I had an awesome day last Sunday going to the opening for the new exhibition at Charles H. Taylor Center - Virginia Juried Artists Exhibition! I couldn't be more excited to have a piece be selected from 834 entries when only 118 were selected to be IN the show! I didn't place but I felt better about not getting an award once I saw the majority of people that did were 15+ years older than me! I felt like a youngin' amongst the crowd! Here's to many more art shows in my future!! You can see the the post card with all the artist names on it and a few pictures from the day!
The show runs through September 7th at the Charles H. Taylor Arts Center in Hampton, VA!
I really enjoyed building the frame myself! Its just simple poplar wood lattice from Lowe's and I followed this simple tutorial on "STRIP FRAMING" or 'LATTICE FRAMING" we did this in college at JMU as well - its simple, affordable and it looks awesome I think! I left mine unstained :-)
