In the broad seven county areas that we cover, it is sometimes difficult to deliver your own paintings to a show for entry and pick up. The good news is there are volunteer couriers among us . . . and they drive! You will need to contact them directly and make arrangements to transfer your art work and fill out the entry forms. If you are willing to serve as a volunteer courier from your area from time to time, please contact us at .
