Just because you enter an art show, doesn't mean you will get in. They are usually peer reviewed by other artists, so to be selected is pretty awesome. My painting (on the bottom of the easel) was selected for the Dutch Art 2017 Gallery Spring Show with the theme Call of the Wild. The opening reception was last Saturday, May 20, 2017. I knew the competition was tough as the art at the show was really good. The show will stay open for several months. Try to see it!
