Friday night, June 9th 2023, we went to the Bower Center in Bedford, VA for their awards reception for the 11th Annual National Juried Exhibition, and I won an Award of Merit for “Palomino”. I got a great ribbon as well as a check! There were so many amazing pieces at this exhibit, I feel truly honored to have my work recognized.
“Soulful St Bernard” was also featured on the cover of the program, and the judge, Ray Kass, had several positive comments about my work both in his introductory remarks and his comments when I went up to receive my award. I’m so grateful to be able to exhibit at the Bower Center and attend these receptions. They are such fun and I really enjoy seeing so many different kinds of art in one place.
