Every year in January I set some goals for What a Great Hat. One of this year’s is to apply to more gallery-style art shows. I applied to have my work displayed at the Dairy Barn Art Center in Athens, Ohio for “Art We Use,” a national exhibition of objects both everyday and special. I’m so excited that my work has been accepted to be in the exhibit!
The Dairy Barn jury received submissions from 131 artists from 36 states and three countries; over 330 pieces and 600 images to consider. The jurors selected 69 artists for the exhibition with a total of 128 works.
Photos of the three pieces I submitted are below. The first piece, “Checks and Balances” will be in the show as well as the second photo, “Not So Vanilla Swirl,” which also received an honorable mention! I hope to visit the exhibition and will post photos when possible. Which of the three is your favorite?
The exhibition opens June 20 and runs through September 7. For more information on the Dairy Barn Arts Center, click here.
