First entry of the year

The Umpqua Valley Art Association, located in Roseburg, placed their annual call to artists. After a week of deliberation I decided to enter.  Today, being the final entry day (must be postmarked with this date), I pulled out a couple of sculptural images with potential. I would love to enter the leaf coat but it was created too many years ago. Most galleries are wanting work no older than 2 years. So I reformatted and labeled 3 images: 2 created for the Art About Agriculture show back in 2011, and the odd ball recent Moby print.  Probably should have just sent the 2 sculptures but I couldn’t resist adding the print. I’m paying to submit up to 3 works, so what the heck! The gallery/arts center had a very easy online entry. No pain what so ever and it allowed me to avoid going to the post office! Hurray!

This year I’m hoping to enter more juried shows. Little Corvallis sees enough of my work. Now it’s time for other cities and people to get their chance… if I get accepted! The juror is a Portland gallery curator.

Now I can forget all about it!

Saturday I’ll drop off a work (the Rivers test piece below) into the Corvallis Arts Center for their annual “Howland Community Open”. Always fun! Noon to 4pm entry.
