Competition exhibition in GALLERY ONE ElllEVEN in Leesville, Louisiana.

Updated: Feb 1

I live in Louisiana, USA. In September 2019 year I took part in a competition exhibition in GALLERY ONE ElllEVEN in Leesville, Louisiana. Recently I found the video I made about this event. It was a regular competition exhibition, but it doesn’t look for me now. I realized how good we lived without coronavirus.

I entered the competition with my two pressed plant arts:


Sea Turtle is swimming in the ocean close to the seafloor. Seaweeds  grow on the seafloor. Different fish are swimming near sea Turtle.

Panda is sitting and eating branches of bamboo. Stems of bamboo are behind the panda. One branch of azalea is near at panda.

And “Sea Turtle” got a prize. It was very pleasant for me. This year coronavirus pandemic did a big mess in our life. I came to the conclusion how important for me as an artist to show my arts to people, to know how people react to my arts. It’s not interesting to create something just for myself at all. No art shows, no communication with customers in real life, and as a result no mood for creation.

I know I need to be patient, all of us need to be patient during the pandemic. Someday our regular life will come back, customers will go to look at arts in art galleries again, receptions at exhibitions in art galleries will be crowdie and nosy as they used to be.
