Wimberley Valley Art League Juried Show
Last night was the opening of the Wimberley Valley Art League Juried Show where my painting, "Well?" placed third among the 2-D entries (behind 2 photos). It was the only painting that placed above an honorable mention. Having seen the delivery of many of the entries, a lot of them very good paintings, I was very surprised that there were not more works on display.
The process for juried shows was explained to me by a fellow Art League member, shedding some light. The League asks a different gallery owner or art expert unassociated with the League to be the sole jurist for each juried show. The jurist for this particular show owns a contemporary art gallery in Johnson City.
