    Deadline alert! Representative images due September 21st

    Heroines, Hops and Hounds is an MNWCA members' invitational exhibition featuring drinking-related vessels. Here's what you need to know (for more information, click on the link below):

    - The exhibition will be held March 24-30, during the national NCECA conference. Great exposure to thousands of peers and collectors!

    - The venue, Lakes and Legends Brewing, is just a stone's throw from NCECA 2019's home base, the Minneapolis Convention Center.

    - Image submission deadline is SEPTEMBER 21st. We need to see 2-3 images representative of the drinking vessels you will provide in March (NOT the actual pieces...you still have plenty of time to create!)

    - In order to keep our display well stocked, participants are encouraged to provide a minimum of 30 pieces. We will consider artists who supply a smaller number of pieces, but please let Kim know how many pieces you plan to submit when applying.

    - A percentage of sales from the exhibition will raise funds for women's shelters.

    - Participating artists will be chosen from the submitted entries, based on quality of work and ability to produce inventory.

    - Nonmembers are encouraged to apply, but will be required to become an MNWCA member upon acceptance. 

    - Here's where you can find details and submission info: prospectus_LandL.pdf
