Juror Patsy Lindamood accepted two of my pieces, Balancing Act and Perspective, into this year's exhibition! 101 artists had entered 238 pieces of artwork, out of which 65 pieces were selected.
The Irving Art Association's 16th Annual National Animal Art Juried Competition opened on August 27th and will be open through September 29th, 2017, with an awards ceremony and reception on Sunday, September 10th, from 2 – 4pm at the Jaycee Park Center for the Arts in Irving, Texas. I was planning on making the long drive down when I mistakenly thought that it was the same weekend as Labor Day and thus would have given me a little more driving time, but unfortunately I won't be able to make it. If you can go, though, please take photos as I'd enjoy seeing them!
