Honorable Mention award for my work, Watt & Shand #9. This is a very classy and well run event and they do it up right, beginning with a brief awards ceremony. As I was called up on stage to pick up the award, they flashed the image of my work on the screen on stage--definitely my 15 seconds of fame!

My deep and sincere thanks to the staff and volunteers at the Museum and the Greater Harrisburg Arts Council for providing such a rewarding exhibition opportunity. It's potentially a bit disconcerting to switch from spending a great deal of time alone and hard at work in the studio, to meeting and greeting at a public venue like an opening, but last night was a pure pleasure. I am so amazed and grateful when people come up to talk to me about my work and I get to tell the stories behind it that motivate and drive me.
