Artistic Pursuits and Exhibitions
Many accolades, some deserved, since 2010. One of the most gratifying aspects of entering a Fine Arts Show and winning comes from the cash prize. The monies received provide me with funds to purchase more assemblage parts as well as the opportunity to purchase art created by local artists such as Carolyn Sleeper (pottery) and others.
One nice prize: This year, 2015, won First Place in the Arts of the Pamlico 51st Fine Arts Show [3D], Washington, NC. The assemblage, titled: Esther Williams Reliquary included pottery, wood, vintage photos and much much more.
I found my ribbons, the prize-winning beauties, in a drawer the other day. The ribbons are proof, in a weird way, that my art exists. Most of it stays here, in the gallery or the studio… when My Art makes its way out into the world, such work is aptly rewarded and thus my Art Ego is Stroked. Thanks, jurors over the years, for appreciating what I create.
