December has been an exciting month for me.
Below are some of the highlights:
1. I am proud to say that “Stage Fright”, my Bearden-inspired collage, (see my previous post below) was chosen to hang at The Mint Museum Uptown during the Romare Bearden Southern Recollections Exhibit with the other winners of that contest. It will be on display from Dec. 15, 2011 – Jan. 8, 2012. Don’t miss this wonderful exhibit.
2. I am also the proud recipient of an Arts and Science Council (ASC) 2012 Regional Artist Project Grant for $2,000. This project was made possible through the support of the North Carolina Arts Council, a state agency, the Blumenthal Endowment, and the arts councils in Cabarrus, Cleveland, Gaston, Iredell, Mecklenburg, Rowan, Rutherford, and York (SC) counties. More on my art project in future posts.
