The International Society of Scratchboard Artists‘ 4th Annual Juried Exhibition is in full swing and runs through July 26th. I traveled to Frederick, MD this weekend to see the show and attend the artists’ reception. Awards in the Master and Open divisions were given at the reception. I’m thrilled and honored to report that “K9 Ronin” received an Award of Excellence in the Open division. It is an incredible and inspirational treat to see a show of nothing but scratchboard works. It’s also unusual, as it’s rare to see even one scratchboard drawing in most art shows.
