Did you know there is a proper direction to pass food around the table?  It dates back centuries to men, mostly right handed, who were armed at the dinner table.  If you passed food  from the right, you ran the chance of bumping in to a weapon or worse yet, causing a spilled drink.  So these days it is still considered proper to serve or pass from left to right.  After all these years, you’d think there would be a better reason or a new direction, but, no.  This next Call is a new direction, more than 3 decades old –an exhibit now in its 33rd year. Don’t miss this opportunity…

Check out this Call for Entries from Barrett Art Center (Poughkeepsie, NY) for New Directions 2017.   This venue is spectacular, and the juror is always great.  Take a look…
