Last night I stayed up until 3AM planning my fall exhibition and juried show schedule.
I hate outdoor festivals – but unfortunately there is an opportunity for lots of money and gallery contacts to be made. My spring schedule was proof of that!
Anyway. There is one that has been a thorn in my side for years: Kentuck in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. I have probably applied 5-6 times. I finally gave up a few years ago – but my friend Gina can seem to get in, so I think I am ready to try again. I just wonder about the jury process. See, I went to school there and I felt I burned a lot of bridges with some of my Art Professors when I left. Some of those people are on the board of Kentuck. So I have a sneaking suspicion that I am possibly being blackballed – but I hate to speculate. Anyway, I am going to suck it up and give them my money, yet another year.
