LK155 Posted March 5 Author Share Posted March 5 Another chapter in this story..... Yesterday we attended the grand opening and awards ceremony for the exhibit. I suppose 'grand' is a bit of an exaggeration since the gallery is quite small. But it was absolutely jammed with people. Like crowded enough so that trying to push your way through the people to see the artwork was a challenge. The art was primarily paintings, with a few mixed media works thrown in. And four photographs. A total of 48 pieces. So speeches were given (blah, blah, blah, clap clap), and the awards were presented, third place, second place, and first place. I had absolutely zero expectations here, and I was absolutely correct. Then they started naming the honourable mentions. First one up, my Blue Guitar photo. Holy crap, what an amazing surprise. Good thing I wore a decent shirt. Fortunately I didn't have to give a speech, just stand around and look humble. One guy (an experienced photographer, in fact) asked me what kind of acrylic surface I had applied to make the guitar look 'all wavy'. None, I told him, that's just the wood. Don't think he believed me. Oh, he says, then that must be a custom-made guitar, right? I told him no, is was not. Don't think he believed me on that either. 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
