Today I spent the afternoon preparing images of my paintings for entry into art shows this summer. It’s a lot of work to properly photograph (or scan) your images in a high quality format. Then you must edit your images to the size and format (ppi) that the exhibitor (or the website that handles the entry) wants. Luckily, that’s one of the services I provide, so I know what I’m doing!
I entered 3 shows this afternoon:
Gone to the Dogs 7 – Which is put on by Niza Knoll Gallery at 915 Santa Fe Drive, Denver. I entered my “Portland Pooches” painting and my “Sunny Day Lunch” painting. The show runs from August 4th through September 16th. I will hear back from them by next week if I made it in.
Louisville Art Association National Fine Art & Photography Show & Sale – 801 Grant Ave, Louisville, CO. www.louisvilleart.org
I entered my “I’m Feeling Koi,” “Lonely Fox,” and “Hunter’s Lunch.” The show runs from September 1st through September 10th.
Boulder County Fair – Boulder County Fairgrounds at 9595 Nelson Rd., Longmont, CO. This is not a “juried” show, meaning everyone who enters, gets in! The fair runs from July 29th through August 7th. I entered my “Piggy Toes,” “Blue Ribbon Rooster,” and “Garden Bunny.” All artwork is for sale by contacting the artist directly. Free Admission! http://www.bouldercountyfair.org/
