Fall Art Show Time

I was informed this week that all three of my entries were accepted into our local guild show by the juror.  The painting above is one of them.  Our local guild has two major shows each year and one smaller show. The fall show, "A Visual Harvest," is always held at Gaston College in a large gallery area that is quite nice for viewing the pieces. The show is simultaneous to the student art show held in a different building. Since I don't do a lot of shows, these local shows make me motivated, excited, and nervous all at once. We have no galleries in town for selling opportunities, though we have quite a few really good artists who live and work in our area. Given the economic climate today, it is great to have a local opportunity to display art and meet art lovers who will come to the show.

Here is the information on the show for all who read this blog and would like to come:
"A Visual Harvest" Juried Exhibition
Opening Reception: October 28, 2010 6-9 pm
Gaston College, Jeanne Rauch Gallery
201 Highway 321 South
Dallas, North Carolina 28034

The show will run from Oct. 28 through Dec. 15
