What a way to end 2017 and begin the new year 2018!
Thank you to Jim Sisley, owner of Tryst Gallery in Leesburg, for the gracious invitation to be featured artist for 6 weeks at Steel Magnolias Exhibit. In conjunction with Leesburg’s First Friday celebration the show’s opening reception on December 1st included an artist talk. I spoke about the purpose of art and its value to both creator and viewer. Over 60 artists and art enthusiasts were in attendance.
On January 5th I returned for a second artist talk and reception on a bitter cold night with wind chills in the negative numbers. We warmed up with hot chocolate laced with cream and sherry. With many artists in the audience, I spoke about planning and process.
Tryst Gallery recorded both events for Facebook. The links are below:
I hope you enjoy listening. Art inspires…it’s for everyone!
