After the Rain is officially a Work of Art!

Last year, I was very fortunate in that one of my artworks, my infrared photo Infrared Horizon 787 was accepted into the Albany Institute of History and Art’s “Work of Art” show – and the piece eventually sold at that show.

So I tried again this year.  I was allowed two submissions, so I chose one picture that’s been garnering more ribbons than a potluck sewing circle, After the Rain, and as an alternate choice, I submitted my long exposure shot American Dreamtime: Solarcan 368.

So here’s the thing.  I have to enter what I think will be acceptable artworks for such an event.  Something stark, something abstract – and hopefully whatever makes the walls at the Albany Institute of History and Art will be a successful addition to the show.

And yesterday … I received the big news.

One of my artworks made the cut.  For the second consecutive year, I will be able to show a Chuck Miller artwork at the Albany Institute of History and Art’s “Work of Art” show.

That artwork is …


Yes folks, my macro shot of the last drops of water on a dandelion’s petals will join several other fantastic artworks by several other fantastic Capital Region artists.

This is exciting.  Super-exciting.

Man, this picture keeps reaping benefit after benefit after benefit.  Four silks, three of them blue, a People’s Choice vote award … and now its first art gallery showing.

Trust me.  This is fun.  Seriously fun.

In case you can’t see it, I’m doing a big fat happy dance right now.

See? 😀

The Albany Institute of History and Art’s “Work of Art” show takes place on Wednesday, November 6, 2019.  You definitely need to see this.

I know I’ll be there to see it.
