We just found out last Friday that "Lavender Lace" has been accepted into the extremely prestigious juried exhibition Salon International 2008!
The competition to get in is very steep. Paintings are submitted from all over the world and the quality of the entries is consistently excellent. Charles' painting "Still Life - India" was accepted into this exhibition last year and even won an honorable mention. I just know that I'll be on pins and needles until the opening reception in April.
We have just over six weeks to give "Lavender" her final varnishing and get her gussied up with a nice new frame...
Well, enough of my gushing. Here's a more official sounding promotional blurb for the show:
A juried exhibition of approximately 300 oil paintings, Salon International's goal is to recognize, exhibit, encourage, and promote artistic excellence worldwide. This year's judge is the acclaimed scenic western landscape artist George Hallmark. The exhibit is hosted by Greenhouse Gallery of Fine Art in San Antonio, Texas. It opens with an awards banquet on Friday, April 11 and hangs through May 2, 2008.
The gallery also features the entire show online during that time frame, so be sure to check it out.
