My Beetle mosaic from last month recently took best in show at the members show for the Dallas Creative Arts Center. The exhibit is an eclectic mix of painting, mosaics, and 3-d projects. The show is called "Unleashed" and is at the Mary Thomas Studio Gallery. It will run until October 17th, and there will be a closing reception on the 17th 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
1080 Bldg. at 1110 Dragon Street
Dallas Texas 75207.
I was really honored just to be included in the show, and when I saw a ribbon next to my piece my jaw really hit the floor. I feel really validated with this award. My mosaic work and style is sort of untraditional among mosaic artists. I am really more of a mixed media artist using my computer, collage elements (created in photoshop) and glass to create works that I feared could be seen as too crafty for the fine art world and too mixed media-ish for the fine craft mosaic word. With this recognition I have decided it is time to put those worries to rest and just keep playing.
