Friday night was opening night for the first real show I have been in. I entered a stone carving, and seven ceramic pieces, including several you have not seen. There were about 30 local artists participating, covering the 3D spectrum of art. There are hand-carved storyboards, fancy shell jewelry and combs, ceramics, stone carving, wood paintings, and a number of other things. I noticed that the judges were paying special attention to, and writing a paragraph about, one of my pieces - "Free-Form Bowl". Don't know if that means anything, but it was nice that they thought it interesting. I borrowed several pieces that I gave as Christmas presents last year, and labeled them as "From the private collection of..." - can't hurt to have them think that I've already been out there in the marketplace with other shows. I am going to give you all a small taste of what was there... I will get better pics (and more of them) to post this week. Enjoy!

Sounds exciting. I like your marketing strategy, and shameless self-promotion -- you have to do that in this media overloaded world.
