    I have been made aware that some divers are holding back from entering the art exhibit because they feel that they are "amateurs" competing against "Professionals". The CDS has graciously had plenty of wall space built to accommodate entries of all levels. So if you have had any interest in entering please do not feel intimidated.

    MA, I see there is a fee for the art show. is this an entry fee for artists, or does everyone viewing the exhibit have to pay. I am pretty sure I know the answer, but it needs clarification, or there won't be many attendees.

    The fee looks to be for those entering (having been a volunteer at one point in an art gallery I know this to be common practice). I have a piece I want to submit. I just keep dragging my feet on getting things together. I'll get things ready today so I can get it ready for submission. If I want to be able to sell prints of an original work, can I do so? (The piece is a painting, so I'm wanting to know if I can have the painting on display/for sale as an original, and have the option of selling printed copies as well). I may do this via an ordering sheet instead of prints on hand, as I don't want to print a bunch of copies if no one is interested in purchasing any prints. Let me know if this would be ok to do. I am looking foward to it.

    You are right Forrest, it possibly sounds like the art exhibit is only for 15 minutes, although the mention is under speakers. Actually, that is a time slot for Michael to speak about it. Will come up with a way to convey that.

    Can you also provide clarification on whether entries into the art contest must purchase a workshop ticket/attend the workshop...the statements from the registration website are unclear.

    "Art Exhibit Entry includes workshop ticket at the discounted NSS-CDS rate. Includes up to four digital image entries. There is a $5.00 fee for each additional artwork above four. Details of 2D artwork count as an additional artwork. Sculptors may provide one additional view per artwork without cost. Artists accepted to exhibit will not be charged additional fees of any kind. If the artist wishes to attend the workshop they may purchase their entry ticket at the discounted NSS-CDS rate.

    So does anyone wishing to look at the art have to pay a separate entrance fee or is it included in the workshop ticket?

    Actually I meant the $15 fee. It looks like everyone, including viewers have to pay $15.
    Look at ffdiver5597's post above.

    I dont see any $15 fees attached to any part of the art exhibit. teh art exhibit is on Saturday

    There is a clinic on Sunday that has a $15 fee which is not affiliated with the art show. It is something totally different.
