I had a great first art show this weekend. It was a really fun event, although temperatures were 95+ for three days. I ended up getting third in the show and selling about $500 of art.
Kristin Shauck from Astoria was the judge. I really enjoyed talking with her and listening to her talk about the importance of art. I was surprised to get an award. There were many really talented artists. I was really a huge surprise when I was awarded 3rd overall. Kristin really seemed to like three dimensional art that you could feel.
I really enjoyed the sense of community. It felt like all the artists were in it together. They were super welcoming to me as a first timer. I felt like I found my tribe.
