so i got the call thursday evening that my painting "osaka night" wasn't accepted into the 2007 art maui show. i was a bit bummed, but not devastated. after all, one person's masterpiece is another person's junk. i was asked to come by the maui arts and cultural center today to pick up the rejected piece. upon arriving and giving the stewards my receipt for the painting, i awaited the humbling experience of carrying my rather large piece across the lawn to my car. ten minutes passed and they still hadn't emerged from the depths of the gallery. come to find out the painting had been accepeted and they made a mistake. apparently mine was one of the few that had received all three jurors' green stickers. those few pieces had been put aside and someone thought that they were rejects. so i am assuming there were a handful of artists like myself that got the "sorry your piece was not accepted this year" call. oops!
