100% Pure Florida Exhibition

Once I Had A Crazy Dream / 24x33/ ©St.Hilaire Nelson

I am happy to announce that I have been accepted into the Fifth Avenue Art Gallery's 100% Pure Florida exhibition again this year. Three years ago, one of my collages won Best of Show there. That's a tough act to follow, right?

I am feeling pretty good about having been selected, as there were 240+ pieces submitted for consideration from 100% Florida artists, and mine was chosen to be among the 64 pieces of artwork that will be included in the exhibit.

This piece was one of six finalists in the 2008 Sport Art Competition for the U.S. Olympic Committee. The kid looking through the Olympic rings is my daughter, Emilie. My husband took a fantastic reference photo with his underwater camera housing!

The quote is by Wilma Rudolph, an absolutely amazing athlete who overcame incredible odds.
