Is there anything more exciting….

than seeing your artwork published in a book?

Collaborative Art Journals

Tonight I received my copy of L.K. Ludwig’s newly released book “Collaborative Art Journals and Shared Visions in Mixed Media”. 

As I began to turn page after page, soaking in the beautiful candy, I was taken back when I looked at a page, recognized it and then looked underneath the photo to see this:

artist: Marci Glenn

Oh sweet affirmation!  Really, is there anything better than to be acknowledged as the person you knew you always were?   Thank you L.K. for including my art in the same book with so many talented, fabulous, well-known artists!

      Hi Laura! This was not an open call for art. I was part of a group of 12 that participated in a year long altered calendar swap. L.K. sent a direct request asking for permission to publish one of the altered calendars and my art was a part of that.

  9. I think you hit the nail on the head with the “is there anything better than to be acknowledged as the person you knew you always were?” Too often we who make things, are just thought of as strange, not in the “real” world or something else similar to that. It’s a real affirmation as you said to find yourself in print as it’s real, it’s seeable, you can show others that someone saw your work as worthy. It’s great to be noticed for what you make since it really is the you coming into the piece.
