Didn't make the cut

I didn't get into that juried exhibit I just applied to. But I'm not too surprised seeing the actual number of artists that were ultimately chosen. Here are quotes from my rejection letter:

"We received 540 entries from 250 artists for this exhibit"

"Monochrome will include 13 works by 10 artists from across the U.S. and Belgium."


Apparently not a huge gallery or intended to be a big showing. Really, they are having a gallery exhibit with only 13 pieces? The gallery at the winery where I have an exhibition in January holds more pieces than that and their primary business is selling wine. I wonder if they had put in their literature beforehand that only 13 works would get chosen, how many artists would still have applied.

Oh well, there are other shows out there. No harm in continuing to apply.

Thanks for the help everyone.

Yeah, that actually seems like a VERY small number of pieces for a show. Maybe it's just one room or something. It was still fun trying to choose.

And I'll enter those pieces in more shows too.
