Two of my pastel pieces were juried into the Iowa State Fair this year (August 7-17). Be sure to visit the Cultural Building while you are at he Fair. The fine arts exhibit has been moved to the 3rd floor of the Cultural Building. If you are trying to find a cool place to hang out at the fair, this building is now air conditioned. There is also an elevator if you don't want to climb the stairs to see the show. Enjoy!
