RAWards 2012

We have until October 15th, you can cast a vote one time per day..
I hope you will consider to throw your vote into the hat for Fashion Designer of the Year http://www.rawartists.org/undertheroot

      In February 2012, I submitted the work here at Under The Root to be a part of Portland RAWartists and was chosen to participate in their opening show Activate for the new season 2012.  With Joann Schinderle at the helm, she is golden and it was firework explosive.  They were wonderful and I met some grand artists, network and collaborators.  RAWArtists has a RAWards every year compiled of musicians, designers, fine artists, accessories designers, sculptors, jewelry designers, video artists, and all the artists from many mediums across our national landscape.
     Under The Root was also chosen to participate in these awards and I can really use some support in the public voting arena.  As you can imagine, the prize package is substantial with this national competition.. here are some of the opportunities to breathe some eco into the planet.
