I hope all the serious artists will forgive me, but above is a photo of the absolute coolest part of the show (and a delicious part of the reception!) The artwork was of superior quality of course. It only seems to improve every year. Pat Besl's pastel piece "Jack" won the best of show prize and quite deservedly so, it was just beautiful!
I was also impressed by the variety of arts represented. Sculpture, painting and photography along with etchings, fiber arts and collage. All this in only 57 pieces. Mary Murray, contemporary art curator at the Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute did a fabulous job, not a 'dud' in the bunch!

An etching titled "Self-Portrait" abstract etching is my entry for this show. Another artist's proof was entered in an on-line show last month. I made a very limited edition of these - 20 total. Of these there are now only 5 left, probably because I'm selling them for only $225. I know that's not much for an original etching but with the economy as it is I thought it would be a good thing to price it lower. It's such a great feeling to be able to own an original piece of art and I really didn't want money to get in the way.
If you're interested in purchasing one. stop by at the RACC this month or e-mail me and I'll get it right out to you :)
If the price is still a deterrent, click on the image to purchase an inexpensive photographic print in a variety of sizes from a reputable printer.
