Wonderful news my dear watchers!
A couple weeks ago I chose to try my hand at entering three pieces of mine into a local juried art gallery. This was my second time to try and my most successful year yet. I entered my black and white photo "Eternity" (which can be viewed in my gallery) as well as an off-the-wall fox head 3D sculpture "What Doth the Fox Say" or "Sir Foxington" and a pastel drawing "From the Womb". I am sure most of you know the process of getting into a juried art gallery but for those who don't I will explain. To get into the gallery you must send in an application with your artist information and the information of your works along with pictures. These pieces must be gallery ready if chosen. Once you send in your application a panel reviews it and then makes a decision as jurors to allow your pieces in the gallery or to reject them. If you do get in another guest artist then judges all entries from all artists and chooses winners. Getting into a juried art gallery is the equivalent of getting an article published in a peer reviewed journal. It is a big deal and looks wonderful on a resume. I am proud to announce that all three of my pieces were admitted into the gallery. I am even PROUDER to announce that I received honorable mention for "What Doth the Fox Say" or "Sir Foxington" and third place for "From the Womb". There was a $100 cash prize for third place. The competition was brilliant and I cannot express how excited I am to have received these awards. I am graduating college this semester and these happy occasions make everything wonderful.
On a side note, I always received word yesterday that I will be receiving the Communication Design award at my university for outstanding performance. This is a high honor and another highlight to my semester.
I hope to upload good pictures of the winning pieces to my gallery along with several other works that I have recently created. I hope you all enjoy. Below are pictures of my two winning pieces. Forgive me for the poor quality. Also you can follow all of my artistic endeavors and such on my Instagram @elizgmac
