Last Thursday evening was the reception and opening of The Art Center’s new Inter-dimensional Sculpture and Photography show at their Premiere Gallery in the Bank of America Tower. It’s a great show with every bit of the gallery space filled with entries.
We had a very nice crowd for the reception. TAC members, contributing artists and lots of guests really livened things up.
I was very pleased with the curating and two of my pieces were in the main room. It was lucky that the Turning Arts Group has so many pedestals that we could bring to add to TAC’s, since we had many sculptural entries.
About 45 minutes into the festivities they announced that they were ready to make the awards. They started with the sculptures and I was delighted that Turning Arts Group member, Tom Grzybala, was awarded third place for his very sculptural camphor pedestal box.
I was very pleased that I was awarded second prize for my “A Question of Balance” piece. This was the favorite of my entries and as mentioned in a previous blog, one of my first forays into sculpture.
You could tell how happy I was when I received my award.
Best of all, one of the guests visiting the show bought my piece. So it was a wonderful night for me.
First prize went to Leland Williams with his wonderful Sea Turtle piece.
Next were the awards for photography. Jeff Zeitlin won third place for his beautiful black and white landscape.
Mary Atwood, President of The Art Center won second place with her dramatic dragonfly wings
First prize went to Pablo Rivera with his beautiful photo of a man and a woman. He also does sculpture, so I was happy he didn’t sweep that side of the show as well.
I am really excited by my results at this show and have already started on some additional sculptural pieces.
