32nd Bradley International Print and Drawing Exhibition

Two of my watercolors were selected for the 32nd Bradley International Print and Drawing Exhibition, at the Bradley University in Peoria, IL! It is the second-longest-running juried print and drawing competition in the country. From about 1 700 works submitted by 600 national and international artists, my two pieces were not only among the 126 selected, but one of them got among the 38 works juror Lynwood Kreneck chose for the preview show, that starts a month earlier.

Zarko and I went to the opening (Peoria is about two and a half hours drive from Naperville, where we live); after the opening Lynwood Kreneck gave a talk, and I got a chance to meet him.

He's a Texan! He got both his BA and MFA from the University of Texas at Austin, and has been teaching printmaking at Texas Tech University for nearly forty years!

I even started missing Austin a little when he mentioned how the sky in Texas inspired him a lot...
I must admit - Texas has the most beautiful big blue skies I've seen!

Here are the two selected pieces "Small worlds (in sepia/cerulean) no. 1" and "Maroon nebula" and some photos from the opening.
