There will be an ART SHOW at the Narcolepsy Network Conference, Friday, October
8 - Sunday, October 10, 2010 in Arlington, Virginia.
Organizers Pam Sabourin + Laura Evert wish to encourage each of you to
participate! The art show will include a display of art pieces that express the
artist's life with narcolepsy, sleep (or the lack there of) + dreams. We would
also love to see art + crafts made by those with narcolepsy where a direct link
to their narcolepsy may not be as clear.
You need not be a distinguished artist, poet, writer, painter, sculptor,
photographer, or filmmaker to take part. By living with narcolepsy you have
something important to contribute, whether art or craft. Let's see what you have
Please let Laura or Pam know the following prior to the conference, preferably

 ARTIST'S STATEMENT: please include a brief statement (no longer than 1/2 of
a letter size page or so, please) about yourself + your art or craft piece(s).

We will be taking photographs + putting together a follow-up piece about the all
the works on display + the people who made them. Your permission will be asked
to make sure you want to be included.
If you would like to share MORE THAN TWO pieces of work, please contact Laura or
Pam to make sure we have the space available.
There is no fee to participate but each artist is responsible for all costs
related to their art or craft, including shipping costs if you will not be
bringing the work yourself. A PRE-PAID RETURN SHIPPING LABEL ( from FedEx of
UPS) MUST BE INCLUDED WITH ALL WORKS SHIPPED. You are also completely
responsible for the well being of your art [i.e. must pack it well, see that it
arrives, set it up (unless shipping + not attending), etc]. Please bring/include
a table top easel with your work if you can.
If you are not bringing your artwork with you or are not attending, we will have
you ship your artwork to a local Narcolepsy Network member who will transport it
to the conference on Friday afternoon. Please contact Pam or Laura for this
