Dear Patricia,

Congratulations! Your artwork “Fall from Grace” has been selected for inclusion in the 27th annual Northern National Art Competition. This year our judge, Linda Benedict-Jones, chose 87 images from the 512 images that were submitted by 266 artists. It looks like it is going to be another wonderful exhibit.

I am, to say the least, thrilled. This is the third year in a row that I have had a piece in the Northern National which draws submissions from across the country. This year, it means even more since the juror, Linda Benedict-Jones, has worked in the field of photography for her whole career.  The following is from the local Rhinelander paper:

“…Benedict-Jones is an adjunct professor of art at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Penn. She is also Curator of Photography for the Carnegie Art Museum. “

“It was an honor to be invited as the Juror for the Northern National Art Competition,” Benedict-Jones said. “I try to keep a very open mind when I begin the process, and typically I’m much more stringent with photographic images since I have worked in the field for decades.”

The opening reception is Tuesday night at the Nicolet College art gallery, an event that is so cool it borders on the swanky.
