August 2011: Juried in for Artist Membership in the North Shore Arts Association

This is a huge accomplishment! The NSAA receives many applicants for Artist Membership but only six of us were accepted. The jurying is a two-step process. Submission of five photographs of your work is the first step; if you pass that, you are invited to bring in the originals. Getting the phone call that I was accepted was very exciting! They requested my piece titled "Holy Mackerel" for the first show in the Spring.

The North Shore Arts Association is on Pirate's Lane in East Gloucester. It has three large galleries and sits on Smith Cove with a beautiful view of the harbor.
