Ann Arbor Street Art Fair

Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, originally uploaded by spakulsk.

I think this may be the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair. One of four art fairs in Ann Arbor that all occur at the same time. This was shot with my Rolleicord TLR, color slide film cross-processed. I intentionally shot into the sun to get the flare…

Daffodils shot this spring with my Rolleicord TLR. The film is color slide film cross processed in C-41. This is my very first roll of medium format film ever shot…

Well – I’m still depressed…

…over not be selected by a local venue to display my artwork. I see they have released the 2012 schedule and I see one of the artists is from Pittsburgh, PA. I thought they were promoting LOCAL artists? Michigan or possibly Northwest Ohio. I really don’t think Pittsburgh is local. Maybe I am hung up on this rejection, but it was my first. It was also my first application – so I guess rejection will be a normal part of the process. But it still hurts. And releasing the 2012 schedule (that I am not a part of) still is painful. I should move on and I have in a ways – but I still keep coming back to this rejection. I will enter more shows – I just don’t know what will be my first. Ā So much for promoting local artists Village Theater. Ugh…
