I'm very pleased to report that two of my paintings were juried into this year's Maine Open Juried Art Show (MOJAS) in Waterville, Maine and one of them "Coke, Ice and Pumpkin Pie" was awarded 2nd Place in the Acrylics category. As the title states, this is an annual competition with this year being the 23rd. My participation goes back to 2005. The Waterville Area Art Society (WAAS) www.waasmaine.org and Waterville Main Street www.watervillemainstreet.org are co-presenters of the event and do a great job putting it all together. This year there were, according to the exhibition brochure, 87 artists registered from 51 towns, with a total of 162 paintings entered. The judges chose 140 original paintings for exhibition and awarded 30 prizes totaling $3,300. The show runs through April 19th at the Waterville Public Library in downtown Waterville. Please stop by and enjoy if you're in the neighborhood.
