Crested Butte Plein Air Open Juried Show 2015



I found a couple of photos of my first juried show--thanks to Oh Be Joyful Gallery in Crested Butte! I actually had 5 paintings juried in but the top photo shows only three of the five. A good friend of mine made the frames; he is an artist and custom frame maker.

I did not understand the rules well before entering the show. One could paint for several weeks before the judging as long as the canvas was stamped by the gallery.  I showed up 2 days before the jurying, got my canvases stamped and painted 6 scenes in a day and one half.  I took the paintings into the gallery wet! They juried on the spot. I was so fortunate to have met this wonderful gallery!
