A bit of progress in July

This past month, I have been rather busy with clearing and cleaning my work-spaces..both my garage and my basement. In the midst of this controlled chaos, I have managed to get a few things finished.

One of these projects is a new generation of pins and magnets that now awaits an epoxy resin coat. If all goes well, I should accomplish this before we hit another week of thunderstorms..

A very special honor..

Last night at the opening reception for the South County Art Association‘s 91st Annual Members’ Show, I received an award that means a great deal to me- the Visconti Sculpture Award  for best sculpture, awarded for my found object assemblage mask “Dream Eater”

This award is given in memory and honor of the late James Visconti,  a brilliant artist in many media who was a friend, teacher and mentor to me many years ago.

I would like to think that he would be very pleased to see how my work has grown and evolved over the years.

Of all the awards I have been given over the years, this one is definitely the closest to my heart.
