I can't say that I can boast about blogging lately because I didn't realize it was so long since my last post; however; this is a busy time of year as a lot of you are well aware.
About three weeks ago I received the good news that my mat "Spreading Fish to Dry in Outport Newfoundland" was bought by the City Art Procurement Program. Here is an excerpt from their newsletter:
"the goals of the City’s Public Art Program is to engage the public with art and these new acquisitions enable the City to further its goal by displaying art in all municipal buildings. Through this program, the City also invests in its local arts community and builds a collection that will be accessible to future generations as public art. "
Needless to say, I am VERY proud of this. ALSO, one of them "Outdoor Mummers Scene" was selected by the Craft Council of NL. and is displayed at Devon House in ST. John's...If any my blogger friends are in the area over the Summer Holidays, you may want to take a peek...If you do, I would appreciate your feedback...
