I'm thrilled to post that my tryptic on Tennessee music placed third place in the Anything Goes! exhibit at the Gaffney Visitor's Center that was part of the Peach Festival celebrations. The exhibit was judged by Jane Nodine. Thanks to all at CAVA and the Gaffney Ledger for the publicity of the show. It's nice to be surrounded by talented friends and neighbors here in Gaffney.
I know I took a photo class to learn how to photograph and edit my works but who has time when summer is counting down? Fortunately for me, I know so many great people especially some of my previous gifted students. Justin Kelly is now an art teacher, artist, photographer, and jack of all trades. I'm very proud of him. Justin and his friend Tom came by "Disco Laundry", my studio, to help photograph new works for the update of my webpage. Sometimes students and those that buy art have no idea the expenses that go along with being an artist such as paying for professional photos, supplies, webpage yearly fees, applications for exhibitions, memberships in artist guilds, postcards, mailers, storage, gas, etc! Even if art is a side gig, exhibiting can be expensive and the cost of said items has to be added into the total price of the work if sold. I am appreciative to have art friends like Justin I can depend upon when it's crunch time!
