If the calendar is turning to the end of August, it must be state fair time in Minnesota. Affectionately known as the “Great Minnesota Get Together” the fair begins this Thursday, August 23rd, and runs through Labor Day, September 3rd. One of the showcases each year is the fine art exhibition — a juried competition of Minnesota artists. Last year 361 art pieces were accepted into the final exhibit, selected from over 2,500 works. I’m happy to say that my submission for this year has been accepted into the exhibit. My photograph is titled “Rain on my tulip window.” If you’re planning to attend the state fair, be sure to enjoy the Fine Art exhibition. You’ll have the opportunity to see a collection of wide-ranging art by some of the very best Minnesota artists.
