It was thrill to show my work at my first juried group exhibition ("12x12")at The Art Center (TAC) in Highland Park, IL. Opening show was Nov 20, 2009 and will run until Jan 4 (my bday), 2010. Please stop by and check it out if you are in the area. Here's my only decent pic of me with my art. My pieces in this display are the orange in black frame (Sunrise), the center piece (Hands), and the yellow piece (Lied) (the 3 pieces form a diagonal line). You can view the pieces in more detail on this blog.
The TAC is a fantastic place with great energy and an incredibly warm and friendly staff. They also offer great classes. Check them out here: http://www.theartcenterhp.org/
