This is a piece I made for a juried show. Found out today that it has been accepted! I can’t wait for First Friday. It should be a great show.
First Friday at the 31st Annual 64th Parallel Exibition
The guest juror this year was Jovencio de la Paz. He gave a very interesting lecture Monday night, after a long day in the Bear Gallery. Fairbanks area artist submitted over 200 entries. I think we wowed him Fairbanks! I don’t know how he narrowed it down to 64 pieces for the show. I am surprised and honored to have two of my Bead Art pieces chosen for the show.
Here are some of the accepted art works from the show. We had a fun evening seeing great friends, other artists and supporters of the arts! Thank you Fairbanks Arts Association .
Shipwreck Beads had a great sale. This means I am almost ready for winter beading. I know I will buy more beads before our long Alaskan winter is over but, this is a good start.
The 64th Parallel Exhibition is this month. It is going to be juried by Jovencio de la Paz. I heard that there are over 200 entries this year. He must chose only 64 for the show! I have four entries this year, hope to find out that at least one has made it in sometime tomorrow. I will get pictures of my entries soon.
What a great evening. We attended the Interior Artisans 30th Annual Juried Show at the Bear Gallery tonight. The guest juror was Don Decker, google him. He has a very impressive art style.
I had four pieces entered and accepted! Thrills, right? It got better. I had 2 pieces get Honorable Mention Awards. I was told that I was the only artist that had all of their entries accepted. There were 113 entries, 77 were accepted.
Now for the real thrill; a very dear friend attended the show and brought me a gift. She is a very talented young artist and I love her style. Thank you Jen .
My piece made it into the juried show. I was so glad to be included. This was a fun piece to do, adding the pearls and porcupine quills made it more my style! I have a few more ideas using salmon skin and beads… Here are a few pictures I took on a slow day at the gallery, still very hard to include everything.
This is a new piece. It is made of salmon skin, fox fur and porcupine quills. Trimmed with freshwater pearls and seed beads. I submitted it for entry into “Patterns of Influence” a juried art show. I found out today that it has been accepted ! I will have to wait until Friday evening to find out how or if it placed.
