Please contact via email letting me know of your desire to be included in this exhibit and also let me know how many pieces of art you would like to have exhibited - and I will get back to you soon,

ATTENTION PHOTOGRAPHERS: CALL FOR EXHIBIT PHOTOS:

The DAL has need for good photos of our outdoor shows and indoor exhibitions to be used for publicity, particularly for our basic brochure and website. If you are participating in a show or visiting a show the DAL would appreciate your taking some photographs. We would like photos that emphasize the quality and popularity of our shows and exhibitions.

An ideal photo of our Artists in the Park would see 3 or more tents with lots of people obviously interested in the work and enough of a background to know its in a park. An ideal photo of our indoor exhibitions would see multiple pieces of art on the wall(s) (not City Hall) with lots of people interested.

Send digital photos to:   dalthings@gmail.com
