I spent Saturday morning judging the Drawing category of the Fine Art Exhibition of the Washington State Fair. I learned that our state fair is the 7th largest in the nation! 1.2 million attend, and about a quarter of a million see the Art Exhibition. Wow. That's a pretty big deal.
I also learned that...OMG...you better be careful about how you frame the work you enter into a show!
I'll start at the beginning.
