I won 3rd place at the Juried Member Exhibition at the Pyramid Atlantic. My original blog post about it can be found here. 250+ pieces were entered so it was a huge honor. I can't wait to take the beautiful ribbon made by Elle Friedberg, and that sweet, sweet prize money (which God knows I need after paying for framing; by the way both of my pieces are for sale).
It was unexpected and nice. I got waitlisted at all of the conventions I applied to this year, so this was a much needed boost. "Two steps forward, one step back," seems to apply to both my life and career.
