Dear 30/30 Artists

As you know, Friday is our last day! Yeah! Can you believe we made it? I’m excited to see everyone and
what you have accomplished.

This Friday April 1st, from 3:00 to 5:00, we will be at the Sevier County Administration Building in the
auditorium (where we had our “Kick Off” party). Bring the artwork that you have selected to go into
our Sevier County, 18 Month Calendar and we will photograph it. Choose a piece that best rep-
resents Sevier County. Also bring your ‘Challenge’ info. so we can get things lined up for our show.
Information we are needing:
What ‘Challenge’ did you set for yourself?
How many pieces were you able to complete?
What medium?
What sizes?
What other display needs will youl have?

Printed invites for the ‘Artist Reception’ will be available to pick up on this day. A PDF file will also be
sent to your e-mail so that you can print off more or send electronically the invites you need. Please invite all
your friends and family!

Monday Evening, May 2, 2011, the Atrium will be open at 6:00 p.m. for any ‘Challenge’ Artists that would
like to get a head start on setting up their ‘Challenge’ display. Please bring your pieces for the resgular Show on
Tuesday, May 3 from 1-4 as prieviously scheduled.

Thanks! Hope this Challenge was successful for you even if in a small improvement.

- We will need to know how many pieces you have been able to complete when you bring in your piece.
- You are responsible for framing any art piece that you would like to sell. You also need to decide on your other pieces, how you want them displayed and then be sure you have what you need to do so.

- Also choose a piece to go in the raffle. This piece is donated but could be returned to you if it is not chosen by the raffle winner. The artist gets to keep the money donated. If we get more that $200.00 donated we will have two winners.
- We will honor each ‘Challenge’ participant at the Awards Dinner on Wednesday May 4th at 6:00 PM at the Sevier County Admin. Building. The cost is $12.00 a plate. Please buy your tickets on ‘Entry Day’.

We will have official invites for you to get and pass out at the sign in table on Entry Day.

Thanks for all your hard work these ‘30’ weeks.

Hopefully all of you have success stories to share even if it is one or two works of art that you wouldn’t have done otherwise.

Looking forward to seeing each of you on April 1st!
