely manner.
Aside from features, I'm pretty open for ideas - contests, cowboys, colourful cows ... anything that screams "CALGARY!!" to you.
And please, keep those submissions rolling! As always, thank you to everyone who has submitted. For those who are new or haven't looked at the submission criteria in a while, take a peek here: calgary-artists.deviantart.com…
In particular, we are looking for:
- Original Art
- Quality / your personal best
If this group starts showing more activity, I will be pleased to add more admins. Should you have an idea for a program / activity you want to run, pitch it and you're more than welcome to jump aboard.
