Juried in to Rockport!!! November 2018

I'm pleased to announce that I was juried in to the Rockport Art Association this week. They had 57 painters apply for membership and 6 got in. This was my second try. Last year after I didn't get in, I went to the jury critique, and their advice: be consistent with subject matter. Their exact words: if you do boats with reflections, then submit five pieces of boats with reflections. So I did. And got in. OK!!!

At any rate it's a huge honor to be admitted. They held a New Members Reception and it was very nicely done and well attended. People ask: what do you get once you're a member? First off you get to show your work at their various exhibits. RAAM is on Main Street in Rockport and they get a ton of foot traffic. I think I'll have a good chance of actually selling work there. It's also a prestigious organization. Anything that can help me get recognition is good. ,

Two of my paintings, "Gloucester Blue" and "Rusty Gold" will be in this exhibit through November 25th. The RAAM does close for the winter months. But I'm looking forward to being involved there next year.
