Second Place Overall in the 24th Arts in Harmony 2019 Annual International Show

I’m happy to share that my painting Reconnaissance won Second Place Overall in the 24th Arts in Harmony 2019 Annual International Show! Arts in Harmony is a broad juried international exhibition with no discipline restrictions or show theme. As you may have read in my previous post about the show, it will continue to be viewable at the Hopkins Center for the Arts, 1111 Mainstreet, Hopkins, MN 55343, through Sunday, February 17, 2019. There are two subsequent traveling shows as well, so we’ll see if my work is selected for either or both of those once the main show ends.

Winning this award was a particularly pleasing result because for a couple weeks I thought Reconnaissance might not have even made it to the gallery space and instead ended up in a pile of undeliverable mail somewhere! For the first time ever in many years of shipping, the UPS staff member who created my shipping labels accidentally voided the first label - sending it from my address to the show pickup location - from UPS’s system when they created the prepaid return label instead of adding the prepaid return to my account as a second label. This meant that even though there was a shipping label on the box, UPS itself had no tracking ability or even any documentation at all that I had shipped a box with them, and scanners wouldn’t register system information about that label either. Luckily, the workers who handled my box’s transit must have relied on the good old-fashioned paper label with addresses in order to get it to its destination, because it clearly arrived on schedule!

I submitted two pieces (All Out and City Solstice) for consideration in this juried alumni show held during Penn's Alumni Weekend, and despite strong preference being given to submissions from artists definitely attending the event, my entries were also accepted!  (My own attendance is quite unlikely unless I happen to end up in the area at the same time, so I said no to definitely attending.)

So if you happen to be on or near Penn's campus from May 11-25, you should stop in to the Burrison Gallery to check them out.

From their website: The Gallery, located in the University Club at Penn on the 2nd floor of The Inn at Penn, 3611 Walnut Street, is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
