"BRING MAY FLOWERS" is the theme for Art Challenge 26  which runs from May 1 - May 31.  

Let us see your paintings and fine crafts which include flower, from the old song "When April showers they come your way, they bring the flowers that bloom in May."  These art works can be any thing   in the world of art which you have created at any time, present and past which feature, in large or in small - flowers:  beautiful scenery, the ocean, landscapes, scenery, people, trees, abstractions, knitted goods  .....    We welcome other mediums as well: assemblage,  collage, ceramics, needle art, fine art photographs, drawings, poetry.

Many people voted to keep the Art Challenges going because these on-line exhibits of art works are easier to view that our exhibits in Cribari Conference Room which is often locked,  and also so many more people can participate!  We are however mounting an exhibit on May 13, a one man show of oils and watercolors by Doug Canepa.

Please use our in-place rules and submit nothing religious, political, nude or anything that may offend others.  The more uplifting, the better.  No family or pet photos, please.

Send the photo of your art work or craft to  our  Webmaster  at barb.gottesman@gmail.com  

Colleen suggested that we welcome appreciative comments to be posted about the entries.  Appreciative comments are welcomed by each artist, but especially the beginners who need both appreciation and encouragement.  Send your comments on April's art to our Webmaster at barb.gottesman@gmail.com


If you are interested in purchasing any of the exhibited art works, please call the artist.  All artists are in the phone book.  

ALL VILLAGERS  are welcome to submit photos of their art or fine crafts

to these  ART CHALLENGE  on-line EXHIBITS.
