Call for “A Way to Women’s Wellness” 2011 ArtBra Submissions

art-bra-calendar

As founder of “A Way to Women’s Wellness, Inc.”, I began the non-profit foundation in 2003, when I began to invite friends to create embellished bras. The term ArtBra was born and we continue to create ArtBras for our annual WTWW ArtBra calendar and exhibitions. 100% of the net proceeds from the sale of the ArtBra calendars are donated to different breast cancer centers.

Our group also designs a crazy quilt every year, which we donate to a breast cancer center.

This year the WTWW ArtBra Exhibit will appear at the Houston Quilt Festival and at national conferences of the American Sewing Guild and Embroidery Guild of America.

This year’s deadline for ArtBra entries is June 5th. Bras should arrive at the RibbonSmyth Studio no later than June 5th to be considered for inclusion in the 2011 ArtBra Calendar. Area photographers and quilt book editors will select the 2011 Calendar ArtBras. All bras submitted will appear at this year’s exhibitions.

Complete submission guidelines may be downloaded at www.artbra.org. There is also a gallery featuring the latest ArtBra arrivals.

For additional information please contact Victoria Brown at info@artbra.org.

    FYI, per the information on the site, the deadline to enter is MAY 1. The date you mention is related to mailing once your bra has been accepted.

    I think you are correct Sophie. They sent me the content, so I just posted what was sent. Thanks for pointing out the clarification.

    Cheers,
