Taking risks is always scary and sometimes rewarding. I have had a rewarding experience that I wanted to post on my blog. I have often visited my local art centre and appreciated the annual juried art shows in the gallery. I always have wondered aloud why there are no fiber arts to be seen in these shows.
Why is that?
So this year when the call for entry was announced for the Juried Art Show, I submitted my quilt called "The Internal Sun". I'll tell you, it sure was scary walking in the registration room full of sketches, paintings, portraits, landscapes and sculptures! But I did it anyway and was delighted when they called 3 days later to say that my piece was accepted into the show! I couldn't attend the show opening because it was my daughter's graduation the same night and after all, one can't do too many scary things all at once without getting too many silver hairs! But I have since gone to visit my quilt hanging in the show and was also happy to see that there was one other brave fiber artist who has a piece hanging in the show!
