Meridian Bi-State Art Competition, Meridian Museum of Art 

Following the art walk, I headed over to the Meridian Museum of Art for the reception for the annual Bi-State Art Competition. This was a great show and I was happy to have had two pieces accepted into it. One of mine won an achievement award! Yay. Here are the pieces I had in the show!
