This is Galilee (TIG) Newsletter, Issue #015 -- New Competition - Summer 2012
June 22, 2012
ART GALLERY AND NEW COMPETITION FOR SUMMER 2012
Welcome to the Galilee Newsletter - A monthly e-zine about the north of Israel and all that's new at this-is-galilee.com (TIG)
This month, I'm starting a new competition! See more details below.
KIBBUTZ MORAN ART GALLERY
I was interested to meet the artist, Etti Mikler-Abergil, who explained to me about the different mediums she uses. Some of her artwork is displayed on the walls but most of it is hidden away in drawers and I was fascinated as she pulled out a variety of beautiful etchings as well as Aquarelle and Acrylic paintings. You can see here a picture of Etty holding up two of them.
Etty shares the Art Gallery with a talented friend who makes stunning silver jewellery with really original designs, but unfortunately I didn't get to meet her this time. I will make a point of going again and I'll put photos on my site so you can see what I mean - maybe next time I go to buy bread!
MY GALILEE STORY
If you have read my story you will know that when we moved to the Galilee, our dream was to build a house here. Our dream turned into a beaurocratic nightmare, and we came very close to selling off the land at some point. But it's hard to give up on a dream, so we battled on and I'm excited to say that at last we've started building. We still have a long way to go, of course, but it's a beginning!
This is all part of my Galilee Story and it made me think that this would be a great idea for my next competition - more about it below ...
YOUR GALILEE STORY
Well, six months has gone by since my first competition - the Northern Israel Photography Contest 2011, which ended in January 2012. I had a lot of fun with this and I made contact with some interesting people and talented photographers.
This time, I want to give the story-writers a turn! The subject is ... yes, you guessed it ... My Galilee Story - but this is YOUR story. It doesn't have to be a literary masterpiece - in fact, it can be about anything you want - just so long as it's connected to the Galilee.
I like to keep things simple, so there are only two rules:
This time there will be a prize for the winner and also a prize for the runner-ups - all "Made In Israel". This is just a preview ... I will be putting a page on my site with full details on how to enter by the end of this month. So keep in touch! Here's how ...
