The Eccles Community Art Center http://www.ogden4arts.org/ holds a statewide competition each year for Utah artists. My wife enters a couple of her paintings each year and even won the purchase award last year. This year she talked me into entering a couple woodturnings. I had a hard time deciding what to enter because I don't really see my stuff as art, more like woodworking craft. I entered the burl bowl below and the goblet from this thread http://familywoodworking.org/forums/...ead.php?t=4276
Well I got my notification today that both pieces were accepted. I was really surprised because I've never seen a woodturning in the show before. Then when I looked on their website it says the juror is Stephen “Woody” Shepherd, Assistant Professor of Drawing & Painting, Utah State University. With a nickname of "Woody" I guess that explains it. I won't find out until next week if I got double lucky and won any kind of award.
My wife also got one of her paintings accepted.
