I am happy to say that I have some work accepted into juried shows this fall.
An artist-friend of mine, Christy, had some wise words about acceptance. She said that in many ways, an art juror is like a casting director. He/she picks pieces that they have in mind for a show, the same way a casting director would cast a movie.  Sometimes an artist is right for the part, and sometimes not. They might be looking for a tall blonde, and you happen to be a short red head! (You get the idea) 

I will also be exhibiting some work at Ann Arbor Women Artist Venues
In October and November at Sweetwaters located at 124 Washington Street in Downtown Ann Arbor , and in December and January at Joe and Rosies located at 8074 Main Street in Dexter.

Congratulations! Those are wonderful pieces! I love the Small Works for its vibrancy and the composition. I also like the advice about how jurors choose artwork. I'll try to remember that!

Thanks Katherine. I have very mixed feelings about juried shows. It can be crushing to be rejected, but one has to keep on keeping on! Persistence pays off.
