Best Of Show :)

I was awed and amazed to realize that my piece, ‘Day 5′ won Best of Show last night in Ciel Gallery’s International Juried Exhibition, Flights of Fancy.  What an honor! There were mosaics from across the world with a diversity of styles that gave a good picture of fine art mosaic.  If you were unable to attend but live near Charlotte, NC or would like to visit there is another opportunity to see the show during the next SouthEnd Gallery Crawl on Friday, May 7 from 6-9pm as well as by appointment with the gallery.

There was a lot of interest in the meaning of ‘Day 5′ and the symbolism used and I will be unlocking the layers of meaning on this blog in a series of posts beginning soon.

Thanks to all who made the trip in for the show.  As it was my debut it meant so much to see friends who have been part of my life during the making of ‘Day 5′.  The icing on the cake was that this honor came on Good Friday which speaks to my heart in ways that I will cherish forever.  Sweet!


  1. Happiness is…. Best of Show ! ! ! Your meticulous artistic talent ‘wowed’ the judges as well as your blog follower’s. I am so thrilled for you to be recognized in the world of Mosaics. You truly deserve it. I look forward to seeing more of your awesome work on your blog.


  2. I knew you would make it! Congratulations!

  3. Congratulations! I’ve been corresponding with and following your mom’s blogs for a few years now … I’ll also be watching your new blog now.

    Your work is amazing ~ especially the water and trees (I’m not a fish person so I can take them or leave them in art).

    Enjoy the journey ~

  4. I’m fascinated with your creative process and can’t wait to here your comments on the symbolism. What a celebratory time for you. Congratulations.
