Bonnie Chapa Art Receives Special Recognition in Light Space and Time Gallery’s Open Art Exhibition in Photography Category

This was kinda cool to wake up to!
I decided that in 2015, in order to better understand my art for myself that I would enter some competitions, something that scares the hell out of me, but – #1, do what scares you and #2, the opportunity for me to learn & assess how my work compares to my peers is valuable.
Recently, and purely coincidental to my goal, I was invited to enter a juried show at the Brazos Valley Art League in College Station. I will find out if I am even accepted into their Jan 2015 show, later this month. But, until then, I see this competition all the time at Light Space and Time below at the link. They are pretty darn reputable. I have been watching them for about 2 years now. So, true to my usual self, 2015 isn’t even here yet and I couldn’t wait, so I entered 2 competitions. Call me crazy.
This morning I checked my email for the Light Space and Time Gallery entries to be announced today, NEVER ever expecting to see what I saw. 630 entries, 19 countries, 38 states – and 2 out of my 5 entries got Special Recognition, back to back in 14th and 15th place. “Cracked Beauty” and “I’m A Huge Fan”.
What you say? Yes! I had to look at it several times to believe it! I stuck my neck out and I’m pretty happy with the results for a first timer.
