Art Show

Here are some of my favorite pieces (and yes, mine are here too!) that are currently in the 41st Annual Multi Media Mini Show in Redlands, Ca. There were some other pieces I wanted to get shots of but unfortunately was not able to-lots of people near that area during the reception!These pieces cannot be more than 14 1/2" -so you can get an idea of the sizes. At the reception on Sunday, I actually spoke to the jurist, a photographer ( a brilliant one , at that!) Marguerite Garth. I have to say she has amazing taste (and not just saying that because I am in the show!). This show was ALOT different this year! For one, fewer pieces were in this show than previous. And, the one thing I LOVED!!! There was SO much more Mixed Media pieces. SO unique. I was in awe. I feel very fortunate to have gotten all 3 of my pieces juried in. So many regulars who get in this show did NOT get in. When I was chatting with the jurist and she asked me if I had a piece in the show, I told her I had 3 and she giggled :) She asked which were mine and I told her and she gave me a huge compliment. I was thrilled!
See the cool teapot here with the "Blindfolded Man?" That won first place. It was awesome-and the artist (Dan Soury)was a charachter!LOL And the brightly colored abstracts there? "Emerge" and "New Eyes" are by my wonderful friend, Cindy Jones Lantier! Of course, my 2 assemblages got grouped with one of the amazing Richard Freund's assemblages!
