Standing Ovation has Found a Show!!!

Pardon my excitement, but I am so totally delighted to announce that "Standing Ovation" has found a show!!! It was one of 32 artworks selected from 160 entries to Infinity Gallery's on-line International Fibre Art show. You can view the entire show on-line at the links I've provided above. "Standing Ovation" will also be on display at the Invitational Show of teacher's work at Quilt Canada/Quilt Ontario in London, Ontario from May 24-28. You may recall that I blogged (Understanding Juror's Decisions) a couple of months ago about the four entries I made to Quilt Canada's National Juried Show, of which two were accepted and two declined. "Standing Ovation" was one of the declined pieces, but still remains my favorite piece of the four I entered, and that is why I submitted it to the Invitational Show of teacher's work instead. It is particularly gratifying for me to have this piece appreciated at an art show, and a wonderful lesson on why we should never let a rejection get us down.


  1. Congratulations, Elaine -- and thank you! First, I agree -- 'Standing Ovation' is a beauty, and it's great to learn it has found a show.

    Second -- the thanks -- because as I browsed around the Infinity site, I found a show into which I could enter my one and only black and white piece, 'My Back Yard', inspired by Pamela Allen, for whom I served as 'gofer' at Quilt Canada in Calgary last year. I took the plunge and entered it into "Black and White", including the pre-show.

    Best wishes for continued success!

  2. Way to Go! Now my date is super popular=)

  3. Proof,once again, that judging shows is a less than perfect science. I think it is just a matter of believing in yourself, and finding the right piece for the right show. You do wonderful things.
