Submission Season

I've been busy the past couple of weeks getting submissions in the mail for upcoming shows and exhibits.  Fall is "showtime" and I've decided to enter some of my pieces in various places.  I haven't participated in anything outside the GA Nat'l Fair and the Columbus Artists' Guild show in several years, so it took some logistical thinking to decide which pieces to submit to which venues.  The dates often overlap and I didn't want to have two pieces committed to different events at the same time.  I'll post the info on these shows as I receive confirmation of acceptance of my work.

My "Smoky Mountain High" will be on display for the month of August at the Rankin Gallery in Columbus, GA, along with the other Patron Award winners from the Artists' Guild show in June.

I will be presenting a trunk show of my art quilts to the Georgia Friendship Quilt Guild on Wednesday, August 1st at 10:30 a.m.  They meet at the Freeman Poole Multipurpose Center at 4025 South Hurt Road, Smyrna, GA.  If you're in the area, I'm sure you'd be welcome to stop by.  I hope Louise (my GPS) will be on top of her game, since I've only been to Smyrna once in my life.

I finished another landscape, titled "Black Hills September", this past month.  It's based on a photo I took many years ago on a visit to South Dakota.  The trunk show will be the first time it's been out in public.  Here's a sneak preview for you. 

In the meantime, I'm plodding away on quilting my latest bed quilt.  This one's for my bed and it seems to be taking forever.  I'll be glad to finish it and get back to my art work.
