Arts Alive was Alive with Magic!

Hallelujah! I had so much fun at the Arts Alive! reception last Saturday at Art of Wine in Eureka, CA. The show will be up through the end of the month and may actually be extended to the end of June. I will keep you updated on that. If you live in Humboldt County and missed the opening, I hope you will swing by Old Town and take a look at some amazing photography and digital art.

The show was the culmination of seven months of planning, deciding, learning how to mount and frame art. The icing was the show itself and having an opportunity to talk with the folks who came in for a little wine and a whole lot of art. I loved watching people be mesmerized and engaged by the art itself, and hearing how some pieces spoke to them at a level of heart and soul. This is always my intention with my art, and I just get all giddy when other people feel that too.

Thanks go out again to Victoria Ryan, who had the vision for this show and was a most excellent curator. I had hoped to take a lot of photos to post here on my blog, but it was too distracting the night of the show. This photo was taken the day of the hanging. Yes, I was definitely glowing.

All I can say is woohoo!
