We just learned that the 2011 California State Fair has a Fine Art competition that includes a category specifically for colored Pencil. (Division 405 "Other 2D Artworks," Class 3: Colored Pencil.)
The deadline for online entry is April 22, and receipt of art (JPEG files on CD) April 27. The exhibit takes place during the state fair in Sacramento, July 14-31. Cost is $20 per piece entered, and accepted entries must be framed under plexiglass rather than glass.
If you do plein air work, they have a competition for that, too, for work completed on site during the fair!
Go to http://www.bigfun.org/competition-adult.php and https://www.bigfun.org/exhibits/all/exhibitshome.aspx for more details.
Hurry, this is an opportunity for more exposure for our colored pencil passion!

District Chapter Meeting
Saturday, April 9, 2011 • 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Almond Avenue Adult School • 1440 Almond Ave., Livermore CA
Please bring your lunch and bring your work to show. Bring your supplies and something to work on or start a new piece with everyone's help and input (if you want it). We will enjoy working together at the meeting.
If you have something to discuss or questions to ask, please let us know.
Art Books: If you have new or favorite art books, bring them to share! Many good books, particularly about colored pencil, aren't readily available for browsing in book stores or online, so this is an opportunity to thoroughly look them over before deciding to buy your own copy.
Anything exciting happening in your art life? Share it! Make new friends!
