I am pleased to announce that two of my works were juried into the 2018 Juried Art Show at the Blackford County Arts Center. This is the first time I’ve entered this show so I didn’t quite know what to expect. Both FREE SPIRIT and COLORS OF FLIGHT were accepted. Artists could submit three works for one entry fee. I also submitted TULIPS OF FIRE, but it was not accepted. I received a call yesterday from the gallery director informing me that COLORS OF FLIGHT had been awarded 4th place over all, so that was wonderful news.
I was not able to attend the opening reception due to the distance from home to the gallery so I have not yet seen the rest of the show. The evening of the reception I was delivering other artwork to the Indiana State Fair Competition and Sale. The Blackford show is about a 2 hour drive east of home and the State Fair is about 1.5 hours south of home. My husband’s workplace is halfway between home and the Blackford show so he has been delivering and picking up [the unaccepted piece] for me after he gets off work in the evenings. Makes for a very long day for him. He’s awesome.
Here are the details for the Blackford show if anyone local would like to check it out.
