I cannot even believe I am writing these words… after my solo show in January, I made a point to search for exhibitions that fit the content of my work. After all, everything is framed and ready to be displayed. I have been following the Bedford Gallery for the past years since The Jealous Curator (one of my favorite art blogs!) curated a show there last year. I split my work into groups, and began to apply to several galleries.
A couple weeks ago I got the email from the Bedford Gallery accepting one of my photographs into their Botanica: All Things Plant Life exhibition!! I was floored. The Bedford Gallery is located outside of Oakland, California — in the San Francisco Bay Area — 3,000 miles away. I don’t think I could’ve submitted to a place in the US that’s further away. Ha!!!
I am BEYOND excited to have my work in a gallery on the west coast. And!!! The opening is in July — and I’m not teaching — so, I’m packing my bags and going to CALIFORNIA!!!
