Last week I heard about a juried photography exhibition taking place in October. Submissions were due today. I've never taken part in a juried show before, and I wasn't going to enter at first. There was a $20 entry fee for 2 pieces, and I wasn't confident enough to try. But my family convinced me, so I dropped off my pieces tonight. Below are the raw photos -- they look a little better framed and matted. I'll find out by Friday if they have been accepted, and then next Thursday the show opens. So that means I have 3 calligraphy pieces at the local library in an open show and these two potentially at another show. Wow -- I feel like a real artist!
