I have some great news! I recently was just accepted into the Raw Natural Artists community, and was selected to participate in their Solstice showcase this month. The event takes place on June 21st, and will include a variety of talented artists throughout various creative mediums including music, film, fashion, photography and art. The event will also be covered by local press and media which is exciting! Here’s the really awesome part: Raw gets tons of applications from local artists and hand picks who they want to showcase. They actually contacted me for this event and I hadn’t even applied! I am extremely flattered.
What is RAW?
