CONGRATULATIONS!! The work indicated on your notification form has been selected by our Juror, Dr. Edmund Pillsbury, for CPSA's 10th International Juried Exhibition. There were over 684 slides submitted. From this, 120 pieces were selected.

I'm excited to be accepted since I know the quality of the work submitted each year. It's incredible.

Now all I need to do is find a way to afford to get to TX for the opening and the convention...I sure would like to take that class being given.

Award winners won't be known till the end of June...but honestly? I'm just thrilled to be accepted.

Here's a link to the organization: http://www.cpsa.org They show the past winners on their site.

last year our own WC member Gorilla (Sydney Smart-Baisden) won an award...her work is awesome!

Arlene, I've been wondering if you made it to Ft Worth. I thought of you that weekend. Unfortunately, I never made it to the exhibit {my life story of late}. Just checked out your link in the hopes to see you on the winners list. What were those judges thinking? You'll always winner of excellence and merit with us WCers.
