Pensacola Museum of Art - Juried Show

"First Evening in Venice" 14x18.

I'm happy to announce that my work resulting from the Italy adventure has been juried into the Pensacola Museum of Art! It's their 60th Annual Members' Exhibition!
Our art museum has a rich history that dates back to 1906 when the Spanish Revival Style structure was built as our first permanent jail. It also housed the Courthouse, Police Department and Shore Patrol. In 1954, members of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) envisioned a venue to exhibit traveling art exhibitions... and provide a meeting space, as well as a venue for lectures, films...

For the opening reception, the museum was packed out! It was my pleasure to meet a crowd of new folks. 
Interested to see the inspiration for this studio piece? Check out my previous blog post where I take you on a trip to Italy (click here).
