Yes, again rejected or "not selected" for a juried show. Something that still stings but can fade to dullness once the letter is filed away. Does it help to know how many works are submitted (over 1000) by how many artists (over 300) from how many states (over 35) plus Canada? And to know only 65 pieces were chosen? Maybe...probably. Kudos to those artists accepted!
I am a fan of this juror's curatorial skills. But after three times entering shows this juror juried and not receiving the check mark to "your entry has been accepted" the message seems clear. With every rejection I have to pull out my copy of Robert Henri's The Art Spirit and turn to page 14. His words soothe the "not selected" soul.
