Years ago, in another career path, I entered juried shows quite regularly. Although there was a selection process occurring on my end as well. I looked for shows that were well established, in great venues, with jurors of substance, and where I could see previous participants work to get a feel for the quality. Of course a lot of this activity was generated by the academic necessity of “professional activity”. Never mind that for my former chairperson, showing in local churches and restaurants also filled the bill for some coworkers.
After a long absence from having any presence in Denver, I decided to pop a couple pieces in to be juried by William Biety.
He used to work at the Sandy Carson Gallery on SantaFe, and has a great eye. More importantly, he knows how to curate shows- put interesting work together cohesively. Maybe he’ll have something to say about how the show is hung.
These two little paintings will be appearing at Spark Gallery, 900 Santa Fe, Denver…..from Feb 2 – through Feb 26.
