Community Curates Week 3

July 18th, 2011

We’ve encountered an unexpected result in last week’s voting! We had a tie for second place. As a result, we’ll be hosting a tie-breaking vote on our Facebook Fan Page in our Window Wednesday album. If you want to help settle the tie between Milne’s Red Church and Seguin’s Untitled, be sure to like us on Facebook to recieve the notification we have posted the showdown! Bevington’s Tracks was our first place winner. 

In this week’s voting we present five diverse works for your consideration. Be sure to vote and let us know what you think in the comments. Thank you!
