Visions and Viewpoints National Juried Competition at the Lincoln Center Gallery.
My memory jug is on the pedestal in the middle of this view.

The Lincoln Center Gallery in Fort Collins hosted a national competition of fine art and I was lucky to have two of my found-object memory jugs selected for this exhibition by Guest Jurors Louis Recchia and Zoa Ace. Competitions are always hit-or-miss, but this time I studied the jurors' artwork on their websites, and entered pieces that were both colorful and whimsical, based on their visual leanings. 

This is my first time exhibiting in this newly remodeled gallery, my favorite venue in Fort Collins. 
The show, which opened last year on November 30, finished up yesterday, January 5, 2013 and I ran down with my tripod and camera to grab these installation views. So many reflections and lights make for a sparkling show but lend some difficult photography conditions.
