Fawne DeRosia was one of several area artists invited to exhibit work in the Celebrating Art: Juried Show Winners, Past and Present at Arts Clayton Gallery, located at 136 South Main Street in Jonesboro.
The opening reception for the month-long exhibit was Friday, January 7, 2011, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Then during Arts Clayton’s 10th annual juried art competition, held in February, she received an Honorable Mention for one of her lithographs, entitled Pretty Morgan. Forty-eight Georgia artists of 2 and 3-dimensional disciplines submitted over 150 entries into the competition. Out of the more than 150 entries, 55 dimensional and 9 sculptural works were chosen to be exhibited. Therefore, just having a work juried in (i.e., chosen for the exhibit) is indeed an honor, but to receive an award is even more special. Her photography was also chosen to be exhibited at Allan Vigil Ford Lincoln during the month of May. The exhibit will then move to Barnes and Noble.
