Arts in Harmony 2013

Sending paintings off to art competitions always feels like a shot in the dark. Artists share so many stories of wonderful paintings being rejected, and less than wonderful paintings being selected for awards. It's like the allure of gambling: maybe my painting this time! 

The process to apply is not standardized. Some applications are by email, some by CD, some with the actual work, and a few hold-outs with slides. Send in the image, the entry form, the fee, and hope for acceptance into the show. Will my work be rejected of accepted? If rejected, well, it must not have been the right piece for that show. If accepted, there is always a flush of happiness that someone appreciated the work. That's how far I am now for the Arts in Harmony 2013 sponsored by the Elk River Area Arts Alliance - ACCEPTED.


The exhibit will run from February 4 to March 28, 2013, and it is always an interesting show.

Congratulations for getting into the AiH show... I don't enter this particular show anymore because it's too hard to get into it. Do you know where I could see the show online?
