The days of submitting slides and CDs of your art work to most exhibitions, especially those nationally and internationally, have gone by the wayside, with most entry forms being done on-line now. That means that artists need to know how to take photos of their work and turn them into .jpegs, the preferred format for submissions. Nancy Smeltzer, nationally recognized fiber artist and Publicity Co-Chair of the Art League of Henderson County, will show some of the ins and outs of that process as part of the free Mar. 13, 2016, meeting held by the Art League of Henderson County in Hendersonville, NC.
“This is a critical skill for artists these days” Smeltzer said, “yet many are stymied by trying to read the manuals that are out there or watch videos on YouTube.” Smeltzer has lots of patience, having taught 7th graders for 27 years, and one of her favorite phrases is “Stop me right when it doesn’t make sense”. The audience will be able to ask lots of questions and there will be a handout.
The Art League of Henderson County, NC, is open to all who are interested in fine art. The organization meets monthly on the second Sunday of each month (3rd Sunday in May), at The Opportunity House, 1411 Asheville Highway, Hendersonville, NC. (ample on-site parking; handicapped accessible). The social time begins at 1:30pm, with a short business meeting beginning at 2pm. An art related presentation then follows until 4pm. Guests are welcome and encouraged to come early to view the month’s exhibit of members’ paintings and vote for their favorite. The winning artist is named Artist of the Month.
