Two Awards this Past Spring

It's always exciting to have work juried into a national show, but to receive an award for that work is even more deeply affirming!

When I arrived for the opening for the juried show
White/Black/Monochrome at the Bancroft Gallery in Cohasset on April 21, I was surprised and delighted to see an "Award of Merit" sign attached to the pedestal for my sculpture "Diatoms II." Shortly, I learned that this was a Fourth Place Award at the show, and I had a nice chat with the juror Beth Urdang who explained that she had a really challenging time deciding which prize should be given to which work among her top choices.

Later this Spring, I received even more exciting news: my sculpture "Two" had garnered "First Prize" in the 3D/Sculpture category at the the South Shore Art Center's 62nd Arts Festival.

Thanks to all who visited for 2016 Fall Open Studio. Had a wonderful time seeing old friends and clients and meeting new visitors - fun to chat with you and have you comment, touch, play, inquire, and purchase my work!
