I finally made it to the
1st Annual CTCC Juried Art Exhibit.
The show is at the
Cranberry Township Municipal Center
and runs from July 12 - August 10.
The show was funded by the
Cranberry Township Community Chest and the art was
provided by members of the
Associated Artist of Butler County.
My photo "$crap" was displayed in a corner.
But if I'm going to be in a corner I couldn't ask for better company.
The portrait of the young man beside my photo was done by
Maria Kovalenko Leysens. Maria's portrait of her son
was done in pastels, she also had two watercolor paintings in the show.
I did not win any award nor sold my piece but I am honored to have
been included in the show. The artist in this particular show were of the
highest caliber. ( I'm lucky I got in folks)
For this show painters swept the awards.
The following photos were taken with my
cell phone camera, not the best quality.
