Since it is a drawing of a classical nude...you should write about maybe
what your purpose for drawing it was...people might want to know about the
fact for instance that you are studying how light hits the human form (skin)
etc...or you are studying the proportions of the figure...if you just like
drawing the female nude...thats cool too, but I always think that its more
interesting to hear what the artists was going after in the style, approach,
etc...rather than I just like drawing the nude female form...etc...Just my
two cents...congrats on getting selected...a very good friend of mine lives
in Dallas...will have to ask her is she has been to this arts center...good
luck on the statement...

Subject: Artist Statement
I am rusy at writing artist's statement...I need some advice. I
have an artwork that has been selected to be exhibited at the Latino
Cultural ARts Center in Dallas, TX.
It is a classical nude drawn with charcoal.
I was wondering if anyone out there can give me some advice or share
with me examples of his or her artist's statement.
I also have some good news for the 2004 Fuego y Alma International
Latino Music and Arts Festival. It will be held on October 9th in
Denton, Texas. We will have Jesus Moroles as judge for the Collegiate
ARt Competition. We may also have a Professional Art Competition. I
will send more information about the festival as we prepare it.
