"Art in Embassies" is part of the U.S. Department of State.  When newly appointed ambassadors move into our American embassies all over the world, interor designers create new embassey environments by choosing art pieces from U.S. artists.  These art pieces are on loan for several years.  Artists may not sumbit work!  The designers do the choosing by looking at artists' websites.  I was astounded a month ago when I was asked if I'd loan "If I Ran the Zoo…" to hang in the American Embassy in Vientiane, Laos for the next 3 1/2 - 4 years!  Of course, I said, YES!"  It will be shipped there early in November.

Important News About Let's Get Mod!

We know you are busy, busy, busy with the Thanksgiving holiday upon us!  You’re shopping for groceries, planning meals, and preparing for the arrival of family and friends.  We know that the Let’s Get Mod deadline came at a very bad time for many of you.  Our membership has told us that life responsibilities and lack of time are the two biggest obstacles in the ability to create artwork.  We hear you and we want to make your participation in our regional exhibits as easy and enjoyable as possible.  So we are extending the Let’s Get Mod deadline to November 27, 2016, in the hopes that you will find some time during/after the Thanksgiving holiday to enter our regional exhibit.  We want to support you and we appreciate all of you supporting us so that we can continue to bring you a variety of regional exhibition opportunities.  

If you have already made and entered one quilt and would like to make another, you won't have to pay another entry fee. Just enter your work and skip the pay part.  You may enter up to three works for $25.  There is the possibility of several artists having more than one work chosen for this collection.  

Thank you for working with us!

We wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving surrounded by friends, family… and good food!
