just stopping in for a minute with some good news!
But I will say this; I was a little leery about mine... I entered in Printmaking, Book arts, and Illustration. I figured my chances were pretty good for printmaking (2nd place) and book arts (1st place)...
but the shocker (and probably the upset) of the night was when they announced illustration. I received 1st place for a 3-D paper sculpture/illustration I did called The Fifth Day. I was actually a little embarrassed. They read the honorable mention, and I thought I was out then, but I kept with them, thinking that maybe I would get third... or really reaching second at best... but I truly was shocked when they called my name for my piece. It made me a little woozy. Maybe that's a weird reaction...
I will post more about the pieces on a later date.
it really is a great show. If you happen to be in the Rexburg area in the next two weeks (anyone?), I recommend stopping by the Spori Gallery. It really is a boon to work with so many other talented artists. I think I might have been one of the only peeps who dressed up though... I just love dressing up for stuff. It was a really fun night.
Awards our friends received:
Daniel George placed 2nd in Photography, and received honorable mention in Printmaking!
there were more awards but that is all I can remember... great job peeps!
