Which is the Best Jewlery Piece?

I have to submit a piece for a jury competition and I’m trying to decide which piece to submit. Should I go with simple and sleek like the Lion Crest pendant? Should go for something a little unique like the Earth Abacus Necklace? Should I do something with varying types of skill like the handsawn/pierced and wire wrapped Labradorite necklace (Twilight)?

Please let me know what your favorite is. Thanks!

Conventy Street Arts Fair Tonight

I’m planning on heading out to the Coventry Street Arts Fair tonight, perhaps even with camera in tow.  Last I checked there are 65 artists and vendors scheduled to participate (not counting all the local businesses!) who will be selling all sorts of goodies from handmade pottery and jewelry, photography and other arts to tasty treats like popcorn.  Of course, being Coventry, there should also be a decent showing of non-profit groups, and a little bit of patchouli and tie dye.  In addition check out the music, and sidewalk sales from local merchants, and family activities as well.  Of course, there’s always lots of great restaurants in the area to visit as well. The fair runs from 6-9 tonight (June 19th, 2008) and is of course located on Coventry Road.

Emerge Zine Calls for Artists

I haven’t come across Emerge before (but frankly think it would be nice to take a look at it)  Right now they’ve issued a call for artists to submit their work to be considered so I’m making that information available to you.

emerge is an art zine designed to connect emerging Midwest artists with galleries in the region.
Distributed quarterly to over 100 Midwest galleries, emerge features six artists per issue, each hand selected by a rotation of guest jurors. Professional Midwest artists working in all media are encouraged to apply. Chosen artists receive an entire color spread, complete with several images of recent work, their show history and a Q&A section where they discuss the ideas behind their art. Visit us online at http://www.sarahearle.com/links.php?43353 for submission guidelines and to see why emerge is a powerful exposure tool for any serious studio artist in the Midwest.
