Here is my opinion on the Artisan competition; being that it is of interest
to me. ;-D
I really love the idea of a theme for an artisan competition. However,
since the ad will not be out until August, I don't think it will give
adequate time for artisans to put an entry together with any quality. Most
artisans already have some showable pieces and if we had it as a body of
work with a limited number of pieces (say no more than 5), I think we can
come up with the adequate amount of space to accommodate the artists. I
feel that 5 pieces should give the judges enough to look at to know the
talents of the artist. Additionally, placing a theme can make it more
challenging for the artists and will limit the number to compete.
So, my question to you is.....do we want a theme with fewer artists? Or
more artist entrants with a more general display?
My 2 cents worth.
