Beginning and End, taken in a fortezza (fortress!) in Orvieto, Italy, last summer.
This morning I received an acceptance e-mail for an art exhibit I entered last month! It's at Georgia State College and University, in Milledgeville, Georgia, and is called Place Collaborative. I said a few months ago when I made it my summer mission to enter my work into a lot of exhibits and publications that if I made it into one, it would all be worth it.
Place Collaborative, a Georgia College & State University student led initiative, invites entries for an exhibition, August 13 - 27, 2009, examining the relationship between location and its inhabitants. This exhibition seeks to advance dialogue about reconnecting with the environment through visual art that emphasizes humanity's relationship to place. Artists whose works convey the process of reestablishing a sense of place through environmental restoration are strongly encouraged.
All entries will be considered by a panel of student jurors under the advisement of the Museum Curator. Place is in collaboration with environmental artist Mara Scrupe whose residency ignited this project.
