35th Annual Midland Artists Guild Juried Exhibit Award of Excellence


Here it stands!  My very first art piece name “In Deed Roses” receives my first ever award from an exhibition!  The prize was received at the opening reception of the 35th Annual Midland Artists Guild Juried Exhibition

Auto shock came over me when the announcer and jurist were ready for me on the stage for the Award of Excellence.  I must admit I got teary eyed on the way up and in no way was expecting it to compete with over 100 works on display.

The piece spills down with blue transparent acetate rectangles with 45 different figures spreading vertically and horizontally.  Each individual idea for the poses came straight to my brain with no sight.  The artwork hangs on a silver frame 6 feet above the ground.

The award came with a cash prize of $100, gift restaurant certificates from Stacker’s Grill & Cafe Americano.

Free admission to see the exhibit Creative 360 Art Gallery in Midland, Michigan running April 5th- May 12th.
