I am quite pleased, proud and delighted to say that, as all of us who consistently try to do work that will 'wow' the jury with hopes of good news at this particular time of the year, I received the 'BIG envelope' today from the Woodson Art Museum indicating that my work, The Horse Whisperer, made it through the jury this year and will be included in this year's edition of Birds in Art, the museum's internationally recognized flagship, annual exhibition. If memory serves, this will be my 18th year of making it through the jury process. This year, the museum received 884 submissions from almost 550 artists from all across the globe. A truly tough process to make it through. The final tally this time around, 112 juried pieces.


I am honored once again, that my work drew enough attention from the three person jury, to have made the final cut. I look forward, now, to hearing from many of my artist friends in hopes of hearing additional good news on their behalf.


September in north central Wisconsin, could there be any place finer?

Congratulations! The judges could not pass by your beautiful work though. I am busy at the moment but cannot wait to go back to graphite studies, this is due to seeing your work. You are an inspiration to a lot of artists. Lesley

Hi Terry,
Not only is Horse Whisperer a brilliantly executed piece, but clever as well. Simply marvelous.

Congratulations, Terry -- but like I said before, I don't expect you'll be dealing with many more BIA juries.

Hi, to the last commenter .... each artist can submit up to two works for jury for Birds in Art, one or neither of which might make it through the jury and into the final exhibition.
