Gallery Submissions!

Yesterday I went on my annual trip to Comfest and stopped at a booth to buy some artwork. I asked the woman who I gave the money to if she was the artist. She confirmed that she was then we started talking. I told her that I was also a mixed media artist and wanted to start selling some of my stuff, but didn’t know how. She said she showed her work through a local gallery here in town and that I should go talk to the owner who was 2 booths down! So I did and he said the gallery was accepting open submissions for the first part of July, that I should check out the submission guidelines online and send in an application. 

When I got home, I looked up the submission guidelines on their website and I am really excited because there is no jury and you are pretty much guaranteed at least one piece getting into an open show! So I submitted pictures of 5 different pieces and now I am waiting to hear which ones they want me to enter. (Cross your fingers it will be all of them!)

Here are the pieces I submitted…. The very last one I started and finished today and I had a lot of fun making it because I used my sewing machine to “sew” the pieces of paper together and add the lace and buttons…
