|Me and A Resinable Trio with my|
certificate and prize
I have to say I'm feeling a bit gob-smacked! I went to the Fiber Fusion opening today at Gallery At The Park in Richland, WA and ended up winning Golden Acrylic's Best Use of Mixed Media prize for A Resinable Trio !!
It is such an honor just to be juried into the show - but to receive an award as well.... wow!! Especially in light of the INCREDIBLE pieces I saw in the show today! The venue is fantastic and the show is incredibly well-curated!!
|My bowls are in the center, The egg-shape entitled The Birth |
of the Grid (to the right of my bowls) won the Juror's Choice
award! It's amazing!
Our show even made the news again! Here's the link to the Tri-cities NBC Affiliate (KNDO/KNDU) piece they did about our show (my bowls are shown near the beginning of the piece and then I'm shown accepting my award towards the end). http://www.nbcrightnow.com/category/189473/video-center?clipId=12487285&autostart=true
|My friend Barb Matthew's pieces (the circular |
sculptures) and my other friend Crystal Edward's piece
(above and to the left of Barb's pieces) were also in the show!
Thank you to everyone for your encouragement - I really appreciate all the love, inspiration, and support you've all given me!! Especially my husband and daughter - without you both, I would be lost!

and yes, those are sock monkeys!!
For those who have the chance to visit Allied Art's Gallery At The Park in Richland, WA - the show is on through June 23rd, 2016. It really is an impressive-looking show, and it is the first travelling show ever in the history of the Surface Design Association!
