I’m totally stoked!

My image THE RUSTY NAIL has been selected for the prestigious 2015 ArtFields art competition!

Arriving on New Years day the acceptance letter read:

Dear Artist, Congratulations! Your submission to ArtFields® received the combined rating to move forward and compete for $100,000 in cash prizes. The submission process by a panel of visual arts professionals  was extremely competitive.  ArtFields will be a diverse competition, exhibiting approximately 400 works from across the Southeast. The accepted artwork represents a wide range in subject matter, medium, and emerging to established artists. We are enthusiastic about exhibiting your artwork in Lake City, SC during ArtFields from April 24-May 2, 2015.

Limited to one submission, I chose a piece from a transfer film process I started working with this year.

The digital image was taken at The Rusty Nail – a downtown bar in Wilmington, NC where locals gather to listen to great blues & jazz musicians and shoot pool – printed on a piece of 11×13 film substrate then transferred to art paper. The imperfections you see are part of the transfer process.  I must say that the original looks 100% better than the photograph of the original you see here.

Currently this image is on exhibit until 2/12/15 at Cameron Art Museum – State of the Art/Art of the State, Wilmington, NC.

What a great start to the New Year!  Can you see me smiling ear to ear?
