Freebie Friday: Image Description Sheet

Freebie square 7-7

Hello again for another Freebie Friday!

Today we have a guide to help you create a description sheet to accompany your artwork. We see a lot of applications come in, whether it be for the Residency or the Exposure Program, and we always ask for samples of your work. It is so important that anytime you send samples of your work to anyone, that you provide a detailed description list to go with it. This is probably one of the most overlooked pieces of information in an application, but it is so simple to do!  We have created a guide/template to help you make your description list look professional and easy to understand. We hope that by keeping the description list in mind as a key component of your application, it will no longer be so easily overlooked.

Hey! We are conducting some research about housing, and would love your feedback!

Many real estate owners and developers think working people (and specifically artists) want to rent forever. Can this be true? Here is a survey to help us better understand the needs of working people, and artists specifically, in regards to their housing. Please fill this out and re-post where you can. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with us.
