Boston Mills Jury - Round II

On March 26, Boston Mills sent out the following e-mail to artists that unknowingly had problems with their application last month.

Dear Artist,
Growing pains inevitably accompany any new system of doing things, and we have had a few growing pains with our new system of jurying for the Boston Mills Artfest. We tried to make our application as easy as possible, and we also tried to extend the deadline as long as we possibily could to give people more time to figure out the new application process.

Unfortunately, there were a handful of artists whose applications were found to be incomplete on jurying weekend for various reasons. And because of the later deadline, we did not always catch the incompletes in time to contact the artists and have them fill in the missing information before jurying. You are one of those artists whose work was not juried in February - and this is because we either did not receive images from you, or the images that we did receive were not able to be opened or viewed correctly.

Don't worry, though, you can still be considered for a spot in the 2009 Boston Mills Artfest. This email is to let you know of an alternate jurying process that we are holding just for you. If you can get us your digital images by Tuesday, March 31st, we will review them and let you know whether you are accepted into the show.  

If you have any additional questions or concerns, please feel free to call or email them over as well. We appreciate your patience as we work though these growing pains, and we look forward to considering your images for our second jurying.
