I came home from work yesterday, and this was waiting for me on the counter. My BSP gave it to me to help celebrate the good news that's came in on Wednesday and Thursday.
On Wednesday, I had a request to exhibit Fractured at the Union Art Gallery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in a show called Throw: Great Innovations in Modern Quilt Design which will begin on September 21, 2012 and run through October 13, 2012.
And on Thursday, I had a request to create a piece for a show entitled "Mermaids and Merwomen in Black Folklore" for the City Gallery at Waterfront Park in Charleston, S.C. to be exhibited from August 28th through October 28th, 2012.
Andddddd, "America Now: Walking While Black" debuts at InSea/USSEA Regional Conference United States Society For Education Through Art in Indianapolis, IN in a show titled "American Spring - A Cause For Justice" this weekend.
I've accepted both invitations and begin work on the mermaid piece as soon as I'm done this post!
In my 2011 Year In Review post, I said that one of my goals for this year was to start exhibiting, which is why my BSP got me that celebratory cupcake. I didn't know it would get off to such a bang - I haven't even applied for entry to anything yet!
I feel like I have a pocket full of starlight.
