Some months ago I submitted some pictures for an upcoming photo exhibit called 600 sq mi: Photos from Houston. It’s a juried show, meaning that you pay the entry fee and a panel of judges determine if your work is worthy enough to be included or not.

For some odd reason I had my dates confused and thought that the notifications were going out on June 13th instead of July 13th. When I failed to receive any communication from the organizers of the event in June I figured I must not have made the grade and was, quite frankly, dissapointed. I cursed the organizers of the event quietly under my breath and swore a terrible revenge before moving on with the day to day obligations of my life.

Imagine my surprise when, as I was checking my e-mail one last time in Seattle before my flight home the other day, I discovered a notification im my inbox that said “Congratulations! Your work has been selected for “600 sq mi”

Well color me pickled tink and consider the oath of retribution retracted, null and void.

The 600 sq mi exhibition will run at MSquared Gallery in the Heights from Sept. 5 to Oct. 7, 2007, with an opening reception Saturday, Sept. 8.

If you want to know which of my photographs was selected you’ll have to come to the show…

Now comes the process of getting the print made of the piece that was selected and then getting it framed and delivered to the gallery.

Yay me!

      Congratulations. Unfortunately I’ll not be in Houston til the end of October/first of November for Quilt Festival, so I’ll miss your show. Perhaps you’ll put the picture up here?

      I’m one of the organizers, although NOT a juror, so I thank you for retracting your curse. 🙂

      Congrats! To exclude your work is to make the event pointless.

      I wonder if there was a typo somewhere on their information, because I thought it was June 13 too. You were not alone in your cursing. 😉 (Then Elaine clued me in, and all was ok again.)

      Congratulations! I can’t wait to see your work!
