Okanagan Erotic Art Show Love Story Julia Trops Oil painting on canvas

Okanagan Erotic Art Show update

Many of you know I do my own webwork, and manage four websites: my own, my new art gallery, Livessence.com and OkanaganEroticArtShow.com.

Earlier this month, my web service provider GoDaddy rearranged a few things for me, and while everything is running much smoother, I have some work to do to get it all up and running as it should.  The transition was kind to Livessence, which is now completed, and thanks to Postie, it gets its updates with the emails that go out to the members.

The Okanagan Erotic Art Show is next on the list.  I expect it to be up and on its way in about a week or two.  In the meantime, I’d like to share what I am contemplating the theme will be for 2014.  Steamy, a play on the idea of the beautiful Wellness Spa Resort at Sparkling Hill, and a steampunk influence, is what I am leaning toward.  You all know I have some sort of byline so that the artist does not feel restricted in their creative process.  Once that is finalized, I will post it all on the Erotic Show website.

I am looking for jurors for the show, so if you have any ideas, do send them along!  The process for the jurying will be the same as last year:  blind (no names), image + title + artist statement.  Yes = 1 point, No = 0 points, and Maybe = .5 point.  Artworks with 2 points are automatically in.

I am also looking for sponsors for any amount.  If you would like to be involved in any way, let me know!

If you have any questions, I’ll see what I can do to answer them.  I expect the Call to Artists to come out Nov/Dec timeframe.  Some small changes have been incorporated, and as you know every year I try to make the show better.  We had a fabulous year this year, so the challenge has been set before me.
