First Place Honor
I was humbled tonight and deeply honored at the awards ceremony for the group show Eye Candy at Art Center Sarasota judged by a couple of great artists, oil painter Kim Anderson and innovative sculptor Ryan Buyssens.
I was also happy to find out that the painting sold before the show opened. Such an amazing thing to hear! This painting was one that meant a lot to me and I wrote a blog entry about it [here] .
I was so proud to be chosen first place, I can't thank them enough. It means so much because this is such a talented group of artists. And they've been such a fun and welcoming group of people too.
Thank you to Kim and Ryan for taking so much time to talk with us and critique our work and talk shop. It was appreciated.
The opening reception will be Thursday evening, January 30, from 5-7 where they'll have the usual Garden Party bash with food trucks and the craft beer garden. Not to be missed. Eye Candy (and Nick) will be on view until March 6th.
