Yesterday, I helped hang some amazingly gorgeous art work for the 50th Anniversary show of the NGAE! We have hung 100 pieces from approximately 60 different artists from across the country. Additionally, there are works from 9 past featured artists on exhibit. I happen to be one of those! The 4 watercolor pieces displayed by Don Weller, the show's juror, are spectacular. Wow!
The show is a fundraiser for scholarships and fellowships awarded every year. This year we increased our scholarships and fellowships from $1500 to $3400. Even the awards for "best works " of art increased in amount! I am hoping that there are a lot of sales so that next year we will be able to fund even more scholarships.
