I am disappointed (*@#%!!) that none of my four entries to the current exhibit at Northwind Arts Center were accepted. I will probably never know why, and it is a pity that none appealed to the jurors, who run a very nice art gallery here in town: the Simon Mace Gallery. I am sorry/disappointed that they did not like my work.
I entered three new assembly/sculptural pieces. These, while not exactly momentous, please me. I though/still think they have merit. But maybe they are a little to “crafty”, and read more as assemblage than sculpture, although I make most of my “parts” myself. I don’t think the Simon Mace Gallery every shows assemblage work, nor do they tend toward small works in general.
My other piece was again “pieced”, with collage elements, although all original work, not found imagery. It is a small work, that is best enjoyed close up. But I love it, and am especially disappointed that it was rejected. Aaargh!
It is hard to dismiss the disappointment, but … thank goodness it is: 1) sunny today, 2) am just back from a wonderful 3 day camping trip, and 3) I just got a little present in mail. So I can just get over this silly disappointment and move on (I hope)!
