Dear Nate,

I hope my letter finds you well,

Thank you for your submission to Art Against the Odds. We are thrilled to be able to show your artwork as part of this exhibition. For your record and for any family and friends that you would like to invite to the exhibitions, I have included the dates and locations below. Please note that the Madison exhibition which was previously going to be held at he Downtown Public Library is no longer occurring in their exhibition space. We will still be showing the work in Madison (hopefully at the end of 2023), but the venue is yet to be detrmined.

Along with this letter I have included an inventory of all the work that we have received from you with the information regarding each artwork. If there is an error in any attributions of the artwork, please contact us so that we can make a correction.

• The Inaugural exhibition will be held at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (MIAD) at the Frederick Layton Gallery (273 E Erie St, Milwaukee, WI 53202) from January 16, 2023 to March 11, 2023

• There will be a second exhibition held in Manitowoc at the Rahr-West Art Museum (610 n 8th St, Manitowoc, WI 54220) from June 4 through August 6, 2023

• The Exhibition will travel to Madison in September of 2023 to January of 2024 (dates and venue forthcoming)

• The Fourth Exhibition will be held at the Neville Public Museum, (210 Museum Pl, Green Bay, WI 54303). March 16 through May 19, 2024

We will still accept submissions at this time from new artists if you would like to share this opportunity with anyone else, however, we will probably not be able to include new submissions in our print catalog. Work can be submitted until October 15th for inclusion in the exhibition.

Thank you so much for your participation in the project, please feel free to contact us by mail, email, or phone if you have questions (preferred phone hours: Weds-Sat 10a-5p)
