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 …
AFTER THE RAIN!!!!
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.
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.
