EARTH WARE and FIRE, CDA ARTISTS GALLERY EXHIBITION 2015 The Artists Gallery on Norfolk Avenue, Virginia Beach will be hosting an Exhibition for CDA members from Friday, 4th September through Sunday, 4th October 2015. The exhibition is open to all CDA members. Everyone is encouraged to enter as this is a great opportunity to showcase what is happening on the local ceramic scene. Due to limited space, the Artists Gallery will accept pieces depending on space available and thus, works will be juried. Entry deadline is Aug 1, 2015.
Awards: $100 first place, $75 second place, $50 third place and three $25 honorable mentions. Click here for full details.

NUMEROUS LOCAL ART AND CRAFT SHOW OPPORTUNITIES Are you interested in small local craft shows to sell your work? There is a show coordinator in Hampton who organizes shows as fundraisers for the sponsoring organizations. These are typically 1-day events on the Peninsula, and costs range from around $30 - $50 for a 10x10 space. These shows usually allow all types of artists, crafters, and vendors. They can be indoors or outdoors, and sometimes offer table rentals depending on the resources of the sponsoring venue. This is an affordable way to try the show circuit and enjoy a day selling your work.
The website is http://4eventplanning.com, and the coordinator's name is Nancy Belew. There are currently show opportunities in October, and November with more to come.
