So You Want to ... go to ESA
Hey, two students from the Etobicoke School of the Arts are doing alright in the National Gallery Contest, but both need your votes to crack the top 12: Matt Ledwidge's Landscape-tools and Alex Bailey's Regent Park One are almost too mature for this stage of the competition where (after friends and family are pressed into making their likes known) the public votes tend to consume the most easily digestible pieces. Anyways, Matt got in touch with us and directed us to ESA's site where we learned that he and Alex were entered into the makeart competition. We were pretty pumped to realize their entries were part of our personal top 12 entries. Matt - don't be subtle - ask for a like - ya gotta be obvious! Again, we don't like artist statements, but theirs are good at supporting their own artworks. ESA can be found at http://www.esainfo.ca/
This is a place for young artists to get wider audiences and reap the recognition they so deserve. The Canada School is the place to display Canadian student work to the world. Email submissions or questions to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or comment on the artwork under the posts.
Many of these kids need funds for university. If you like a work or want to commission something for your private collection, we can pass on a message to the artist. Don't delay!
