I have two questions.
1. Has anyone ever heard of ARTWORK, a competition by Impact Unlimited, an
international exhibit company? The competition is free to enter. It states:
"please send the following: 20 samples of your work on a)CD b)indicate
website url c)slides in plastic sleeve." There is no "OR" "AND" or whatever,
so I am assuming (don't even say it) that I can send a CD. Any thoughts?
The bad thing is the company wants no contact. Hmmmmmmmm! No phone calls,
only mail. Try their internet site. It's interesting but you cannot contact
them, it's all on password.
2. My art work ranges from very realistic painting and functional pottery,
to surrealistic painting and abstract sculptural pieces. I know, where I to
want entry to a Master's program, not that I am still thinking about that at
age 53, it is wrong to lump this all together. We have to have a "cohesive
body of work." However, in the case of this competition, where there are no
hard and fast guidelines, and no names of judges, is it horribly wrong to
show the range I can do??? I suppose it is a sudden death situation to
include a growth of work, showing a little of each to show I can do it,
RIGHT? Any thoughts out there????

Flurries yesterday, sunny sky today and I am pretty sure, high fire danger
this summer, if we don't get some of that snow soon. I think our antelope
are going to be pretty hungry too.

I have not, but there are lots of places/people/groups I've
not heard of.
2. My ... work ranges from ....realistic... and functional pottery,

It's not wrong. But it might not be wise, either. Generally speaking,
a "body of work" is what's sought. You might be best off to
choose YOUR best, and submit that. You may get a more serious
look, if this is a legitimate group.

Yes, it is sudden death. It implies that you are scattered, with no focus.
Most shows and schools are not interested in such artists. You deserve
better, so just show your best work.
