Excellent Guideline for Show Entry Preparation and Update On Young and Talented

Curator Gayle Prichard and Betsy Manderen during opening of
Artist As Quiltmaker

Ohio artist, curator and author Gayle Pritchard has written an excellent article I want to share with you covering all the preparation required for entering Juried Competitions. The article was published on Subversive Stitchers: Women Armed with Needles.

Thank you Gayle. I was surprised to hear your comments regarding non-delivery of work which had been juried into exhibitions.

My second update is on my student Logan. As I mentioned in her article, she attended a summer program for high school students this summer at the Rhode Island School of Design. Today I received photos of the silkscreen work she completed AND her designs for a potential Prom Dress.

Thank you for sharing time with me here at Studio 24-7. I love hearing from you!


  1. Thanks for sharing the guest blog link, Terry. I always think it's helpful to learn about things from another's perspective, in this case, from the exhibition curator's perspective vis a vis the artist's perspective. Since I play a role as both, I hope there are some insights.
    Your Young and Talented is a great read, btw. What exciting work! This young woman is off and running.

  2. Thank you Gayle. There are indeed many steps to the opening of an art exhibition for the sponsor and the artist. It's helpful to be aware of the two processes.

    Thank you also for your comment about Logan. She is indeed off and running!

  3. Go indeed! Remember, this little artist is 16! Wouldn't you love to work next to that energy? Thanks Judi.
