Show at Silvermine

Just made it through the first round of judging for the Silvermine Artist Guild's Art of the Northeast Annual Show. The jurors have approved pictures of the above work, Arcadian Starting Line (24"x48"), and now will judge the work in person. I'll be dropping off the piece next Monday, and by the 29th I'll know if the work will hang in the show.

From Silvermine's website:
"Art of the Northeast, is one of the most anticipated regional juried shows of the year at the Silvermine GuildArts Center, traditionally drawing over 1200 entries, and open to all media and artists throughout New England, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. This year’s juror is Douglas Dreishpoon, chief curator at the Albright-KnoxArt Gallery, Buffalo, New York. Throughout its history Art of the Northeast (AONE), originally called Art of New England, has been a showcase for many emerging artists who have gone on to receive national acclaim. Jurors have included curators and directors of major galleries and museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, MOMA and the Whitney Museum."

So, with cash prizes and pretty good exposure, I hope my work gets in. The show opens May 8, 6-9 pm, awards at 8pm. The previous review of Arcadian Starting Line from last summer's Track Town USA show is here.
