Super Girl; mixed media on panel; 60" x 60"
Back in January, I wrote about the crazy process of making this painting. I'm happy to share that it's been selected for the National Juried Exhibition at the Oxford Art Alliance in Oxford, PA this month. I don't make it a habit to enter many juried shows anymore, but when I really respect the juror, I'll consider it. Entering a show is kind of like a conversation, you're asking the juror, "what do you think of this?" The answer isn't always that easy to discern, because the juror has to consider many things in her selection process. She has to curate the whole exhibition, and there can be a number of reasons why a painting is or is not selected. I've had my share of rejections and try not to take that stuff too much to heart. Jennifer Samet is the juror of this show. She is a New York-based art historian, curator, and writer of monthly interviews called, "Beer With a Painter" on Hyperallergic. This is someone whose opinion I do respect. Plus, this is a six foot painting, and delivery was just a walk across the street :)
Come by for the opening if you're in this neck of the woods...
