I just found out that a piece I entered in a juried show in Greene County was accepted into the show!! I'm very happy. This was a really neat concept - They selected 6 specific spots in Greene County. You made art from any one of those spots. One of my daughters lives in Greene County (see Lavabo in Aquam in my links), so we drove around and took photographs at 4 of the spots. We each did art work for 1 spot (coincidentally different ones) and submitted it. She'll probably talk about hers on her blog, so I don't want to here. Mine is a beeswax collage done with a photocopy of a photo I shot at the spot in Catskill. It's a riverview and I ended up really being happy with my photo. The collage I had a really hard time getting started on...in fact it was about 48 hours from the deadline of emailing a photo of the finished piece and I was still saying "I'm just not entering." Well, happily, that is all behind me (thanks to my daughter "talking me down off the art ledge" so to speak) and I've been accepted into the show. So, until the next show I'm calm and collected. ha, ha Oh, yeah, this show will be August 2nd - Sept 20 at the Greene County Arts Council gallery in Windham. They have 2 galleries - one in Catskill and one in Windham - Some counties apparently actually value the arts. I don't think my county has even heard of the arts. Okay, that's an exaggeration, but you get what I'm saying.
ALSO, just found out that I'll be in a show with 2 other artists in Albany as part of the First Friday Art Night in September. So, that'll be very cool, too.
