One of my favorite local art resources is Artist Trust. They are always posting new opportunities and many of the exhibitions I’ve been lucky enough to partake in have been from time spent on their website. Recently I saw a call for “10 x 10 x 10 x Tieton.” When I looked into it further, I discovered Mighty Tieton. It seems like a really cool concept that a group of creative professionals are trying to use their professional resources to create economic development in a small town in Eastern Washington. Since I have some family in Yakima (15 miles away), I’m definitely going to have to investigate this in person the next time I’m over there. And I, of course, will have to submit something for the upcoming show. It is juried, so hopefully I’ll get in?
One of their associated enterprises is Goathead Press, and I see that they are offering some printmaking classes this summer. That may also be something worth looking into? Could be a fun birthday weekend in June!
