One of my enameled panels is hanging in Kansas tonight. "Alchemical Utensils" was selected by juror Sarah Perkins for inclusion in the annual Topeka Competition in the Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library. It is an outstanding annual competitive craft exhibition at the Alice C. Sabatini Art Gallery. I am particularly gratified and awed at having something I did in enamels selected by such a world class enamelist. The exhibition runs from December 6th through January 19th. The opening reception will be from 5:30 - 8:30 on the 6th of December.
Three of my works will be included in this group exhibition. It is an "investigation into the work of metal artists / jewelers using organic form and natural based imagery in the development of their work." Curated by John Ready, director of the University Art Gallery at University of Wisconsin – La Crosse, the exhibition opens on Friday September 20th from 4-6pm and continues through the 12th of October.
