Deadline is March 15 for Nic's "Sensational Small Stuff Invitational"

From the web site of the Nicolaysen Art Museum in Casper:

Our "Sensational Small Stuff Invitational" (formerly "Postcards from the Wild Wild West") exhibition is coming up April 15-30, with the party and auction set for Friday evening, April 23. We hope that you'll participate by submitting your art and then join us for this important and fun event.

Here is how SSSI submission works:

Since the exhibition and auction is a fundraiser for the museum, your work is a donation to the museum. The proceeds – over $15,000 last year – are specifically dedicated to supporting our educational and outreach programming.
The deadline for submission is Monday, March 15, 2010. All entries must be mailed or delivered to the museum by that date.
Submissions are limited to 3 per artist and a completed application must accompany each submission. An application is enclosed which can be copied or you can print one from our website
Works in any media are welcome; size is the only limiting factor. We ask that your work be no larger than 5 x 7 inches. Especially welcome are small sculptural and three-dimensional works –wood, ceramics, metal, glass, jewelry, etc – but please adhere to the roughly 5 x 7 inch proportions for height, width, and depth
We can accept only original work. No prints or reproductions will be accepted.
Please frame your work and prepare it for hanging or display.

Get your registration form here.

The exhibition will be open for the week prior to the auction to enable our visitors to begin bidding on the works. On the night of the auction the bidding is fast, furious, and lots of fun – and all submitting artists are invited to be our special guests for all the excitement! Please call (307-235-5247) or email ( in advance if you plan to attend.

If you know of an artist who might like to participate in the Sensational Small Stuff Invitational, please pass along these guidelines. If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to call us at 307-235-5247 and ask for Val or Ingrid.
