A few weeks ago, I was VERY excited to be juried into the Art is Community III art show, in Buxton Maine. It was my son's first time going to an art show opening (he's 9)... and he was the one who first noticed that I had won First Place in the Mixed Media and Sculpture category! I think it was just as exciting for him as it was for me!

First Place! Woo-hoo!!

I was beyond surprised, and totally honored! To make things even MORE exciting, I received an email the next morning that I also was voted 2nd place in the People's Choice vote, the night of the show's opening!

My son, downstairs at the "create your own art" table.

If you get a chance to see the show, please do! It's a great variety of wonderful work from Maine artists! - and don't forget to head downstairs & see the "gift shop" full of artwork by the artists upstairs in the show!
