Happy belated Thanksgiving!
I am pleased and honored to have three of my watercolor paper sculpture illustrations on exhibit in the 80th Annual Exhibition of Fine Art in Miniature juried show at the Mansion at Strathmore.
Today, I attended the artist reception for the 30th Annual National North American Miniature Art Exhibit at the Art Gallery of Fells Point in Baltimore Maryland.
I was surprised to see that my two entries, Birdwing Butterfly and my pink flamingo, titled, “Ruffled Feathers”, were both on display in the front window of the gallery. I was really thrilled to find out that “Ruffled Feathers” won 2nd place in the Mixed Media category! My first award for one of my watercolor paper sculpture illustrations!
One of my new paper sculptures will be on exhibit with the Maryland Federation of Art at the Circle Gallery in Annapolis, Maryland. The show is part of the Maryland Federation of Art’s 50th anniversary celebration featuring the Federation’s finest artists. The exhibit started on July 25 and goes through August 18, 2013 with an artists’ reception on August 1.
The show will feature my “Life on the Reef” sculpture including bright colorful clownfish among the coral reefs. The backdrop is painted in watercolor and gouache with the fish, crab and coral sculpted from painted paper. Even the sand is made from paper!
I will be attending the reception Thursday night and will post pictures from the event. If you happen to need something to do for a weekend activity, stop by the gallery and support Maryland artists. Otherwise, visit my blog next week and I’ll have posted some photos.
