I mentioned in May 2016 that some of my car details photos had been accepted for exhibit at Sweetwaters Cafe on Liberty in Ann Arbor, and it actually happened. The organizer, landscape artist Ruth Krzyzowski, of the Ann Arbor Women Artists, was super helpful in making the process run smoothly. Among other things, AAWA handles art exhibits at many local coffeehouses and other locations, so glad I’m a member, feel much more part of the local art community.
After we got the photos up I remarked to Jon that they looked like the work of a “real” photographer, and of course he reminded me that I AM a real photographer.
… so pleased with how they looked. No sales, but felt good to have them out and being enjoyed by others, and it does make me feel like a real photographer :)
Thanks again to the Ann Arbor Women Artists group for their support of local artists – and yes, men can be members too.
October had lots of excitement, including the publication of the travel stock photos article in Digital Photography School, now with over 900 shares! Also had the two photos I submitted accepted at the Ann Arbor Women Artists Fall 2015 Juried Show at our local district library. I was told at the opening reception that there were 175 submissions and 75 accepted, so I’m pretty pleased getting accepted the first time.
I submitted some of the photos from the one day of large enough England photos so the Shutterstock site is up to 1366 images, some progress:
Logos still the overwhelming winners in popularity, though you can see some of the Holland, MI shots among the top, and the flu shot and time change reminders made an appearance:
As for what is coming up, yesterday I submitted some of the Iceland photos to our College’s literary magazine, so fingers crossed on that one!
So I’d been thinking about it and finally did it this month. I became a member of the Ann Arbor Women Artists group. I had seen their name around many of the coffeehouses in town that have art exhibits and had set it as a goal this summer to become a member. Looks like in addition to the exhibits they have a number of talks, workshops, etc. that should be useful. Not quite sure how involved I’ll be able to be with the school year starting, but I am glad to at least be a part of the group and a bigger artistic community. Maybe I can see about exhibiting those framed car photos…
