Unexpected Recognition

February 11, 2011

Last night I attended the awards ceremony for the Howland Community Open at The Arts Center in Corvallis. The event draws one of the largest crowds, probably reaching the maximum capacity for the building.  It’s a chance to recognize amazing artwork created throughout the community from all age brackets and abilities. This year there were 3 youth categories ,  non-professional, professional, curators choice and the beloved People’s Choice Award.  Was there another? Probably, but I’ve forgotten.

A Walk in the Woods , yes my creation, received the Professional award this year. A total shocker since there were soooo many incredible works exhibited.  A big thanks to the exhibition committee jurors for the award and to Hester Coucke for her support.

      It would have been nice to have some family there but no one was able to attend. Plus I had no idea about the award.
      Thanks to you all!
