Rockville Art League Juried Members Show, Varied Media

Two of my paintings were selected for the Rockville Art Leagues Juried Members Show, Varied Media.  I was excited for my pieces to be chosen as these are two of my first three oil paintings I've done since returning to oils recently.  The show was juried by renowned art critique, Lenny Campello.  It is hanging at the Glenview Mansion Art Gallery and will run from April 29 - May 29, 2012.  It includes 110 pieces of wonderful art, both two dimensional and three dimensional work.  There was a great turnout for the opening reception last Sunday.  At the artists walk through, the juror, Lenny Campello spoke to the artists, explaining what he looks for when selecting the art for the show.  First he looks for presentation of the work.  Is the frame in good shape?  Is the glass scratched?  Are the mats acid free?  He will not select a piece that is not presented well.  Then he looks for color, composition and technique.  It was informative to hear about the jurying process from the juror's perspective.  If you live in the area, please stop by to see the show.  The Glenview Mansion and the surrounding grounds are just beautiful!  As is the show...  Below are my two oil paintings that are hanging in the show.  You can click on the image to enlarge it.
