I'd like to introduce you to a website run by a friend of mine, Royce Deans.
This is an online digital gallery that runs competitions. The current exhibition is "The Outsider. Think Different". The current competition is "Landscapes". <---------------don't we have a few digital landscapes happening right now?
They occasionally run a brick and mortar competition and exhibit. I like the digital aspect of the majority of the exhibits though, because no shipping is involved, no hassle framing stuff.
There are also events. One upcoming event is very exciting...
it's a figure drawing marathon run in Michigan and Holland simultaneously and I do believe that they will be linked to each other on webcam.
So check out Royce's site and give him a nudge to come back and visit us, it's been awhile.
