Did you enter the 87th San Antonio Art League Exhibition? I did, and my fingers are crossed that I got in! We will know in a couple of days – however, I did get to meet the juror, William Eiland, at a dinner at our house last night.
Sorry, I have no inside track about who was accepted, but I did learn that the juror is absolutely delightful. I think you’ll agree when you see the video, below, in which the charming museum director from Georgia discusses everything from fried chicken to what makes a good submission to a juried art show.
Here are some photos from last night’s very informal, very enjoyable dinner.
I loved Bill Eiland’s advice to artists who enter juried shows:
- Avoid sentimentality
- Avoid cliches
- Be true to your personal vision
Now, back to crossing my fingers that we all were accepted!!
