Just heard my sculpture "Retreat at Sharks Bluff" was selected as one of the 93 artworks (out of 351 submitted) for the 2016 Newport Art Museum Annual Members Juried Exhibition. Only one entry per artist was allowed. The Exhibit runs from February 6th through May 22nd, with the Opening Reception on Friday, February 5th from 5 to 7 PM at the Cushing Gallery at Newport Art Museum.
I had a fantastic first day and evening at the Home Show. The people that came by my booth (235) had just wonderful things to say. It was nice to know that my hard work was appreciated. I am really glad that there were some folks who said they will now look at driftwood in a different way, and not just as firewood or something that clutters the beach. How cool is that!?! I also really enjoyed meeting the artists around me. They are some very talented people and very personable as well. I couldn't have asked for nicer show neighbors. Special thanks to artist Kim Ellery for the opportunity to show my sculptures, and to the RI Home Show for making a place for the arts.
