I have never submitted any of my prints for consideration at a gallery before, but a few weeks ago I saw the call for art for the 45th annual juried art exhibit at the Lyndon House here in Athens. I thought that it would be something new, something different, and could be a really fun way to meet other local artists. When I showed up to deliver my prints that would be considered, there were a LOT of people there. I later found out that over 700 works of art were submitted for the show, and while I am proud of my work I wasn’t sure if it would be accepted or not.
I am happy to share that all three of my prints were accepted by juror Larry Ossei-Mensah, who is the curator for the Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit. I am truly honored, and I cannot wait to see my large metal prints hanging in the gallery under perfect lighting (the lighting in my home is far from perfect!). The opening reception is March 5th from 6-8, and my work will hang until May 2nd. If you have never been to the Lyndon House, it is a very nice space that is full of art from local and regional artists. Plus, it is free admission!
