Did I ever tell you I looked into moving into a pickle factory?  No joke.  It was a part of the Paducah Artist Relocation program.  I fell in love with the beams.  Apparently it once housed a tamale manufacturing operation once as well.  Never fear, it smelled like neither.  In the end, I chose the mountains over the pickles.  This next Call hails from Paducah.  Don’t miss this opportunity…

Check out this Call for Entries from the Yeiser Art Center (Paducah, KY) for Paducah Photo 2013.  The entry fee is cheap, and the jurors are great.  $2000 in cash awards isn’t bad either…
