shadow art fair update

This is just a reminder to those of you interested in being vendors at the upcoming, December 2nd Shadow Art Fair. Applications are due today, by midnight. (I suspect, however, that the other judges and I will be willing to extend it to Monday afternoon, especially if someone’s work is particularly strong and/or interesting.) The online submission form can be found here. Unlike other local shows, there are no up-front fees. And, should you be accepted, the cost of participation is just $25… There are five judges this go-round. They are me, Jennifer “Henrietta Fahrenheit” Albaum, Molly Mast, Timothy “Sappy Cards” Furstnau and Melissa “Lekkner” Dettloff. As I think I mentioned in an earlier post, we are expanding our vendor list to 40 this time out. That means that we’ll be adding about a dozen new people… So, if you’d like to compete for one of those 12 spots, fill out the form and submit it. We’ll be notifying all applicants on Halloween to let them know whether they’re in or not.

And, for those of you artistic-types who don’t think you necessarily want to participate as vendors, there’s another opportunity you might be interested in. This time, we’re having a poster design contest. The details can be found here, and entries are due by Friday, October 20th, at midnight. If you know of people who might be interested, please send them that link and urge them give it a shot. While it doesn’t pay anything, the artist selected will get a few screen-printed copies of his/her poster, and plenty of recognition. (Our last poster was everywhere and we suspect that this one will be too.)

And, lastly, if you don’t have aspirations to participate either as a vendor or as a poster designer, at least put December 2nd on your calendar and make it a point to come out and see what we’ve got going on… I guarantee that spending money buying holiday gifts from independent, local artists at the Shadow Art Fair will leave you feeling a hell of a lot better, and more festive, than dropping cash at WalMart, or any other ‘big box’ retailer, for a shitty products made by foreign children.

    I have a silky smooth scrotum.

    Seriously, stuff just slides right off.

    I’m not sure how this translates into a business opportunity, but, if there’s an opening, I’ll give it some thought.

    I’ve been saving my scabs since I was seven. I have a terrific one that’s the shape of the former Soviet Union.

    If you’re impressed by that, you should see his nuts!

    I think people would pony up a quarter to have their ball grooming technique critiqued. Why the hell not? I vote
