A Blizzard in July

I am so thrilled and honoured to have the photo above accepted into the Cairde Visual Exhibition. I wasn’t sure if I should enter into the Open Submission which invited entries from Irish and International artists but I decided if I didn’t give it a shot I’d never know.

The email came through to say I’d been successful and out of over 500 entries to get in to the final 70ish this is some achievement for me. I never thought I’d ever see any of my work displayed in The Model, Sligo but in a few days I will!

Now comes the scary part. I’d love to go to the opening….but…I’m very nervous about it. It’s daft really. I can stand in a busy airport departure lounge with no bother at all but the thought of going to an exhibition opening has me scared  rigid. I know if I don’t go I’ll be beating myself up about it and as this is the biggest exhibition I’ve been a part of I think I should go…..but…..anyway I’ll see how I feel nearer the time. I wish I had some people to come along and support me but I don’t.

If any of you out there are free to come along it’s on Wednesday July 11th at 6pm in The Model, Sligo. I’d love to see you.

  1. So proud of you! Yay! I hope someone will go with you. You can’t miss it! I’m in USA or I would take you! Hugs! 🙂

  2. I would if I could. It is a couple of days to early as I has not yet got my feet into Ireland. I hope you will find the courage to be there. I will think of you the whole day, I promise. And by the way…congratulations to you. It is a fantastic photo . I really like it.
    Wish you all the best / Lena in Sweden.
