I entered my first juried cup show back in March 2010...it was at my undergrad school, Kent State University in Ohio, where I got my BFA in...1975 (where did these years go?).... decided this show would be a good starting point. I didnt expect to have my cup accepted...but it did! Went to the opening..it was the first time I had been back to Kent in 15 years...and just enjoyed being there, and seeing all the amazing cups.
Mine had a red dot before the show opened..the first one they sold..really happy about that..
