FUSENEWS E-Blast 02-18

This is the first issue of a monthly E-blast that The Enamelist Society will be sending to our membership. We are not replacing the Society Newsletter, we are adding another medium of membership contact and communication. While we have worked hard to learn some of the idiosyncrasies of the "Mail Chimp" template, there is certainly a lot more for us to learn to improve the look and quality of this E-blast. We will appreciate your comments and experience with Mail Chimp or other similar electronic communication providers. Finally, please realize that what you see on your screen is not only a function of what we produced, but it's also affected by your ISP, web browser and device (computer, laptop, tablet, phone, etc.) - please help us and be patient with us as we learn.

Alliance/Reliance - A Collaboration in Enamel Art

Deadline for entry: January 31, 2019

Cost: $30 submission fee for each collaborative team (at least one of the participants in the team has to a member of The Enamelist Society)

We hope all the pieces will be donated and auctioned at the live auction of the conference, but participants can determine if the piece will be for sale or not. If it is for sale, 100% of the proceeds will go to The Enamelist Society. The piece does NOT have to be for sale. If we receive more submissions than expected, some pieces could possibly be included in the silent auction. 

Incentives to apply: 
  • There is no jury and all pieces will be included in the exhibition
  • Physical exhibition at the conference
  • There will be an online exhibition before the physical exhibition
  • Enables absentee bidding
  • Auctioned at the end of the conference as a fundraiser for The Enamelist Society, should you choose this option
  • Shutterfly/blurb catalog
The registration form will be available on the Society website in the spring.
