Art of the State

This is what I've been working on lately.

This is the 41st year that the PA State Museum has conducted this juried art show of the state's established and emerging artists. This year there was a record number of entries with just over 2400. Out of those only 160 pieces were chosen to particiate in the exhibit. Once the exhibit is installed, the juding of the pieces will begin. Independent judges will review the pieces giving prizes out to the best examples in each category.

My father had a painting hung in the State Museum and I suspect it was part of this very exhibit. Over the weekend I helped with the intake of the various pieces of art. I also hope to assist the curator this weekend in hanging/arranging the pieces within the gallery space.

June 28 is the reception and opening to the public of the exhibit. Everyone is invited!!

Needless to say, I could pee my pants I'm so excited to be doing this. This is what I want to do when I grow up!
