Both Works Accepted in this year's UNCLAD 2011!

Woo hoo!!  I'm doing the happy dance today.  I just received my acceptance email that my two works I submitted for the UNCLAD 2011 exhibit, The Wood Nymph and Sharing Secrets have been juried in the show!!

UNCLAD 2011 is the annual art show dedicated to celebrating the nude figure in art.  This year is the 10th anniversary!  This popular juried show in Fine Art Nudes will feature a broad range of styles and approaches in all mediums.  Last year's show featured 108 artists from all across North America.

I'll have more information on Gallery by the Bay in Stanwood, WA and UNCLAD 2011 as it gets closer to the show.  It will be featured as an online show as well as in the gallery.  There will also be an audio tour of the work.  I will want to take advantage of making an audio to talk about my work and how it can be viewed under magnification to see all the detail and about the process of working on film.  As I stated before, this is a new show for me and a stretch since I don't usually include the figure in my work.  I'm glad that I did because I have continued with the wood nymph as a subject and am currently working on her in miniature!  I'll be posting that one as soon as she's finished.  So far, she's looking good!

Thanks for taking time to read about my work.  Hope all of you are staying safe, warm and dry where ever you live.

No surprise to me, Barbara. Your pieces had the unclad figure and offers a uniqueness that they are probably not used to seeing. The nymphs were amazing and whimsical and mysterious, not to mention beautiful.

I can't recall that any of your works haven't been accepted for an exhibition and it would be a foolish judge to reject one - Congratulaions Barbara and I do wish you every success in the exhibitions!!! :)

Congratulations Barbara! Your ethereal depictions of nature are just perfect for the nymph and fantasy world pieces. Love them!!

Wendy Mould said...

WOW!! Good for you Barbara, that is really great. Both the pictures are very well done so I am not surprised they were picked.

Thanks Karen, Deb and Wendy. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a good reception of them. Working on a miniature of the wood nymph character now. Coming along but at a snail's pace!
