Taos, NM

Today, I got an email from the Taos Art Museum Gala Committee. You may recall that I entered a juried exhibit to benefit the museum. My gut tightened as I clicked the email and waited for it to open.

It read:

“Dear John,

“Thank you for your interest in the Taos Art Museum at Fechin House. We deeply appreciate your time and thought in submitting artwork for this year’s event. The 2016 Gala juror reviewed your artwork and is pleased to include Old Tree and Chamisa, and Rio Grande, Agave, and a Mountain in the auction.

:The volume of entries from across the nation made this process very difficult for the juror.  Congratulations on the interest Mr. Grauer expressed in your work.”

Yes, yes, YES!!

I think this is the first time my work has been in a museum!
