The Butler Institute of American Art
This news deserves it's own post and may be duplicate news from my previous post, but I have reason to blow my horn! Woo Hoo!
"Curbsides" 12x9" Pastel on sanded paper, ©Brenda Boylan
Back in August, "Curbsides" was entered into the 39th Annual Pastel Society of America Juried Exhibit and was accepted! So I sent it out on a visit to New York City for the month long show at the National Arts Club. They (the jurors) liked it so much that it won an award,
but that's not all, there's more! Just yesterday, I received notice that it was invited to hang at the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio. A museum with the likes of Andy Warhol and Georgia O'Keefe. So this little guy will be getting more mileage than all my trips out to Sauvie Island. Pretty nice little feather to put in my cap i guess, heh?
There are times when you wonder if all that hard work at the easel makes any difference. Well, let me be the first to tell you that it really does. :)
