RE: [Marbling] gathering in Xinjiang
- Dear Tom,
Thanks so much for the invitation to participate in the exhibition.
I had a few questions regarding submissions:
You indicated unframed pieces were to be submitted. Should these pieces
also be without mats?
Is there a size preference?
What information (if any) about the artist, medium, techniques, etc. is
Thanks so much.
Also, do you know where I might go to learn more about the exhibition and
the museum? (For instance a source where I might be able to print/procure a
flyer, program or exhibition announcement?)
Thanks for all of your assistance. I truly appreciate your help. Although
I won't have to time to produce a new piece for the exhibition, I will see
if I have an existing piece which may be suitable for submission.
