CR Newsletter: November/December 2012

Wed Dec 19, 2012, 4:06 AM

An Introduction



Hallo, and welcome to the last Abstract & Surreal Photography missive for 2012, written for the bi-monthly Community Relations newsletter. Here you'll find relevant information from the last two months in Abstract & Surreal art, although for this edition it's just the last nineteen days! As this is my first truncated newsletter, the contents are somewhat haphazard: I promise I'll have something more concrete together for the next edition.

Instead, I shall formally introduce myself. My name is Darren - although most people call me D - and I'm the new Community Volunteer for Abstract & Surreal photography. I am glad to represent the community here on deviantART, and I hope that the next twelve months are productive for everyone. I will also take this opportunity to formally thank DpressedSoul for his work in this position over the last year, and for his support since. I hope I can maintain the high standard that he set throughout his tenure!

In Closing



That's it for this month. In future I'll hope to include more information about current contests, events and group activity but for now, I ask that you check out Abstract-and-Surreal's four word poem contest; while it is literary, it is definitely abstract in nature. Additionally, their monthly photographic contest revolves around winter/Christmas abstract colours. Get your entries in for both! For those of you who run other groups or are involved with contests, let me know about them; I'll be happy to report that information through these channels.

Until next time!
