The 25th Annual Tallahassee International Opening Reception

On Friday, August 27, my husband and I drove up to Tallahassee, FL for the opening reception of The 25th Annual Tallahassee International art competition at Florida State University Museum of Fine Arts.  It was our first visit to our state's capitol.  I wish we had planned to stay longer.  Tallahassee is a fabulous city.  The city and university campus would be great places to explore.

The Tallahassee International is an annual, juried competition sponsored by the Florida State University of Fine Arts and juried by a panel of faculty from the College of Visual Arts, Theatre & Dance.  This year close to 400 artists entered the competition, submitting nearly 800 works for consideration.  Fifty-eight works by fifty artists were selected.

I am very happy to say that a piece of my work was juried in.  Here I'm standing with Jean D. Young, The 25th Tallahassee International Coordinator (on right).
