I have to tell you, there is no guarantee the painting "Window" will be accepted in this year's AVA Gallery Summer Show. I have had a painting in this exhibit for the last 10 years, with one exception. I visited the exhibit on the year of my exclusion and found the exhibited work to be abstract and cool; my work did not fit into the juror's concept for that summer's exhibition. This year's juror is Katherine Hart, Interim Director of the Hood Museum of Art and Dartmouth College's Barbara C. and Harvey P. Hood 1918 Curator of Academic Programming. I do not know her. Notification cards will be mailed on June 20, I will receive the card on June 21, and I will report to you the results in my blog post of June 22. I will also summit the first drawing from 06/08/2011.
Yesterday I fixed up minor problematic details of "Window." Today I will spray "retouch varnish" on the spots which have lost their gloss because the paint has dried (this is particularly noticeable with dark paint, mostly blacks, which dry quickly). Yesterday I also made one drawing, posted below. Tomorrow I will post the definitive photo reproduction of the finished "Window."
