The Taylor Artist's Guild hold's a show every month at 120Art Studio in Taylor, TX. I had been meaning for months to submit a piece to one of their shows. I finally got around to submitting Collision to their June show, "Out of the Blue". I was surprised and super excited when my piece was accepted. I had never been to a show held by TAG, so I wasn't sure what to expect.
I did have to build a frame for my painting. This was a new thing for me. I am skilled in carpentry, but I have never built a floating frame before. I was impressed with how it turned out and how it changed the feel of the painting.
I went to the opening which happens on the Third Thursday of the month. I was accompanied by some former art students. This was quite the experience. They had never been to a "real" art show before, and I got to hang with some of my favorite students.
All in all, the show was great. My piece was certainly different than the others in the show. I like to think it really stood out from the rest because of this. I hope to show more pieces at this gallery...and many others.
