Driftless Area Artists - Welcomes You...

DAA Members, Here is a referance that was given to your Webmaster. It may or it may not fit some of your needs.  I see it give lots of advice and 250 places to sell art online. See what you think on your own.  Let us know what you think of the site and or the service it gives.  Does this sort of information belong on our website?  Lets get a dialog going via the CONTACT page .  Thumbs up or thumbs down.  ArtsyShark.     


Calls for Art   2019


Wisconsin Regional Artists Association


  It’s June and we have around 100 Tiny Treasures entries.  That’s very good but not close to the goal of 400 I set (I’m a goal-setter by nature!). In 2014 we were so close with 370 entries.  2014 was also the year of the most entrants, 142.  Sure would be great if that record was broken this year!  If you already entered…thanks soooo much!
  If you haven’t, I hope you will help make that goal happen.  This is WRAA’s only yearly fundraiser.  And it’s a FUN fundraiser!  I hope you'll also enjoy the camaraderie and opportunities that WRAA has to offer.   WRAA is a member organization that provides unique artistic opportunities.  It assists with regional WRAP exhibits, the State Annual Day Conference, Evening with the Arts and the financial management of State Awards.  It also prints Contour Notes, quarterly publication covering WRAA news and WRAP exhibits, the Timely Treasures Pocket Calendar as well as the fabulous annual Color Catalog.  WRAA also sponsors teenagers in the STAMP program as well as younger kids in Bridging Generations.
An ENTRY FORM can be downloaded from www.wraawrap.com
or torn out of Contour Notes.  
  Remember the size restrictions:  exactly 2 ½ x 3 ½” with a depth of no more than 3/4”.  The TTs are free-floated in the mat so you DON’T want to leave a border on your TTs – go all the way to the edge.  If they’re larger, you run the risk of them not fitting inside the mat.  Send them to me unmatted and unframed.  I’ll mat them so that every TT will be displayed the same way.
  You don’t have to be a WRAA member to participate - although new members are always welcome!   Why not have a Tiny Treasures’ party with your friends and enjoy making them together?  Participants need to be at least 14 years old as of July 10, 2019.  Professional and nonprofessional artists are welcome to enter.  Please pass this on to anyone you can think of to encourage them to be a part of this unique opportunity.
The cash prizes for the top 3 Tiny Treasures are:  1st Place $150, 2nd Place $125 and 3rd Place $100.  There is also a $25 award for most Creative Title.  Again this year is a $50 award for the art club/association with the most Tiny Treasures entries.  12 additional TTs will be featured in WRAA’s 2020 Timely Treasures pocket calendar.  What a great way to get published as well as receive statewide recognition! 
This is the 10th year WRAA has sponsored Tiny Treasures.  Check out WRAA’s website, www.wraawrap.com to see all entries from past years.

Email sherrycackerman@gmail.com or call 608 445-2517.
Remember the deadline for receiving them is July 10
Missed this year?  There will be another in 2020
