One Out of Three Ain't Bad

IMG_5569x Fair Tomorrow
Finally got over to the Uihlein Peters Gallery today to pick up my art and see which one of my three submissions actually made it into the show Good Things...Small Packages. (I missed the opening because I was out of town last weekend.)

Fair Tomorrow (above) was the lucky contestant! I made it in Michael deMeng's Matchbook Reliquary workshop at Raevn's Nest Art Retreat last October. In fact, it's one of my few assemblage projects that actually got finished on the day instead of languishing for months.

The other two pieces I had submitted were Neglected Memories (below, which DID languish for months after I started it in Michael's Morpheus Box class in Oct.) and Internal Affairs already discussed in a previous blog post. In fact, the main reason I pushed myself to submit to this show was because I needed a deadline to force myself to stop fiddling and finish Neglected Memories!

Oooooh, My!!! Congratulations, Carolyn! This piece is absolutely fabulous! (As are the other two!) What a feather in your cap! Woo-Hoo!!

I see that you remembered to click your red heels together three times to get back home! Welcome back! Hope you had a lot of fun and made a lot of happy, new memories! Hugs! xoxo

How cool, congrats!!

Michele said...

Congratulations! That's so fabulous--I wish I could go to the exhibit.

Will you try to show Internal Affairs elsewhere? I really love that piece!

Thanks, ladies!
@Terri - I had to take the ruby slippers off by the reception because my feet were killing me :D

@Michele - if my friend's Book Arts Gallery does another open theme show, I might submit it since she's geared (no pun intended) towards interactive art, though it's not really a book.

Congratulations Carolyn!!!
I'm so happy for you. The 'Fair Tomorrow' piece is fabulous! Although I loved your other 2 as well. I would definitely submit the other piece to the interactive show.
I'm sure it will get in:)
Glad you're back, Hope your time away was FUN.
I still haven't signed up for classes,
I was waiting to get the schedule for my daughter's college parent's weekend int he fall. I was hoping it wouldn't be the same weekend.
It isn't so I MUST sign up for Raevn's Nest.

That's great, Carolyn! Congratulations! It's a wonderful piece - and I'm sure you'll find the right venue for the other two... Laura
