UPDATE: Great evening last night. Attended the 36th Annual Indiana Heritage Exhibition in Nashville, Indiana. As always it was an impressive show with some of the best classical trained talent Indiana has to offer. I'm always humbled when I get the postcard letting me know I'm included in this year's juried exhibition.
The collection was primarily oil but also included 6 watercolors, 10 pastels, 6 acylics, a charcoal, a pencil, a graphite and a blockprint. There were 121 pieces in in total.
Marilee and I arrived when the doors opened. I knew from the postcard all three watercolors made it in and one was a winner. I was overwhelmed to see my painting 'Miner's Falls' won third place -- $2000 prize. In addition, by the end of the evening 'A Quiet Spring Flowage' was sold. It was a great day – WooHoo. http://www.indianaheritagearts.org/indiana/2014show.html
JUNE 5TH: All three of my watercolors have been accepted into the IHA 36th Annual Exhibition & Sale in Nashville, IN. Got the postcard today and it's stamped IHA Winner–WOO-HOO! This is my 10th year of being included in this prestiges show. This is a great show – one of my favorites because it continues to promote the Brown County Art Colony philosophy. A must see. It will not disappoint. www.indianaheritagearts.org
