Im offering to show your creative work that can be priced to sell, or not, and I will take no commission. The display will be concurrent with a special benefit program that will incorporate my Polar Bear Artwork, stories and corresponding music and dance performance. It will be held on August 12th from 6 to 9 pm at the UU (Unitarian Universalist) Church in Boulder Co. The artwork OR poem, or other creative expression must be inspired by or include an egg, wool or feather(s). This may be an existing work or a new creation.
There will be a $25 charge per submission. From a portion of the collected fees I will offer $50 to any creative work that is voted the best in each of several categories. The categories will include: originality, mastery of technique, etc, adding more categories as the numbers of entries increase.
The submitted pieces will be displayed in the lobby of the church with a sheet available for voting. Attendees of the program will be asked to write their preferences according to each category. They will be reminded to do this before the performance held in the main sanctuary of the church and during the intermission of the program. The pieces that accumulate the most votes in each category will receive the $50.
Written entries will be read or performed during the evening's performance in the main sanctuary as time allows and will be eligible for accumulating votes by the end of the evening. All written entries will also be available for reading throughout the evening. Please limit the length of your written piece so that it can be read within three minutes. These entries must be received no later than August 10th and must NOT be dropped off at the Unitarian Church.

My objectives are to provide exposure and an income opportunity for artists, poets, and others and to raise funds for my expenses associated with an upcoming surgery. It will be interesting to see the variety of ways that people have found expression in these common items; polar bear, feathers, eggs and wool. Through them we might be reminded of our human connection to other species. To this end Im happy to send any turkey, duck or goose egg, sheep wool or bird feathers from my farm to participants upon request.
This notice will be sent to area art organizations and my entire mailing list so it should interest a wide range of artists and other creators. Each submission must be sent or delivered to me at Fox Friendly Farm, 43430 CR 29 Pierce Colorado 80650 by August 10th or delivered at 6pm to the UU Church in Boulder on August 12th along with the submission fee for each individual entry. All artwork should be framed so that it can be displayed to its utmost advantage. We have a limited number of pedestal type tables to display sculpture, and there is a mannequin bodice available to display apparel. We will take good care of each piece, but can not be responsible for any damage during transport or display. If the pieces are sent by mail, UPS or another carrier, please include your return address and return postage. DO NOT ship them to the church address. If your entry sells, the payment and delivery arrangements will be made between you and the buyer.
I look forward to hearing from you!
