"Honey Bunny" News

American Women Artists Annual Exhibition ... the Bunny Is In!

Well, this is pretty exciting.

Many of the juried exhibits I enter work with to present photos of artists' work to the jurors. I put up portfolios to the site, get notified of Calls for Art, and have a control panel to manage applications and check results.

Today there is a green check mark (that's good) next to my entry "Honey Bunny" for the American Women Artists Juried National Members Exhibit being held at K. Newby Gallery + Sculpture Garden, November 2 to November 25, 2012 in Tubac, AZ. The jurors select around 60 paintings from entrants around the country. Most exhibits are much larger generally making the odds of acceptance better. I'm happy to have made the cut. Hooray!

I was excited about that green check and it does a lot to offset red x's. Randy mistakenly sent my green check to the archive ... so now it's disappeared from the application page. It's a visual thing.

Tomorrow I'll be painting at the Torpedo Factory, Studio #333, 2-9pm. That's the plan. If you're making the trek on one of my scheduled days, check my blog for any updates. Thanks!
