CALL for ENTRIES: Annual Axis Gallery Juried
Like many of you, I frequently “wing it” in the kitchen. I like the idea of cooking with whatever you have on hand and making adjustments according to taste along the way. However, while editing a recipe for a friend recently, I realized there is a certain comfort in knowing the exact amount of salt to put in the potatoes. There is comfort in not guessing the temperature or constantly checking the oven to see if your famous apple pie is ready. Take comfort in the fact that this Call is a well-established show with lots of room for research. Time to create your own recipe…
Check out this Call for Entries from the Axis Gallery in Sacramento, CA for their 7th Annual National Juried Competition! The entry fee is only $30, and the juror is well-documented so you can do your homework (#4 FYI) BEFORE you submit work!
