I went to the Delaware Center for Contemporary Art last Monday to do a workshop with two groups of High School Students. They toured the current exhibits at the DCCA and then did a workshop with me using assorted materials to make their own baskets. They did a nice job. Big thanks to them and Holly at the DCCA for making it happen!

Here are some photos from the Greenbelt Elementary School Art Show. This ties in with the National PTA's "Reflections" program. The winners from tonight's show will go on to compete in the Maryland State show and, possibly, the National competition. Winners were decided by the amount of votes they each got. Every person who attended the show recieved four stickers. The 10 pieces with he most votes goes on to the Maryland State competition. It saved me from judging and gave each [person a part of the decision. The result? Pieces I thought would not be in the running are now going on to the Maryland State competition. Oh, well. The kids had a good time and they had fun making some great art.

Well, Aretha and Bob will probably NOT be sitting at the Morisette table for Thanksgiving this year, but, chances are good that their BIG HEADS will be running around the Detroit Thanksgiving Day parade. Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Be Thankful for all we have and all we can do with our talents FOR one another.

This piece, "Red Lined Merchandise" will be up for grabs at the annual Transformer Auction. Unfortunately, this event is SOLD OUT, so if you don't already have a ticket, you can't come. But, on the other hand, SOLD OUT is a very good thing for the folks at the Transformer Gallery, a non-profit, artist-centered organization that connects and promotes emerging visual artists within regional, national and international contexts. I owe a big thanks to Welmoed Laanstra (curator for siteprojectsdc) for Jurying me into this show.
