I went over to the art gallery yesterday to respond to a call for volunteers to come and fold flyers/mailers for the upcoming juried art show next month. I enjoyed my time there talking to Susan, the new director and Estelle, who has helped out there for well over a year or more at the front desk. I folded for a couple of hours and then I walked around looking at the art. Before I did a group of kids from a local school came through to see the show and it was fun watching them look and vote for their favorites... It was quite a mix of photography, digital photography...
paintings, and drawings...
I've always liked this photo that I first saw in the book Family of Man years ago. I liked the way this student/artist took the photo outside it's previous boundaries...
and I loved this piece of sculpture. It just made me smile big time.
The title is: "Life Sucks".
don'tcha just love it?
I liked this prize winner...
maybe because it conveyed a different emotion to me
and made me FEEL more.
This didn't win an prize either, but to me it conveyed a lot of emotion.
I thought it was fun. I volunteered to be available to help on the day the judges
judge the works to be in the juried show!
I learned so much last time, I am sure this year will
be as meaningful and helpful for me.
The judges this year are female too.
Last year they were all male.
I am curious to see if that makes a difference and if so how. ****
I also went to the thrift store yesterday
to satisfy my addiction;
to drop off a big bag of books for their free shelves;
and to buy some really cool stuff!
