CALL for ENTRIES: Mum’s the Word
My mom makes me think of miniature chocolate chips, walnuts and sweet potatoes. My seventy-year-old mother is a great baker of biscuits and cookies and casseroles. She reminds me of rose bushes and Christmas trees, homemade hot chocolate and KISS unplugged. She’s a mess, and I love her. This next call invites you to contemplate mothers, flowers and secrets. Show them yours…
Check out this Call for Entries for Mum’s the Word from the Smithtown Township Arts Council to be exhibited at the historic Mills Pond House Gallery. The entry fee is a little higher than usual, but you could end up with a solo show in this gorgeous historic house gallery. Take a chance…
