My 15 Minutes ...

Well here's my Toot Toot! Who knows when I'll get another 15 minutes LOL

I submitted 3 assemblages for a juried at show at the
Core New Art Space Gallery and they were all accepted! Ginger from my local book arts group also had 2 pieces accepted, so we are on cloud 9!

I wasn't sure what to expect. The people at the gallery were really nice. The lady checking my pieces in didn't seem that interested at first ... then she looked at them and had this look of surprise and awe on her face. I wasn't sure if that meant she wasn't really that knowledgable about art and didn't know any better LOL Or if she did know art and just thought my pieces were unique.

Not sure how I feel about the artist reception being on Friday the 13th LOL


Here are some thumbnails of the pieces accepted. The third piece you can view in an old blog post.

Spiritus Vocis Spiritus Vocis - View 2 Journal Heart - Front Trumpet Carcass - View 2 Circus Shrine Circus Shrine - Elephant Burst-Out Detail
