81, an oil painting by Sally Veach, was accepted into the juried show, American Landscapes, at the Maryland Federation of Art's Circle Gallery in Annapolis, MD. With 778 entries, Sally was one of only 69 artists selected for the exhibition. The show was juried by Liza Key Strelka, Manager of Exhibitions at The Phillips Collection in Washington, DC.
"81" is about the juxtaposition of gritty Interstate 81 vs scenes of immense pastoral beauty, as it courses through the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, where Sally lives. The painting is available for purchase, and you can see it at Sally's current show, Impressions of Shenandoah & Beyond (see below). The exhibition dates for American Landscapes are August 12 - September 10, 2016 at MFA Circle Gallery, 18 State Circle, Annapolis, MD, 21401. Opening reception is August 21, 3-5pm.
