Quick Update

Today I’m posting some photos of my work. The following pieces were accepted into some juried exhibitions and I wanted to share my excitement here.

Like crazy, I have been entering some competitions for 3D artwork.  Last week I found out three of my pieces made it in.  The first was one of my “rhino” minis.  It’s about 3.75 by 3.5 by 3.75 inches.  It’s pretty tiny.  It was accepted to a “small works” exhibition put on by the Clay Studio in Philadelphia.  Since I used to live in Philly, this was such exciting news!!!  If you’re in the Philadelphia area, be sure to check it out, Small Favors XI opens on March 25, 2016 but you can find more information here.

The same day I found out about the small piece getting accepted into that show, I also found out two of my other pieces were accepted into a different juried exhibition.  These pieces were both made last year, one in the spring and the other in the fall.  It makes me happy to finally have my pieces be shown.  These two were juried into an exhibition for the National Association of Women Artists.  You can check out the exhibition artists’ work on their website.  Please check it out and feel free to share the link with the world.

Soon I will post the photos of all my new works since last summer.  For now, I need to finish my many works in progress and make new pieces.  Thanks for stopping by.

New Year = New Possibilities

Hello readers, happy new year 2015!!  I hope wonderful things come your way in the coming year!

Let me tell you about our Online Photo Exhibition if you haven’t read about it yet.  It is the very first of its kind for Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts who is finally making an online presence.  Well, I’m happy to announce that our online exhibition was successful.  It’s juried and up for viewing here!!

It means so much to us at CAFA that we were able to reach so many fine art photographers to participate in this competition.  We had photographers from Australia, Norway, and nearly 25 states from the USA were represented.  This is the kind of results I want to see for our competitions.

Our juror Michael Yurgeles was magnificent at electing a diverse group of highly skilled compositions.  I encourage everyone to take 5 to 10 minutes to integrate yourself with the photographs we are presenting in our exhibition.  You won’t be disappointed.

In the coming weeks, I will write a piece about some of the artists in the exhibition.  I want to give you a more in-depth look into their passionate work.  Until then, I hope your eyes feasts on the beauty of each image we present.

Unveiling an Exhibition

YES!!!

IT IS DONE! Well, at least the first part of it all.

Let me fill you in, it’s only fair. I’m talking about the juried online exhibition I have prepared for CAFA (Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts).

The prospectus is finally up on our website (here), and the marketing has begun to travel through the web of tweeters, facebookers, bloggers, artist call websites, etc.

We start taking submissions on October 20th.  So, to all photographers out there, get your best shots ready!!

If you know any photographers, don’t hesitate to pass this one to them.  It’s our first online show and we are so excited because we will reach an even bigger number of artists through this channel.  Not only is it our first online exhibition but we are NOW accepting international artists!  We will be expanding our artist community and that makes me so happy.  I also start thinking about future possibilities for this organization.  While we maintain our highest standards in art selection, we don’t leave any artist out that is intending to create fine art.

If you’d like to connect with CAFA, you can visit our website or click here to like our Facebook page and keep up with our updates!!

With that I leave you…onto my next hunt for art related events.
