The Pasadena Historical Museum sponsored a juried competition Sunday, May 19, with the theme of "Relationships". It was juried by Ardis Willwerth and Jeannette Bovard. Members of the Pasadena Society of Artists entered artwork of acrylics, photography, watercolors, oils and ceramics.
Much to my surprise, I won first place! So I'm tooting my own horn. My piece is titled "Tangled Love" and is made up of two ceramic 'vases' that are tied together with copper wire. The wire does not thread threw the holes in any pattern, but instead symbolize how relationships can become tangled, knotted and twisted. BTW, the pieces are totally functional and can hold water for a floral arrangement.
April is a busy month for me. I'm furiously creating new pieces to have them ready for a couple of upcoming shows.
Thank you to my friends who dropped by the Prom Plus Spring Boutique on Saturday.
Thank you also to those who attended the artist's reception Saturday evening at La Galleria Gitana. That show, "The Spirit of Place" will be running until June 1. It is a wonderful collection of oils, pastels, watercolors, photography and ceramics all having to do with interior spaces. Hope you can check it out!
