Next spring, I have an opportunity to exhibit my pastels at a nearby library. I met with one of the volunteers who selects exhibiting artists. The work I showed her was from my Journey through Open Spaces exhibit (August–September 2017). I’ll continue with the theme of landscapes but realized it would be nice to include new work. I am finishing one pastel and have ideas for two more. Since this exhibit will not happen until late March/early April of 2019, I have time to work on a number of pieces.
In addition to this exhibit, I submitted work to be considered for two other exhibits. One exhibition was originally scheduled for June 2018, which I had submitted a few pastels back in March. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the exhibit was rescheduled to late summer/early fall. I’m thinking by September I should hear if any of my pastels were selected for this exhibit. The second opportunity is with another library. The committee is reviewing all submissions and will contact approved artists within the next few weeks. They are selecting artists for their October 2018–October 2019 art exhibition schedule.
