The Representational Art Conference, or TRAC for short, is something I heard about after reading Patricia Watwood's essay Big Beauty and Form Sense (I blogged about her essay back in the spring when it was published in American Arts Quarterly), which was originally presented there. The papers presented at this conference have impressed my wife and me, and we thought we might try to make it out to TRAC 2015 in November. I entered a juried show with a grand prize: entry into a contest for a free trip to TRAC 2015. I didn't win the free trip but some good publicity is always nice. Thank you to the Jurors, Artist Steven DaLuz, European Museum for Modern Art Director José Manuel Infiesta, and Sadie Valeri Atelier Director Sadie J. Valeri.
