And guess what? You can vote for my Swift Swallowtails! This was my first juried submission, and Iâ€™ve been holding my breath to see how that would work out. So I was thrilled when my name was on the list of selected artists. V A L I D A T I O N !
You can vote for your favorite art via text message orÂ VisitClarkStreet.comÂ from noon April 20 until 4 p.m May 5.Â Voting instructions will be available atÂ VisitClarkStreet.comÂ and also at participating businesses.

I hope to see you there!
