    Just a little braggin'

    We had our first annual art show in the art group my wife and I belong to. It's mostly a painting group, but I joined with my 3-D art when the wife joined with her painting... We had about 22 artists with 3 pcs each, plus several student artists from the local college where we held the show.

    I entered the 3 pcs below in the 3-D category. The artists voted on various categories on the artwork and I was voted best in category for my bowl in the 3-D category(And I only had to vote for myself twice ).
    I won a gift certificate to a local art supply store.. LOML will get to use it, they don't have much for wood turners.

    One of the students was a little boy who is autistic and attends some special classes at the college... he is quite the artist.. he won in the student category against some talented young artists. He's only 6 and quite the cute kid.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    Congrats Chuck. That is great being voted best in category. You have reason to be proud.

    Way to go Chuck, that has to be nice to get voted "Best" by your fellow artists!

    Chuck, that is something to brag about....great work. Any pics from the show of the other contestants work?

    My company does an art show a couple of times a year they call "Art from the cube" (cubical). They finally started allowing 3d and we've seen some pretty cool pieces the last couple of times. They have the display up at one of our buildings or at the local Union Station (Kansas City), but for voting they have an internal website for associates to vote for their favorites.

    Darren,
    I didn't take my camera to the reception, but Dianne did. Let me get them from her and I'll post a few.

    Sorry to have taken so long... It got decreed that I WOULD put in the shrubs we bought a couple of weeks ago.. I put in 17 shrubs this afternoon... let me tell you, my body is dragging certain parts of the anatomy.. I'm getting too old for this..

    Anyway, here are the pictures my wife took and kept. She had to take some are taken a little off angled to keep the glare from overhead lights and such, plus she uses her camera with only one hand. She walks on a cane right now until the doctor releases her. She just had hip surgery in January.

    I think these were the winners of the judging, but I don't know the categories right now. The little boy in the winners picture won best for students... he's an autistic and takes some special courses at the college... he's 6 years old and very talented artist. We didn't get a picture of his painting..
