Too Hot to be Cool: New Works Show Opens at Artspace

April 16, 2010 at 3:00 am (Art Unravelled)

The First Friday of this month marked the opening of the New Works Exhibition at Artspace.

New Works is an annual juried exhibition for members of the Artspace Artists Association (AAA), of which I am proud to be a part.  New Works represents work created within the past twelve months. This exhibition is an opportunity for Artspace Artists to present their most current and innovative work.

First Friday, awards were presented to the best of the best. Catherine Thornton’s painting Blue Monday received Best in Show.  New AAA member Lisa Stroud received Award of Distinction for her mixed media piece, Departures 1. Susan Parrish received Award of Merit for her mixed media sculpture, Too Hot to be Cool. Honorable mentions were awarded to Scott Hazard and Gretchen Morrissey.

I am so proud to have my Luggage Label Necklace  included in the New Works Exhibition, with these fabulous artists. This exhibition was juried by Harriet Green, Visual Arts Director of the South Carolina Arts Commission, and runs through May 1st at Artspace.
