Love how they play off of each other!
Later that evening I attended the opening of the 2012 Annual Regional Exhibition at the Center for Creative Arts. Danielle Rice, executive director of the Delaware Art Museum was this year’s juror who was gracious and attended the reception. My painting Koi #6 received an Honorable Mention. Met some new artists and saw some friends who stopped by to say hello and see my work. A big thank you to all!

In her Juror’s statement, Dr. Rice said “Artists put themselves on the line when they create something from nothing and they open themselves up to criticism again when they exhibit their work. …Without your courage and creativity, the world would be a dull place indeed.”
Here’s to working together to helping our communities shine through art.
