Monday evening is the big artist reception in Tampa. If you are new to this blog, my work, Surf’s Up, was selected from a few thousand entries to be among 40 works to hang in Amalie Arena for the coming year. Monday night, I will be there for the big unveiling along with some of the Tampa Bay Lightning and the team owners which sponsor the event. Prizes will be awarded and while I know this is trite, just having Surf’s Up hang in the arena for a year is enough for me. I am thrilled to be part of this prestigious group of artists.
On Friday and Saturday, October 9 and 10, I will be at the Ponce Inlet Garden Club annual Arts and Crafts show. It’s being held at the Community Center on Peninsula Avenue and I hope you will try to attend. Selfishly, I would love for you to see my latest works, but there are some wonderful craftsmen on hand with things that will suit everyone on your holiday shopping list. The show is held both indoors and outside. I will be inside in a room with three other great artists. Be sure to check out my hand painted coasters, boxed and ideal for a hostess gift. This will be my third year participating in this wonderful event.
