I was so surprised and honored on January 10, 2014 to receive 2nd place for my encaustic painting, Opera Class, at this year's annual faculty and member exhibit, "In View", at The Art Center in Highland Park, Illinois. What a great exhibit with so much talent! The exhibit runs until February 1. TAC has been such a special and supportive community to me. They will never know how much I truly appreciate the wonderful team that runs this most welcoming gem of a gallery in Highland Park, IL! It is such a gift to everyone to have a place like this in a community. If you haven't been, I encourage you to check out their exhibits and classes. Here are pictures from the recent opening.
