March 16,2009

Well it has been awhile since my last post. I have been busy creating new characters. Why? Because a wonderful thing has happened. I am being asked to exhibit my "art".

The past two weeks I had 11 pieces at the Rome Community Theatre. This is the second year I have been asked to have my work there.They ask various artists to have a solo exhibit in the lobby of the theatre during the run of their performances. This is really a great arrangement. It gives the artist another venue to show their work and it decorates the lobby of the theatre.

From that exhibit I have been asked to participate in another one. these are little mini-shows, but little by little my working is getting out there. and one can lead to another. and that one can lead to another , and....

A few years ago I was so afraid to call what I do art. I was also afraid to enter "art exhibits". I did juried fine art and craft shows, but that is a different area all together. Once I stepped out, ignoring the fear, it became an amazing journey.

One of the best things I did was to join the local art association. I love the meetings. I am the different one there, but I am learning so very much. And oh! the networking is fantastic. If you do not belong to such a group, I urge you to find one in your area. You will be glad you did!
