2013 ARTtoBUY

rather than try to catch you up on all the things that have happened since this time last year, i figured id just start right here...in the present. here goes.

an acquaintance turned friend, suggested to another friend, that i should submit some of my work for Dayton Visual Arts Center's (DVAC) blind juried 2013 ARTtoBUY Holiday Show (which means they look at your work in private, not knowing whose it is...so you cant charm them. then they choose who is in or out. eesh.)

these friends of mine texted, private facebook messaged, and public facebook messaged me about this show, almost daily. they pretty much harassed me until i gave in (i see a pattern here). finally, i thought, "okay! fine!!!" (hahaha), and took the leap.

with more than just a few nerves involved, i submitted all seven designs of my laser etched, hand stained and polished, wood jewelry to DVAC's blind jury...AND WAS ACCEPTED! my pins and pendants will be shown and sold, along with the work of 40 other local artists from 1nov - 21dec.

i heart dayton!

from what i understand, ARTtoBUY has been a dayton thing for almost 20 years and im pretty humbled that i get to be a part of it this year.

 ARTtoBUY is DVAC's annual "Holiday Gift Gallery featuring 40 local artists; 100+ fine art and fine craft giftables at affordable prices". the opening reception for DVAC's ARTtoBUY show is Friday, 1nov13 from 5-8pm. along with the gallery opening, there will be food, wine, and music. support local art! come see me and also meet many other dayton artists, this friday night.
