Tiny Art Contest

One Contest. Two Prizes. Interested?

Anticipation is building for our upcoming 'Teeny Tiny Art Show' that opens September 12th. The exhibition is in collaboration with "The Enormous Tiny Art Show" at Nahcotta. Deb and I put our heads together and decided to hold a contest!

Tell Us About Your First Time...

Many first-time buyers took the plunge, so to speak, during the original Enormous Tiny Art Show earlier this year. Nahcotta and Three Graces Gallery think the Enormous Tiny Art Show II (at Nahcotta) and the Teeny Tiny Art Show (at Three Graces) in September might inspire similar virgin voyages of the art collecting sort.

So, in honor of that first purchase that made you jump up and down, gaze at its magnificence for hours, and rearrange your entire house to make it fit, we'd like you, in 250 words or less, to tell us about your first time. If we choose your story as the winning "My First Time" essay, you win a $50 gift certificate from both Nahcotta and Three Graces Gallery. Don't worry, we're not looking for Hemingway here - it's the essence and passion and honesty of your stories that will make you a contender.

Submit your stories to us at Use the subject line "My First Time."
Deadline is Sunday, September 9th. Winner announced Wednesday, September 12th, the opening day of Nahcotta's Enormous Tiny Art Show II and Three Graces' Teeny Tiny Art Show. Your first time was a memorable rite of passage. Now it's time to tell your story.
