Sylvia Bandyke :


   *R.G.Endres Gallery International Juried Photo Competition 2020 Exhibition, sponsored by the Prairie Village Arts Council of Prairie Village, KS. 

* Sylvia was accepted into another online international exhibit. This theme was figurative and here's her entry titled Best Friends. 

If you're interested in seeing all the accepted photo submissions, then please click on the link below.


Three of Sylvia's recent collages were accepted into this online, international exhibit by Linus Galleries, pertaining to the theme of Spirit. Turns out it's such a pertinent theme for what we're coping with right now (entered back in Feb). There are many strong, powerful works shown in the video...  Sylvia's work is toward the end. 


Accepted artists for Spirit. It's a great bunch from all over the world.

Attention ASD Artists!

The remaining canvas that was not used at the Floorcloth Challenge is available for purchasing.

 You can contact Janet Dale to request a section and arrange to pick up their fabric. You can then pay via the ASD PayPal account and print out the receipt or pay Jan directly. If you use PayPal, you must give Jan a copy of the receipt in order to pick up. The price is $1 per square foot.  Jan will keep track of the 2.5 yards that we still have and issue receipts for each person who pays her directly.

Since you will be purchasing it for your own use, it makes sense that you can use it for whatever purpose you wish.

For Jan's and everybody's safety, please refrain if you or anyone in your household is sick.

Coming soon!

A funny, heartwarming adventure written and illustrated by a couple of Scottish Terrier lovers, A Tail of Two Scotties tells the story of Piper and Mac, stubborn Scotties who are opposites in many ways. When their human family takes a trip to Grandma’s farm without the dogs, the terriers are none-too-happy about missing out on a visit to their favorite getaway spot.

Managing to escape from their house, Piper and Mac decide to make their way to Grandma’s on their own, encountering a series of dangers on their long journey. And with both of them being leaders rather than followers, this presents the Scotties with some major challenges.

Whether the independent canines can overcome their differences is anyone‘s guess in this fast-moving doggie tail!
