Both Leslie and Jason are participating in the competition for world's largest art prize, aptly named ArtPrize. It's taking place in Grand Rapids, Michigan, from September 23 to October 10, and the winners will be chosen democratically by the public without the involvement of electoral colleges.
Both entries have proven success in San Antonio already:
Leslie will be showing her Icarus Overland piece, previously seen in the Multiples Show at David Shelton Gallery. Her venue is Lightbox.
Jason's entry is his Eleven Strata and the Planetary Boundary installation, as seen before at Joan Grona, to be shown at The Old Federal Building.
Please send your sincerest, most effective good luck wishes, and if they work, you might get a cut of the winnings! Or not! Who knows!
Jason, Jax & Leslie
