I usually try to put something into the Renton Annual Art Show. This year I had two distinctly different entries because along with my usual industrial type painting I entered one of my Snitzels.
I was pleasantly surprised to find an invitation in this Tuesday's mail, with complimentary tickets, to attend the Preview Party on Thursday night because I had won a prize. It didn't say what prize or which piece had won the award.
Last night I was delighted to see that the Snitzel was the one that garnered the attention. It is so much different than what I usually do. And different from much of the other art in the show. This piece is a fabric collage, more or less. This is one that I have been posting about it's progress on this blog.
It won the Lucille Culliton Award of $100. Cool.
We have fun at the Art Preview. They serve free catered food and wine. I head straight for the wine! Then we look at the art until they serve the dessert. This year it was Tiramisu.
I have only one complaint (if anyone is listening) - I wish it started earlier in the evening. What's with waiting until 8pm to even begin? Maybe we could start at 7pm? That would be nice. Thank you very much.
