   Join me at the Juried Invitational Exhibition…

I am very excited to exhibit in SoJie 12. SoJie 12 takes its name from the first letters of Solo’s Juried Invitational Exhibition. This month is only the 12th one, ever, and 120 other members of the Solo Exhibition group, besides myself, are represented.

This exhibition is based on a workshop, in which I participated, where member artists translated member photographers’ images to traditional art medium.

Winners of the invitational will be announced on August 31st, when a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place will be awarded in three categories: digital art, photography, and traditional art.

Non members, as well as members, ARE welcome to view all of the work nominated. So I hope that you will click the show banner, above, and follow the link to view my fellow exhibitors. The works are shown “gallery size” and are beautiful, seen together. Each translation follows the originating photograph.

If you do not belong to the group, Solo Exhibition, you cannot participate in commenting; and joining to comment is not encouraged. But you CAN lend support by commenting in my journal, here, about the show.

THIS JOURNAL IS ALSO PART OF A WEB RING. You can also follow other artists involved, by clicking on the WEB RING BADGE below. You don’t need to be a member of Solo Exhibition to show your support, this web ring is especially for non members! Thank you!

    Maria, how sweet these are. You know it was a pleasure to have you in the workshop and watch you grow Maria. You could probably say the same for many of us. But I know you wanted so badly to work with figures. Your flowers are always your strong point; there is a sense of beauty there that you have and relate to, and it shows. But it was your second work, on Rosalie Scanlon’s Lady in Black where you immersed yourself and your audience into a tantalizing impressionistic scene that took the best of Rosalie’s photograph and embellished it. You did that so well and I’m proud of you. Congratulations, Maria on your exhibits in the show!

  • Frannie, thank you for helping me, guiding me and being such a wonderful and inspirational friend. Thank you for being there for me and pushing me in such a positive and wonderful way! :D Thank you for your kind words and encouragement. I thank you from my heart!
