Voting and an Invitation

Please vote for me for Visitors Choice Award! For the first time the museum has opened up voting online. Now you can still vote, even if you won't be in Salt Lake City this year!

To vote go to the online gallery, scroll through until you find me, and enter your email address. You can vote using as many unique email addresses as you have. If you have time I also recommend reading through the descriptions on the other pieces. The curators did a fantastic job in selecting a variety of styles and media and the artists' write-ups make the exhibit even better.

Thank you so much for all your support!

And now a personal invitation to the youth:
The deadline is nearly here for entries into the International Art Competition for Youth! The competition is open to youth of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, ages 13-18. (Members must turn 13 by January 1, 2012).  Entries must be postmarked or electronically received via the website by Friday, June1, 2012.

If selected, pieces will be on exhibit in the Church History Museum at Temple Square November 16, 2012, through June 17, 2013 and will be eligible for one of the 20 Merit Awards and/or three of the Visitors Choice Awards.

So if you are or know a young LDS artist, please checkout the Competition's official website (linked above). On the website they have an in-depth interactive tutorial that will help walk you [or any artists, really!] through the creative process. It even includes a virtual sketchbook to keep track of thoughts, ideas, and inspirations as you go through it that you can print out at the end!
I'm slightly partial to the second example used in the "Symbols" section....

Good luck! I can't wait to see what you come up with!
