Random musings, observations, and extended blathers by John Kurman
Monday, March 12, 2012
Since the beginning of the year, I've been rejected by every juried art show that I have entered. When you consider that the average entry fee is about $40, that's a lot of wasted cash. Ah, well, so, I finally got into a show, the 2012 Rockford Art Museum Midwestern Biennale. The show was juried by Lisa Stone, curator of the Roger Brown Study Collection at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Way to go, Lisa, and way to go, Rockford!
Rockford accepted my work two years ago, so I must be on a roll there.
Here' s the entry that got me in, entitled The Smokermakers.
The term "random walk" is attributed to Karl Pearson, through a 1905 letter exchange in the journal Nature. It describes the path of a hypothetical drunkard. Since I hardly ever drink, I suppose that description fits me as well as any other. Other than that, I'm a well-muscled, good-looking, middle-aged, no-nonsense Northern Barbarian type that would just as soon put you to work as say "Hello" to you. So, Hello there! Now get back to work!
