Today was Virginia Western Community College's Spring Fling Annual Juried Student Art Show. This spring I've been taking a couple courses there to learn a bit about graphic design and web design. As such I was able to participate in the show which was quite exciting.
I submitted a couple pieces and not only did I sell them, but I also won the IET Director Purchase Award as well as The Oakey Art Award. It feels wonderful to get my art out there and to receive some recognition in the process. There were so many great pieces in the show; I am honored that I won anything at all!
