Hi Susan,

...the operative, salient point here, was that "not all

Try and understand that.

Of course you do not want to mail fragile things, nor would
you have needed TO do so.

But then too, what WOULD you do if the 'piece' was accepted
to the Show, or wouold your 'slides' of course represent
something 'else' THAN the piece you would enter?

Anyway...these were "local" Shows, intended to be for a
local community. Not for people as live far away per-se to
send in slides of something other than what they WOULD
enter, they COULD enter pieces if they wanted, by getting
the pieces there however they liked.

Hence, not all Shows are alike...not all Shows relied on

I think the "Orton Box Show" also..does not rely on
'slides', but, relies on the actual Work as in their case is
mostly sent in, but, we may recall, is 'small' sized Work...
