Halifax Art Show
The Halifax Art Show was a total success. The write-up in the paper brought many people to the show and all were very complimentary. For me, just meeting old friends and making new ones who share a love of art is worth the price of admission. The Museum of Arts and Science's guild gave me a purchase award for a landscape of a sunset river scene on the Tomoka River. This piece will become part of their permanent collection for Art in Public Places. Another pleasant surprise was an invitation for a show at the Ormond Memorial Art Museum and Gardens. I also had a few comments from folks who read my previous blog and watched the video essay on The Banishment of Beauty. If you haven't seen it, you should. Scott Burdick did a fantastic job of articulating why we should value art for the sake of its beauty and craftmanship.
