My self-addressed, stamped envelope from the Southern California Open Regional Art Exhibit. Oh. It was very thin. Was that a bad sign? I felt a CD, possibly the one I’d submitted with digital photos of two pieces.
When I got home, I sat at my desk, put the envelope down and turned on my computer. Then I carefully tore open the envelope. Actually, I shredded it. Inside the envelope was a Notification Claim Card, stapled to some other small documents, and a letter.
Wait. There was an X next to “Selected” on the claim card, under Entry A, No Use Crying. It looked like one of my entries had been accepted! My dad was online so I sent him a chat.
me: OMGOMG!!! One of my pieces has been selected for The Southern California Open Regional Exhibit!
Wait. I looked closer. There was another X under Entry B, My Creative Mojo: A Trio of Autobiographic Sculptures on Creativity. Yes! The type was tiny, but there it was.
BOTH pieces had been accepted! Woo-hooo! By this time, I was grinning from ear to ear, and doing a little jig. O Happy Day!
The exhibit runs Wednesday, January 6th to Saturday, January 30th, 2010, and the opening reception is Saturday, January 10th from 2-5 pm. I’d love to see you there!
