GDCTA Searches Featured Artists for the 2006 Year-End Gala

Friday, May 13, 2005

The Georgia Dressage and Combined Training Association (GDCTA) has launched a search for Featured Artists for the 2006 Year-End Gala’s Featured Artist Gallery. Beginning April 15, 2005 and running through December 1, 2005, the GDCTA Gala Committee will be considering artists' works to be featured at the 2006 Year-End Gala’s Featured Artists Gallery, which will be held in January 2006. Local artists are encouraged to apply, as well as attend the event. The selected artists will not be limited by geography or theme, although, an equine theme is helpful.

On January 22, 2005, GDCTA held its annual awards banquet in a “gala” atmosphere, which was enhanced by the magnificent equine paintings of artist Susan Easton Burns. Ms. Burns set up a number of her original paintings in a gallery style allowing the 220 attendees to view them at leisure during the cocktail hour. As part of the arrangement, she donated a percentage of her sales to GDCTA, which resulted in a generous tax-deductible donation. In celebration of the success of the inaugural Featured Artist, the GDCTA Gala Committee is seeking more and varied artists for the 2006 Year-End Gala’s Featured Artists Gallery.

"The gallery format within the Gala adds an elegant touch to the annual awards banquet—very cutting-edge in this industry," said Lisa Seger, the GDCTA Gala Committee Chairwoman. "We expect a tremendous response to the ‘Featured Artists Gallery’ from both the artists and the Gala attendees in 2006."

To be considered, an artist must send a biography and photos of works to or to the following address:

GDCTA Gala Committee
c/o Lisa Seger
150 Providence Plantation Drive
Alpharetta, GA 30004

Due to space limitations, please note the size of your works in your submission. Submissions must be postmarked no later than December 1, 2005.
