What an exhausting day. Really a day of excitment—the 1st National Juried Photography show was hung today at the Workhouse Arts Center. I was joined by my fellow photogs, Carol & Ed (w/ his wife, Marti & their friend Sue) to hang 68 pieces of striking photography. Most of the photographers that juried into the show are from the Washington, DC area, but it really was exciting to see several photographers from out of state! We have one person from New Mexico and one from Connecticut! Of course I got even more excited when I found out that the person from Connecticut is one of my old high school friends… talk about a small world.
The show will be judged by the juror (Ann Shumard, the Curator of Photographs from the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C) this Friday. My fingers are crossed… will my piece Carnival get an honorable mention, 3rd, 2nd or wait… I know…. a 1st place award!!!. Guess I’ll have to wait and see :-).
The artist reception for this special show will be August 9, 2-4pm. Workhouse Art Center, Building W-16. 9601 Ox Rd., Lorton, VA.
Hope to see all of you there……. there’s more exciting news on the horizon! And of course I’ll be sure to post photos from the show.
