Well I’m excited to say that one of my outreach efforts for a previous week’s business challenge was successful! Back in February, I started looking around at galleries and shops that featured local artist, and for some juried shows to enter. So I stumbled across the City of Bowie’s page, and found an upcoming exhibit which would be great for the type nature photography I do. The exhibit is Flora and Fauna, and features work centering around the theme of nature, plants, and wildlife. Although I was hesitant and nervous, since this is the first show that I’m entering work in that is not in collaboration with school, I entered the maximum number of photographs (three) hoping that I would at least get one in. To my surprise, all three were accepted! 🙂 So today I dropped off my work, and help set up the gallery/display spaces, also another exciting first. I have to say, it was also a great confidence boost when the ladies coordinating the show strongly encouraged me to up the prices of my work, since they said I was grossly under priced, and would be surprised if the pieces weren’t sold. So here they are, and if you’re in the area, stop by and check them out. They show will be open from now until mid June, so you have plenty of time to see my work, and all the other great work there as well!
