Wild Things, a juried exhibition in Pennsylvania.

I was recently accepted into a juried show at the Sweetwater Art Center in Sewickley, PA (about 12 miles from Pittsburg).

Here is the description of the show pulled directly from their website:

Wild creatures. Wild urges. Wild colors. Wild movement. For the upcoming exhibition, Wild Things, Sweetwater Center for the Arts is seeking art with an unrestrained spirit that upsets its surroundings and moves the viewer. This exhibition coincides with Sweetwater's awareness campaign featuring a public art installation created by UK Street Artist, Filthy Luker.  All 2D, 3D and mixed media are eligible for submission. We are especially interested in kinetic sculpture and performance artists for the opening reception. Unleash your craziest passion in this ferocious exhibition.
Wild Things will be juried by Cynthia Shaffer, a mixed media artist favoring bugs, bones and sea creatures to traditional art materials. The show will include a sampling of her work which can be seen at www.cynthia-shaffer.com.

Cynthia Shaffer is a lovely artist and I'm proud that she liked this piece (snake nest, made in late 2012) enough to accept it into this fine show.  I'm looking forward to seeing the other artists who were chosen to hang at Wild Things.
