Thank you for submitting your work into Colors of Humanity Art Gallery. Your participation is greatly appreciated. By contributing your talents and skills, this helps to ensure a diverse body of work for an attractive show.
I am pleased to inform you that “Conversations Connections BW” has been accepted for inclusion in the July 2015 show, “Black and White”. Congratulations! Multiple accepted entries came from 18 different states in the USA and 9 other countries, Belgium, Canada, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Slovenia, and Venezuela. A variety of styles and mediums were entered including, acrylic, , chalk, charcoal, collage, egg tempra, gouche, graphite, ink, latex, linocut, mixed media, oil, pencil, pen, photography, scratchboard, stain, and watercolor. The judging criterion was originality, interpretation, quality, demonstration of ability, and usage of medium. Other factors, such as the clarity of the images provided and their ability to be viewed online, also contributed to our decision.
We were very happy to donate 10% of all entry fees from this show to Heart to Heart International. It is our hope that this small act of kindness will blossom and grow to help someone else.
