The Reception & Awards Ceremony for the 2017 Irving Art Association‘s National Animal Art Juried Exhibition was held Sunday, September 10th from 2-4pm at the Jaycee Park Center for the Arts in Irving, Texas. To my great delight my piece, “Texas Longhorn- II” was recognized with an Honorable Mention, which was accompanied by both an award and cash prize.
For more of Patsy photos from the Reception & Awards Ceremony, please visit the IAA photo Album on Photobucket.
For pictures of the award-winning art, you can see the Winners Gallery at the IAA’s website.
This year over 101 artists entered across various mediums, each artist had the potential to submit multiple works. Only 65 pieces are in the final show, 2 of which I’m thrilled to say are mine–specifically, two images in my Texas Longhorn series.

There is construction in the area, so best to check for the latest directions and road closures before you head out.
Please save the date and plan to come out and support the arts!
For those of you in the Dallas / Fort Worth area, please come on out and support me as well as other local artists at the next themed show at the Central Arts of Bedford. I’ll have several pieces for sale in the exhibit featuring some of the ‘critters’ (Ravens, Ducks, Longhorns, and Bees oh my!) I’ve taken photos of in my nature photography. I will be on hand until at least 9pm to admire the works of others, and to talk about my own photographic works. I hope to see you there!
