Subject: US exhibition success
Posted by: Sue

Great news... I have had two prints accepted for the 1st Wood Engravers Network exhibition, over in the USA. WEN is an association with members from all over the States as well as worldwide, a younger version of the UK's Society of Wood Engravers; this is the first time they've organised a society exhibition. I feel honoured to get as many as two works into this show. I wish I could go and see it!

Venues so far....
