From the Editor: Moving forward in grand style with two great exhibits

This month we're continuing to celebrate our 7th anniversary with two very special events I'd like to bring to your attention. First off is a ground-breaking juried show, hosted joined by EBSQ and our partner, Imagekind. The Art of the Equestrian will be available for entry between October 1-25, after which time it will go to our juror, Eva Sandor. The results will be announced jointly between EBSQ and Imagekind, and the show will continue on Imagekind's site for the full month of November. What's particularly special about this show is that every single piece entered will be available as a fine-art reproduction from Imagekind with the proceeds going directly to the original artist. We're really excited about this joint-venture, and we hope you will be too!

Another big event this month is EBSQ's Think Pink exhibit to benefit the Susan G Komen Foundation to support breast cancer research and education. EBSQ is participating as art of the Komen Foundation's Passionately Pink for the Cure intiative. If you're a participating artist or simply a site patron that appreciates this exhibit and supports this cause, we request that you contribute a $5 or greater donation. EBSQ will be sending a pink ribbon pin and some EBSQ goodies to the first 50 participants that contribute. EBSQ will also be offering Think Pink t-shirts via our new EBSQ Bling Shop, and 100% of our Think Pink gear profits will also be donated to the Komen Foundation as part of this fundraiser.

And if you think these projects are fun, we invite you to sign up for next month's 7th Annual Portrait Swap as well as share your ideas about what you'd like to see on the 2008 exhibition schedule. All this and more can be found on the EBSQ Member Forums

Let's make October magical!
