Calling All Artists...

As a glass artist and having friends who work in various mediums, I wanted to share this Call For Artists.  I hope some of us enter and wouldn't it be fun, if one of us won it?  This one touches lives.
Best of luck to you all.  -- Marcy

Evergreen Fine Art Gallery, located in beautiful Evergreen, Colorado, is proud to present our first annual competition to design our beloved Evergreen Angel™. Evergreen Fine Art is in its 20th year of designing the Hospice Angel. This year we are doing something exciting and opening it up as a contest for artists.

The Evergreen Angel™ is a cherished collectable known throughout the country. It is purchased for everything from births, celebrations, graduations; for mothers, fathers, daughters, sons, those who need hope and comfort; cancer survivors; as a memory keep- sake for a loved one. This little angel has come to symbolize strength, hope and celebration. It has touched so many universally and has benefited Hospice for over 20 years. This year we would like to give artists the opportunity to design the angel. After being selected, the design will be transferred into a mould and cast as a piece of fine sterling silver (or by special order, gold) to become a cherished collectable. All work is done in the United States.
