Choosing Work for a Show

February 29, 2012

The deadline is just around the corner for Arts Alive, the local arts center’s annual juried show. I have agonized over what three pieces to enter in the show for the past month. I wanted very much to have the three large ones ready to enter, but I’ve finally accepted that it just isn’t going to happen. So I’m entering these three:

Haiku 80 - Acrylic and Graphite on Cradled Panel, 8x8"

Haiku 79 - Mixed media on cradled panel,8x8x2"

Haiku 78, Acrylic on Cradled Panel, 8x8x2"

Three pieces are the maximum that can be entered, and I always submit three. So we’ll see if they get in.

I rarely do juried art competitions any more, but this local show is a great one, and the opening reception is always a beautiful event.

My design work has kept me very busy lately, and tomorrow I’ll be gone most of the day. I hope you’re feeling inspired this week. I wish I had a little more time in the studio, but this too shall pass.

    How timely: trying to figure out work for a show myself. I agree on the beautiful texture in #80. Good luck, Martha!

      Thank you, Liz. I hope the juror can visualize the texture, since a photo doesn’t ever really show it all.
