For the fifth year in a row, I competed in the Metropolitan Arts Council “Flat Out Under Pressure” and this year I was one of the eight winners. Woo Hoo! This competition, sponsored by MAC, is a yearly challenge for each artist to take a blank canvas to the MAC office and have the canvas stamped to indicate that it is, in fact, a blank canvas. Then the artists have 24 hours to create their masterpiece and return the freshly painted canvas to the MAC office, where it is judged. The eight winners have their art displayed on a recycle bin in the downtown and WestEnd areas of Greenville. Such a cool win-win for Greenville and her artists!
