On June 1st of this year, I was a part of 9 photographers who entered this year's photography and video exhibition and competition. Of the 18 pieces entered, my Close up Rose won second place! I have never entered a competition before since graduating college 6 months ago, and have never won any award for entering. I am honored to have been chosen. This exhibit will be up the entire month of June at the River Valley Art Center in Russellville, Ar, so stop by and see my two works as well as the others there.
