Outdoor and Indoor Art Shows
A few days ago, I set up my tent for a juried outdoor art show, Arts in the Park! 2015. Everyone involved with the show had been checking on the weather - which is important for an outdoor show! The day dawned - bright and sunny - and at 7:30, I joined other artists in setting up my tent at the beautiful Johansen Park. The show started at 10 am with lots of visitors - and they kept coming until about 2 PM, when the rain started! The rain started slowly, but then we all received the news that there were bad storms on the way. So, we were told that it would be a good idea to start packing up. A lot of artists packed up in a hurry and left. It seems to take me longer than most to organize my photographs, protect them from the weather, and then pack them up. So we zipped all the sides of the tent closed, and proceeded to wait out the storm. We were fortunate that we were not blown away or really flooded! During lulls in the storms, we packed up. As we drove away, we noticed how wet and soggy the park had become. My spot at the corner had been a great one - it was higher than most of the spots in the park.
One of the groups I belong to is the Jacksonville Coalition for the Visual Arts. Several times a year there will be a juried show and members may submit two or three pieces of their work to be juried. Recently, I submitted two of my photographs for their juried Spring show. I was happy to find out that both of my photos were accepted - and even better, this one, Lavender Cart, won a second place award! This show is continuing until May 7. It is being held at Egret Hall at Cypress Village, near the Mayo Clinic.
