In Bloom Art Installed!

A little behind here, as usual: back in May I attended the awards Ceremony and Grand Opening of the "In Bloom" exhibit benefiting HCS Family Services at Oak Brook Center…I won a Merit Award which was a nice honor. The had a lovely reception and ribbon cutting ceremony followed by a walking tour and then an evening reception which I had to forego, to pack up for my Iowa Art Fair. It was a great afternoon.

With artist,Carla Bank, and her painted frog: "Firebelly Ozzie"…turns out she owns one of my pieces!Screen shot 2011-06-03 at 6.16.51 PMThese were the top 3 award winners. You'll have to check them all out if you find yourself in Oak brook…they will be on display through August and auctioned off in September. I'd love to do another project like this…aside from the headaches of moving it around, etc. it was totally worth the effort.
