Minnesota State Fair Fine Art Show - Rejected!
So Today I went and picked up my image from the art show, for some reason or another it didn't get accepted by the judge, which happens. This is why shows have judges, galleries have curators, and why we like some places over others - not because of quality issues, but because we all have different eyes and look for and at different things.
I didn't decide to do the Hopkins show this year, which is a place for the State Fair rejections, since I don't agree with the whole "anything goes that didn't get accepted here" idea, or at least I don't think my work would fit well into that setting. I'm also younger and a bit idealistic, so this view may change in a few years.
