Just wondering, do you ever go to the top art festivals websites to see who got into the show? Recently the Cherry Creek published the gallery for this year's show held in July in Denver. Maybe you applied and did, or didn't, get in. It is useful to see who is in the show, compare your images to what you see online and plan accordingly. It is most useful for getting an idea of what a top show will look like and what this year's jurors liked.

What do you think? Do you think you could make the cut?
