Mosaic Monday / Tons of Stuff Happening!

"Bubo"

Yesterday I went up to the Creative arts Center to photograph some works in progress by some of my classmates for a promo-video I want to create, more on that below. When I arrived, my teacher handed me a postcard for the upcoming member's show, I was shocked and honored to find that they used my piece for the postcard invitation, yay for Bubo the bot! So today I have to try to get a  handful in the mail. The show opens this Thursday Sept 16th.

Third Space
"Art And The City"

..............................
I have started a new blog for a Mosaic Art Card Swap that I initiated. You can find that at:
I am swapping 3.5 x 2.5 mosaic art cards with both classmates and cyber pals. Our first swap theme is Day of The Dead. I have a handful of people enlisted that are excited about this tiny mosaic art swap  project.
......................
And last but certainly not least I have to tell you about an exciting project some of my classmates are taking part in. Katrina Doran taught a class this past year on creating 3-d armatures and her students are finishing up huge flowers that will be on display at the State Fair of Texas this year. I did not join in the fun because I am just not ready to work in 3-d yet and working against a deadline like these ambitious mosaic artists have done would have driven me crazy. I am so proud and in awe of everyone involved in this and can not wait to see all of the flowers together in the gardens. Later this week I will try to finish a quick little promo video I am working on to promote this really cool local mosaic project. For now go on over to Katrina's blog to check out a great preview of just a small sampling of the works that will be out at the State Fair from Sept 24th - Oct.17th.
