"Dissolve" Chosen For The Art Of Photography Show

I rarely enter my photographs in photography contests or juried shows.  However, I pay attention to what comes into my life and what people say to me.  If someone suggests something to me, I figure I need to do it to see what happens.  That was the case here.  I took a portrait photography class a few months ago and the instructor suggested I enter something in the "Art of Photography" show.  I wasn't going to at first but then I decided to do it since it was suggested to me.

I was thrilled to hear the news that the one photo I entered was chosen for the show.

My image "dissolve" was selected by judge Anne Lyden (Associate Curator at the J.Paul Getty Museum) for inclusion in the 2011 Art of Photography Show at the Lyceum Theatre Gallery in San Diego.  My photograph was chosen from 15,444 entries from 72 countries.  In all, there will be 109 pieces shown.  To see a list of all participating photographers and the country they are from, click HERE.

The opening reception is August 13th and the show runs until October 16th, 2011.

I like the way you think.

I recently entered my first juried show because the show itself contacted me (and when I was slow on the uptake) my neighbor, the woman who invited me to my first exhibition ever, sent the show info to me too.

Listening is key.

This shot is fantastic. I'm not the least bit surprised that it was chosen.

Congrats ~:)
